What's on


Found beneath the Radio City tower in Williamson Square, the Playhouse has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building for both its old 19th century auditorium and 20th century front of house extension. Seating 677 across three levels in a traditional proscenium arch setting, it is a surprisingly intimate theatre.

As well as the main stage, the upstairs Studio serves as a performance space and rehearsal room.
