London Theatre Workshop relocates to Central London site

London Theatre Workshop has announced that after two successful years located above the Eel Brook Pub in Fulham, the company is relocating to an exciting new venue in Central London.

Under Rackham, the company’s mission as a hub for theatrical innovation will be further established in the new space

The company’s new home is nestled right in the heart of the City of London’s financial district, within the beautiful and historic Leadenhall Market. A short walk from Liverpool Street, London Bridge, Bank and Monument stations, the new space is being re-developed to house a 60-seat theatre, much-needed rehearsal space, plus a creatives’ workshop and office.

London Theatre Workshop will officially re-open in March 2016 as a venue that can be hired for rehearsals, auditions, workshops and rehearsed readings. The company’s first season of in-house work will be announced in the coming months. A series of opening events, guided tours and performances is currently being scheduled.

It is confirmed that Ray Rackham will continue as Artistic Director for London Theatre Workshop. Under Rackham, the company’s mission as a hub for theatrical innovation will be further established in the new space; dedicated to finding, developing and producing theatre of the highest quality, celebrating the fusion between music and drama.

“I am overjoyed that we have been able to move to such an incredible location as Leadenhall Market. With the improvements to our infrastructure, the addition of much needed space, and through the dedication of so many individuals over the last two years, London Theatre Workshop has a fantastic future.

“Under my Artistic Directorship, the company will be committed to nurturing budding industry talent, offering a platform that provides an opportunity for theatre practitioners to develop essential skills in all areas of theatrical production. I am honoured that our wider LTW Family has trusted me with the task of leading the company into 2016” — Ray Rackham, Artistic Director London Theatre Workshop

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
