Information for companies

⚠️ UPDATE - JANUARY 2023: due to the change of our funding status, Blue Elephant Theatre will pause its programming from April 2023 onwards.

We are still accepting hire requests, and are probably more suitable as a rehearsal venue while we can establish a package for hiring for performances - please enquire by emailing hires@blueelephanttheatre.co.uk.

We hope to produce short festivals of new 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 get in touch if you have any questions or would like to make a booking!
