Designed in stylish dark wood, this elegant theatre space sits at the heart of the Laban building and offers a contrasting environment to the bright colours of the surrounding corridors and studio spaces.

Our 300-seat Laban Theatre is a key venue for conferences, award ceremonies, product launches and various other events.

The stage area offers an alternative space for meetings, seated dinners and film or photography shoots, while the impressive lighting and sound capabilities and a single purchase counterweight flying facility offer enormous creative potential for any event.

Technical services can be tailored to meet the needs of each individual event and our dedicated team will be happy to offer advice on the best use of our facilities.
