Step into Arcola Outside as part of Open House 2021

Saturday 4 September
10.30am – 12.30pm

This Saturday 4th September, we’ll be opening our doors for a special event as part of the 2021 Open House London Festival. Open House offer members of the public opportunities to visit iconic buildings and landmarks, finding more about their construction and history.

Arcola Outside is our brand-new outdoor performance space and bar in the heart of Dalston, designed by multi-award-winning stage designer Jon Bausor (London 2012 Paralympics Opening Ceremony, Bat Out of Hell: The Musical, The Grinning Man), and built by a team of freelance theatre and live events technicians.

Our new space is 60 metres from the theatre’s main building on Ashwin Street, reimagining Arcola’s performance spaces and bar, bringing them together under a giant roof. Arcola Outside benefits from being an outdoor space, making it a safer place to enjoy live performance. It’s great to be back.

This summer, Arcola Outside is home to Today I’m Wiser and Grimeborn Opera Festival.
