More about A Museum in Baghdad

In 1926, the nation of Iraq is in its infancy, and British archaeologist Gertrude Bell is founding a museum in Baghdad. In 2006, Ghalia Hussein is attempting to reopen the museum after looting during the war.
Decades apart, these two women share the same goals: to create a fresh sense of unity and nationhood, to make the world anew through the museum and its treasures. But in such unstable times, questions remain. Who is the museum for? Whose culture are we preserving? And why does it matter when people are dying?

The Kiln Theatre (formerly The Tricycle Theatre)

269 Kilburn High Road, London, NW6 7JR
View Seating Plan

Our building has a proud history, starting life in 1929 as a meeting hall for the Friendly Society of Foresters. The hall was converted to a theatre in 1980 by Shirley Barrie and Ken Chubb, who named it the Tricycle in honour of their touring theatre company, the Wakefield Tricycle Company. In 1984, Nicolas Kent became the artistic director of the Tricycle Theatre and for the next 28 years grew its reputation as a major political powerhouse.

Today, following our much-needed major architectural renovation, the building is future-proofed for the next generations of theatregoers and theatre-makers. Our capital development project has:

  • made our theatre accessible to everyone: in our front of house areas, in our auditorium and backstage
  • improved the theatrical experience with a flexible stage, individual comfortable seating and great sightlines throughout the auditorium
  • created improvements outside the auditorium, by building more toilets and opening a welcoming new café on Kilburn High Road
  • unearthed original features from the Foresters’ Hall and made them visible within the building

Everyone here has worked tirelessly to achieve this ambitious project. We are really proud that with these essential improvements we can ensure our longevity as a theatre of international reach and a space for the whole community, while celebrating our history and everything that has come before us.

This transformed Tricycle is renamed Kiln Theatre – a name that echoes Kilburn, the place where we live. It speaks of energy and creativity and inspires a sense of warmth. We are a local theatre with international influence, proudly located in Brent, the most culturally diverse borough in London.
