The New London Theatre’s auditorium is available for daytime hire from 9am-4pm. This sizeable auditorium makes a perfect venue for many events that require a captive audience; from a conference to award ceremonies, company announcements and product launches, your AGM or a press launch. Graduation ceremonies are well suited to this space as well as educational seminars. It benefits from front of house areas which work well for break out options too. With new seating, the modern auditorium is practical and comfortable. There are 1,071 seats across 2 levels in the Stalls and Dress Circle.

    More about  Gillian Lynne Theatre

    Whilst the New London is a contemporary building there has been entertainment on the site since the Elizabethan era. The theatre is close to both Covent Garden and Holborn tubes. The New London’s versatile auditorium was intended for use as a conference centre and multi-use venue and the original proscenium panels were fully restored after the closure of Cats in 2001.
