Brixton House opened to the public in early 2022. Our new theatre is in the heart of Brixton’s local community, and we welcome artists and audiences to enjoy and create experiences in our new home.
Our new House has two theatres, seven rehearsal rooms including ceiling heights for aerial performances, high-quality technical facilities, and fully accessible spaces, including wheelchair-accessible rigs.
The comfortable, yet stylish café and bar will be open to the public throughout the day for social gatherings as well as for meetings and creative arts. Next door, the newly refurbished Carlton Mansions will reopen to house offices for creative organisations. ?
Designed by Edmund Wilson of Foster Wilson Architects, the new theatre incorporates sustainable raw materials throughout, while boldly displaying modern features and illuminations. Galliford Try has worked on the construction build.
The building development is part of the Somerleyton Road Development Project in partnership with the London Borough of Lambeth. As a new theatre embedded in the community, Brixton House aims to serve the residents and the creative community of Brixton and beyond.
