About Soho Theatre

If you’re looking for a unique venue, bang in the heart of central London, Soho Theatre is the perfect place for your event.

We have three performance spaces available for showcases, filming, conferences, press launches, lectures or company meetings – just metres from Oxford Street and Shaftesbury Avenue. Soho Upstairs is a black box studio, Soho Theatre our main auditorium with raked audience seating, and Soho Downstairs is our versatile cabaret bar.
Our two Meeting Rooms can accommodate 8 – 20 attendees, and are perfect for castings, board meetings and small workshops.

Availability for hires is worked around our busy programme of shows, meaning we don’t offer hires after 6pm or before 9am (10am on Sundays). 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.

All our venues and meeting rooms have free Wi-Fi and are accessible via a lift or staircase.

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.

Unfortunately, dressing room facilities, Box Office services, and promotional services are not available to hires clients. We don’t offer hires for shows, so if you’d like to bring a show to Soho Theatre please check out our Submissions page and tell our artistic team about your work.
