The Arts Theatre opened on 20 April 1927 and was known for putting on experimental and diverse sets of performances, quite different from the other theatres of the time. This independent theatre started as a members-only club to avoid censorship from the Lord Chamberlain's office. Along with the likes of Hampstead Everyman, the Gate Theatre Studio and the Q Theatre, it was known as a space for the nurturing of new and avant-garde productions. Decades later, it is now West End’s smallest commercial theatre, still holding to its ethos of providing a platform for different performances. The Arts Theatre is the perfect intimate venue to enjoy a show unlike what you’ve seen before.
