  • The John Lyons Theatre is a modern space, available for a wide range of corporate and private events or theatre productions located in the heart of London, between Covent Garden and Holborn. 

    The theatres refit and refurbishment has allowed us to inspire and showcase the work of our talented students. It provides up-to-date technology, enhancing the audience experience and creating a versatile space that can be used for theatre, dance, music and lectures. It also provides a state-of-the art venue for our growing programme of events supporting our social agenda, including community events, which we are also able to offer for venue hire.

    Please note we are not currently taking bookings for the John Lyons Theatre or our teaching spaces due to our teaching priorities during term 1.
