Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on Arcola Theatre and the whole of the arts ecology. But we’ve got a plan for the future:
1. Create Arcola Outside, our new outdoor theatre, bar and community hub
2. Restart shows, including a Hackney-wide outdoor festival in 2021 to create opportunities for a wide range of artists and freelance workers
3. Prepare to reopen our building safely, working with scientists from leading universities
Welcome to Arcola
In the heart of East London and beyond, we produce daring, high-quality theatre for all.
“You can’t help loving the Arcola … it mixes the local, the national and the international in one heady brew”
