Almeida Street, London, N1 1TA, United Kingdom | 020 7359 4404 | Website

Venue Description

A small room with an international reputation, the Almeida began life as a literary and scientific society – complete with library, lecture theatre and laboratory. From the beginning, our building existed to investigate the world. Today, we make brave new work that asks big questions: of plays, of theatre and of the world around us. We bring together the most exciting artists to take risks; to provoke, inspire and surprise our audiences; to interrogate the present, dig up the past and imagine the future. Whether new work or reinvigorated classic, whether in our theatre, on the road or online, we make live art to excite, enliven and entertain.


The Almeida Theatre aims to be as accessible as possible. As well as our accessible facilities - which include ground level entrances, a ramp, accessible toilets, a fully accessible bar and cafe - we also provide a range of assisted performances throughout the year. A section of the bar counter is low level (0.9m). Access needs have been taken into account with the provision of all glassware, crockery and cutlery. Hearing dogs and guide dogs are welcome. If we can do anything to make your visit more enjoyable please contact our access team on 020 7288 4999 or email
