WELCOME TO THE ARTS THEATRE

Welcome to the ARTS THEATRE, an independent commercial theatre situated in the heart of London’s West End, providing a dynamic programme of entertainment of all genres.

Our main house is a 350-seat proscenium arch theatre which has been in operation since 1927. In March 2015 we opened the doors to our 60-seat studio theatre, ABOVE THE ARTS, situated on the first floor.

The Arts is also home to ROOMS AT THE ARTS, available for hire for rehearsals and workshops, the MADD Hatters café, Covent Garden Cocktail Club and a private event space.

The Arts is the West End’s most vibrant theatre complex. We look forward to welcoming you through our doors very soon.
