|> About the Trafalgar Studios|
Auditorium Studio 1
Newly refurbished, the clean design of Studio 1 is strikingly modern and makes for a professional and impressive space for an event. The raked seating affords an excellent view from all points, whilst the amphitheatre design and excellent acoustics lends the space to presentations and lectures. The flexibility of the stage, which can be built up, or can remain at floor-level, makes it ideal for showcase hires. Please note that the stage and auditorium configuration is dependent upon the resident production and that neither auditorium has a safety curtain.
Auditorium Studio 2
Sponsored by Covent Garden’s legendary Christina Smith and the most intimate space in our portfolio, Studio 2 is ideal for play-readings, workshops and smaller showcases. The modern, clean design consists of striking red bench seats which surround the floor-level stage on three sides. The black box design makes it incredibly flexible in accommodating a range of smaller hires. Please note that the set and seating arrangement is dependent upon the resident production, and that neither auditorium has a safety curtain.
Sympathetic to the building’s original design, the foyer bar is decorated in the Art Deco style. Spacious and airy, it makes for a grand entrance to the theatre; with an adjoining cloakroom it is also ideal for standing receptions. Please note that the Box Office shares this space, and so a cordoned area must be accessible to the public during the week, it can however be hired exclusively on Sundays.
Recently refurbished in the Miami Deco style, a contemporary interpretation of Art Deco, this modern, clean, spacious bar makes for a professional and impressive destination for entertaining, as part of a studio hire, or as a private space for formal meetings. The bar itself is decorated with colour LED lighting panels, which can be designed bespoke to suit your event. There is access to both Studio spaces, toilets, and lift access for wheel-chair users. Stunning black and white photos from the Getty collection decorate the bar and adjoining corridor spaces and make a real talking point for any event.
