Blue Elephant Theatre is to Become a NPO

We are delighted to have had very good news recently!

Blue Elephant Theatre was amongst just five new theatre organisations in London to be added to Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations on June 27th. This will offer stability the organisation has never had before and allow us to continue our work offering creative opportunities as widely as possible.

Information for companies

Update We're looking for short-run shows to programme in July and August - please see our 'News' section for more information

We are still accepting hire requests, with one-off day rates starting at £200. There are discounts for charities and longterm hires.

The theatre is a wonderful rehearsal space and also ideally suited to technical rehearsals (ahead of tours, Edinburgh Festival Fringe etc), photoshoots and video shoots. We also offer deals for performances. Please enquire about our space by emailing

We hope to programme short festivals of work later on depending on our funding situation - please do keep an eye out for announcements about this in the future.

We are a 50-seat black box theatre, with level access from the street and an accessible toilet on the same floor. Our stage area is approximately 7.5m by 5.5m, and ideal for rehearsals, workshops, readthroughs and other events. Please scroll down to see photos and plans of the space. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to make a booking!
