> About the Playhouse Theatre

Auditorium The large capacity auditorium is perfect for conferences, lectures, showcases and comedy nights. The opulent interior is decorated in rich reds, bright golds and milky creams, beautifully off-set by two eccentric full size lanterns in the main auditorium, and grand, elaborate chandeliers hanging in both boxes. In-keeping with the Dress and Upper Circle bars, stunning murals adorn the walls, representing the Italian tradition of Comedia dell’arte on one side, and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the other. The grand and eccentric decor, combines with the intimacy of the auditorium, has turned the Playhouse into a favourite for many West End actors. Wonderfully adaptable, the auditorium can cater for all manner of hires. With a stunning setting and a first-rate team, the Playhouse is home to many returning events.

Foyer/Box Office Light and spacious, the beautifully decorated foyer is a popular location for photo-shoots. The neutral walls, chequered marble floor, gold, red and wooden detail, and large gilt mirrors make for a grand and impressive entrance to the venue.

Stalls Bar This spacious, modern bar is stylishly decorated in neutral colours with sleek leather seating and wooden floors. The room is divided by a partition wall, creating an incredibly flexible space which can be used as one space, or separated in to two, ideal for housing an informal entertaining area, alongside a formal, seated meeting area.
