Theatre N16 secures future by partnering with London arts space Styx

Theatre N16's new partnership with north London arts space Styx, above, marks its third home
by -

Fringe company Theatre N16 has secured its future after partnering with north London’s Styx, in a move that will see it take on all theatre programming for the arts venue.

The fringe theatre, which had been based in the Bedford pub in Balham, was forced to leave the premises at the end of last year, after the Bedford’s new owners decide to redevelop the space.

Its new partnership with Styx marks its third home, after it was also forced to vacate its original premises in Stoke Newington in 2015.

Theatre N16 will take over all theatre production and programming at Styx from March.

Theatre N16 founder Jamie Eastlake said: “We are ecstatic to move into an even more exciting space for the next 12 months and continue with our ethos of allowing theatre companies to produce work with the lowest overheads on the London fringe.”

He said the theatre company would continue with existing schemes, such as First Credit, which gives actors their first professional and paid work.
