Jerwood Space is now regarded as the country's premier theatre & dance rehearsal complex. We provide “excellent facilities for the work of art” so performing arts professionals can enjoy the best conditions to make their very best work.
A major initiative of the Jerwood Foundation opened in 1998 and further extended in 2007, this beautifully refurbished Victorian school building houses seven studios (five with production offices) and two meeting rooms, all air-conditioned and accessible, with parking, wi-fi, sprung floors, pianos, Green Room, showers and a café. The facilities are available to established companies at competitive rates and we’re also able to subsidise the cost of rehearsal/auditions/readings for selected young, emerging dance and theatre companies, so they can develop their work at a greatly reduced cost.
The public is also very welcome to use the Jerwood Space. The school's bike sheds have been converted into a magnificent contemporary art Gallery featuring year-round Jerwood Visual Arts exhibitions, next to Café 171and the stylish and spectacular surroundings of the Glasshouse, Courtyard and garden. Our spaces may be hired for all kinds of corporate and private events including receptions, banquets, parties and weddings, while our two rooftop board rooms offer fully serviced meetings.
