Free Word Theatre

Multipurpose theatre space

We can host anything from breakfast meetings to awards ceremonies. In our fully equipped theatre, we’ve hosted film showings, live performances, panel discussions, music gigs, product launches, dinners and a wide variety of other events.

Free Word’s lecture theatre accommodates up to 90 people. This attractive, intimate space has hosted everything from poetry readings to album launches. We can set the theatre up in different layouts depending on your requirements - from theatre-style seating for 90 or 50 people, to cabaret-style for 30 people or less. We have a wide selection of technical equipment available, with an experienced technician on site to manage your requirements.

There is a hearing loop available when the space is set up theatre-style, with raked seating. We can also offer the space for larger day time meetings without technical requirements.

The theatre can also be booked with the Free Word Hall at a discounted package rate.

To book an event space or for further information please email or call 020 7324 8904.
