Hire the Bloomsbury Theatre and Studio

Our landmark Brutalist building has been lovingly restored to create two state-of-the-art theatre spaces: a spectacular main auditorium with more than 500 luxurious seats, and the smaller, more intimate Bloomsbury Studio. We are fantastically located in the heart of London, less than a five minute walk from King's Cross and Euston Underground and National Rail stations. 

Have an idea for the theatre and want to collaborate with us? Or looking for a unique space to hold your own event? We want to hear from you.
