Venue Description

Based in the heart of Deptford, the Albany is a performing arts centre with a history stretching back to the nineteenth century. Over the last few years, we have emerged as a new type of arts venue, very much driven by the cultural diversity and creative mix of South East London. Involving people, through participation and partnerships, is central to our work and is essential to the delivery of our vision.


The Albany’s Box Office, theatre, studios and café are all on the ground floor, as well as some of our meeting rooms. We also have fully accessible toilets on the ground floor and lift access to the first floor meeting rooms, offices and bar. Our garden can be reached through double doors in our café. Limited disabled parking is available to the rear of the building and there is also free on street parking on Watson’s Street, Octavius Street and Frankham Street. Deptford Station has lift access. We can accommodate a limited number of wheelchairs in all of our performance spaces. Please inform box office when you book so we can make provision for this and reserve your space. If your mobility requirements necessitate someone to assist you with your trip to the Albany, we can arrange a complimentary ticket for your companion.

Accessible Performances

If you are deaf or hard of hearing: There is an induction loop at our Box Office and reception for hearing aid users. Hearing dogs can be brought into the auditorium or left with our staff during a performance. We have regular BSL interpreted performances - look for the BSL button in our paper brochure or the electronic version here. Relaxed Performances: Throughout the year we aim to programme a number of relaxed performances to our family theatre shows for children with Autism, Asperger’s or other learning disabilities. These performances are designed to be more relaxed with the option to leave and re-enter the theatre at any time. We make sure the lights don’t get too dark and the sounds aren’t too loud. If it all gets a little too much, there is also the option to use our ‘chill out’ room with games and space to move around and make noise.
