About this room

The Parlour is our ground floor communal space, that can be hired for events and meetings or small scale parties. It is a warm and welcoming space, offering the feel of a homely living room, ideal for relaxed meetings or small gatherings. Our Parlour is also used as an additional space for larger events and celebrations, and has been used for photo shoots.

The Parlour can remain open or closed to our building with our wooden sliding doors, allowing for the space to be altered from an open and relaxed environment to a place more intimate and private.

Our Parlour room can facilitate up to 20 people.

Rules of the space


Our spaces are available for hire subject to availability.

We have a no shoes, food or drink policy within our two studio spaces. Our harlequin dance floor can be removed at extra cost to allow for shoes, food and drink for events/venue hire.

Please note that we can apply for a temporary extension for our building to remain open on Fridays and Saturdays until 12am, but we are unable to take bookings for hires past this time.

Additional Space Information:

Neither the Roof Studio nor the Research Studio are equipped with barres or mirrors but audio-visual equipment can be made available to suit your needs. Our experienced Studios team can help you to make sure your rehearsal, workshop or class runs smoothly.

We have a kitchenette available, which has a functioning microwave, kettle, fridge, sink and kitchen equipment/utensils.

Our nearest tube and rail station is Elephant and Castle which is a 5-minute walk from the station. Other nearby stations are Waterloo and Lambeth North. There are cafes and shops in the surrounding area.

Our South London Studios are available to hire for rehearsals, meetings and special events. From our large, beautiful Roof and Research studios to our small meeting spaces we can provide the ideal setting for parties, celebrations or whatever event space you may need.

The building was originally built in 1898 as a school annex. And in 2006, RIBA-award winning architect Sarah Wigglesworth redesigned the building into a flexible event space in a sustainable and innovative way. The building is balanced between old and new design, and the footprint of the original building remains.

The Studios holds a civil wedding licence, so wedding and civil partnership ceremonies and celebrations can both be held on site.

The Studios also provides the perfect venue for children’s parties, offering a selection of large, engaging spaces for children to play in, and quieter areas for serving refreshments.

The numerous flexible spaces can be used for a range of corporate events such as launch parties, conferences, photo shoots and film screenings, and AV equipment and technical support can also be provided.

Please note: neither the Roof Studio nor the Research Studio are equipped with barres or mirrors, and we ask that hirers remove their shoes before using either space to preserve the condition of the linoleum flooring. For events and larger hires the linoleum may be taken up and shoes worn, although this incurs an extra charge.
