To celebrate the opening of the newly refurbished space, we are pleased to announce our Seat Sponsorship Programme.

During the course of our long history, City Lit has become an integral part of creative industries in London and our influence is felt across the globe, through our teaching and the work of our students. Our Performing and Visual Arts students have graced our screens, appeared on stage and can be heard through the airwaves. Key to their experience has been the John Lyon’s Theatre, a studio theatre at the heart of the college. 

Originally built with funds from the John Lyon’s Charity, the John Lyons theatre has undergone a major refit and refurbishment and now provides up-to-date technology, enhancing the audience experience and creating a versatile space that can be used for theatre, dance, music, and lectures.
