Nice north London performance space Jun 18, 2017
This theatre space is housed in a 'retired'early twentieth century (1905) century Wesleyan Methodist (designed in Gothic styleby W. H. Boney of Highgate) church close to Highgate Underground Station. The church closed in the early 1970s, and was threatened with demolition, but saved from it by the action of local residents. One of the then local councillors, who helped approve finance for its conversion to a theatre was the current leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn.

The theatre has been active since it opened in 1975, and has been a local cultural centre since then.

A small foyer leads into a large auditorium with well-raked, reasonably comfortable seating. The stage is reasonably large, and the acoustics are good.

The theatre is located close to a number of eating places.

Sounds like a good use for a former church.
