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
