About this space

The basement is a 32 sq metre/350 sq ft room. It's quiet and private with an excellent upright piano (£2 extra per hour), a long mirror on one wall, lots of light (all artificial), wifi and many chairs and tables. NB there is no natural light and the ceiling is low, 7ft, so it has its limitations.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. The space is great too.

Easy booking process. Flexible intelligent cheerful people on the phone and on the desk. Perfect room for a shortish meeting. Great being below a bookshop. Quiet. Easy to get to. Lovely.

The room is a basement room - this is clear and it was great for my needs. I would not want to rehearse a play there over several days I think.

No dislikes. I’ll be coming back to use this space again

About The Calder Theatre Bookshop

We are very central, a 2 minute walk from Waterloo station. It's not glamorous like some other places but in comparison it's inexpensive. So it's cheap and it's central, also we just charge one flat rate whether you want the theatre space or the basement, there's no sliding scale, it's all transparent. And you can book for just one hour if you want, there's no minimum.
