This is a room with a 15 square metre stage and 24 seats once belonging to the Palladium. NB This space is only ever rented out for rehearsals and castings/auditions, meetings etc, never for performance. It's separated from the bookshop by a partition, which doesn't make it totally soundproof. However it's used often for castings and auditions - ...

The space is a 32 square metre or 350 square feet room. It's quiet and private with an excellent upright piano (£1 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.

Amazing venue quiet and the host is great. Have used multiple times and not at all disappointed

Perfect for small theatre rehearsal. Priced very reasonably to not compete with more “corporate” venues.

Could have been a little warmer, but host supplied heater which helped.

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.
We have a 72 hours cancellation policy.
