A good small theatre in Central London. The price is really competitive. Good lights, projectors. Very clean. Amazing location. Use exclusive of the box office. Carys, the technical manager, is lovely <3

Not a big changing room, but we managed to work with it. The floor is not suitable for dancing on point and the theatre does not own a dance floor. But we have fixed this problem by hiring a dance floor.

Lovely, clean space; professional service all round; sound and picture quality excellent (better than the cinema, according to some of the guests); great tech support; comfortable seating; pleased to have the event (which was open to the public) promoted via City Lit's twitter account.

Shame that the cafe wasn't open on the Sunday; price on the high side as it we had no option other than to accept the all-day-Sunday booking, but would still consider using again.
