About this space

Home to powerful new plays and our biggest acts, our Theatre is available for daytime hire. As the only venue of this size in central London, the Theatre plays host to all manner of events – showcases, industry conferences, TED talks, meet-and-greets and product launches.

At 150 capacity the Theatre is our largest venue, with seating on a raked bank and two balconies. The stage is at floor level and is 10 x 6.5m, please note – there may be a theatrical set in place during your event. Whether it’s colourful flooring or a fixed backdrop, a set adds a unique element to any event, and we will endeavour to communicate this design with you at the point of booking.
Due to our busy building there is limited backstage area, please let us know if you require a crossover or offstage entrance and we’ll provide a creative solution.

There is lift access to the venue, both at the audience entrance and at stage level. Please let us know if you have any additional access requirements. There are gender neutral and accessible toilets on the same floor.
Use of the Theatre’s lighting and sound rig is included in your booking, along with a dedicated venue Technician, Venue Manager and Ushers.

Availability is dependent on the Soho programme of shows, matinees and workshops, general hours are:
Monday to Friday: 9am – 6pm
Saturday: Midday – 6pm
Sunday: 10am – 10pm

The adjacent dressing rooms do not form part of hires. If you do require a dressing room / break out space, the Seminar Room on the 3rd floor can be hired for a £50 + VAT day rate when a performance space is booked.

Our two Meeting Rooms can accommodate 8 – 20 attendees, and are perfect for castings, board meetings and small workshops.

Hires of the performance spaces are available any day of the week – programming dependent. As the building is generally closed on Sundays, the meeting rooms are not available on Sundays, unless booked in conjunction with a venue.

Soho Theatre Bar is an airy, lively space for a welcome drink or an event reception, as well as a whole host of catering options sources from our local and national partners.
