John Lyons Theatre

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.

Iterating - 30min multi-disciplinary production, Tuesday 3 March 2020 - Bookings >

“ITERATING” is a production that discusses the status quo of the internet including social media, data surveillance and censorship. This project is a dance performance combining installation, multimedia and audience participation. Instead of letting the audience limited in their seats, this will be an immersive spatial performance without seats. Please feel free to move in the space. For anyone interested in performance, dance and installation, please come and join. The topic is for all the people who concerned about our society and surroundings to experience the predictions of the future. Creator: Effie Gu
