GO Theatre In North London

Theatre in North London London’s world famous West End seems to cast a large shadow over other theatres in the capital, but you may find that there are some in north London worth shining a light on.

In 1996 the Pleasance Theatre [map] opened a London franchise to partner its well-known Edinburgh venue. The aim was to put on innovative and exciting productions, and if you look at their programme you’ll see they’ve probably succeeded. The Islington venue is home to two spaces a smaller studio area called StageSpace, which was created to nurture new creative voices while the main stage shows musicals, drama, comedy as well as previews of Fringe Festival acts in spring/summer.

Because of its inclusive attitude Jackson’s Lane [map] in Highgate has a diverse range of performances on the programme. Dance, Drama, Comedy and much, much more are all able to take centre stage throughout the year. The theatre also supports the local community’s appetite for the arts by offering classes and workshops for young and old alike.

Also with a broad menu of entertainments to enjoy is the Millfield Arts Centre [map] in Edmonton. You’ll find popular dramatic and musical productions alongside touring comedy and several “An evening with…” style shows.

Islington’s Little Angel Theatre [map] has something more unique to offer theatre goers. As the oldest puppet theatre in England, it showcases the best of puppetry not just for kids but for anyone willing to discover the power of this unconventional art form.

The capital is soon to have a new multifunctional arts centre in north London. The Arts Depot [map] is a purpose built venue housing two state of the art theatres alongside exhibition areas and studios. Although the programme of events didn't start until September 2004, the venue has already managed to attract artist patrons including world renowned solo percussionist Evelyn Glennie OBE, actor Richard Wilson OBE and actress Miranda Richardson.
