Welcoming over 70,000 people through our doors every year, Shoreditch Town Hall is a leading independent cultural, live events and community space housed in one of the grandest former civic buildings in the capital. Comprising over 48,000 square feet across 70 individual rooms, the Grade II listed Town Hall is the largest multi-artform venue in Hackney and more in use than at any other point in its recent history.
With 8 main spaces from 40 to 800 capacity, we present a year-round cultural programme of bold and innovative new theatre, music, dance, circus, comedy and talks, as well as host 200 live event hires every year. Our artist development programme supports 50 artists, and commissions up to 8 new pieces of live performance a year, and we collaborate with a range of local partners to deliver an extensive community and engagement programme.
Shoreditch Town Hall partners with leading UK drama school Mountview on the MA in Site-Specific Theatre Practice, and we're also home to 6 local businesses including the two Michelin starred The Clove Club.
Since 2012, we have invested £2.3m in the restoration and development of our Grade II listed building.
Our cultural programme has recently included work with Barely Methodical Troupe, curious directive, dreamthinkspeak, Jamie Lloyd, Kneehigh, LIFT, Manchester International Festival, Nigel Barrett & Louise Mari, Royal Shakespeare Company, ThisEgg and The Wardrobe Ensemble, alongside events with the likes of Alexander McQueen, Amazon, Cartier, Channel 4, Fred Perry, Red Bull, and the filming of The Death of Stalin, Florence Foster Jenkins and The Lady in the Van.
Shoreditch Town Hall is a registered charity (1069617) and receives no regular or revenue funding thus relying on 100% earned income every year.
