About

The Space is a performing arts and community centre based in a converted church on the Isle of Dogs, East London.  In May 2015 we activated a new performance space in the Crossrail Place Roof Garden in collaboration with the Canary Wharf group. This exciting venue will run from May-August alongside our usual year-round activities at our original site on Westferry Road.

 

Run by St Paul’s Arts Trust, we’re committed to providing a broad range of events and opportunities for new performers of all kinds.  We believe in giving people space:

.

THE SPACE TO ENJOY

.

We programme a year-round, exciting mixture of theatre, music, comedy and dance events.  Our performances are usually scheduled on Tuesday – Sunday evenings with workshops for all age groups on Monday nights. With our home-grown theatre productions and approximately 200 events per year, there’s always something to look forward to.

THE SPACE TO EXPLORE

.

SpaceWorks, our in-house theatre company, provides regular weekly workshops in performance for 7-11 year olds and adults.  We also provide training in a wide range of technical theatre and arts administration skills.  Working with experienced professionals and absolute beginners, whether you’re more comfortable on stage or off, there are opportunities for everyone to get involved.

THE SPACE TO BE

.

The Space is a warm, friendly, welcoming place.  Whether you’re coming to an event or a workshop or simply to enjoy Hubbub, our café/bar, we’re always pleased to see you.
