The Space

In a converted paint factory at the heart of trendy Dalston, Arcola Theatre is a hub of culture and imagination for creatives and business professionals. Celebrated for its sustainability, it lies just north of the City of London, a one-minute walk from two Overground stations, 20 minutes from Oxford Circus.

Arcola hosts hundreds of events each year. Its diverse range of spaces suit anything from meetings for 2, to conferences for almost 200, while the buzzing atmosphere makes it perfect for escaping the clutches of a stale office environment.  Both auditoria make for an exciting space to host away days*, presentations and conferences. Events occur on existing sets for Arcola’s productions, bringing quirk and originality to each experience. 

Upstairs, studios with an abundance of natural light provide spacious environments for meetings and workshops. They are regularly in demand for parties and launches, enhanced by ambient lighting and a private bar. And there’s always the award-winning Arcola Bar, where delegates can relax at the end of a long day with local craft beer, spirits and more. We offer catering options, technical equipment and free Wi-Fi to support your event, and our dedicated technicians, front of house and bar staff – as well as our in-house IT team - can be on hand to ensure you get the most out of your day.

You’ll find a fantastic home for your event at Arcola Theatre. Why not get in touch to find out more?
