Soho Theatre sits right in the middle of London’s lively and historic West End. Its roots in this theatrical neighbourhood stretch back to 1969, when the Soho Theatre Company was formed at a venue just up the road in Compton Street. After a few moves between different theatres, the company found its home at its current location in 2000.

Right in the middle of this vibrant area, this purpose-built venue accommodates for many theatrical art forms ranging from theatre, comedy, and cabaret to writers’ events. Whilst hosting these various productions, Soho Theatre also plays a crucial role in nurturing new talent through a writers’ development programme, making it one of the most important venues to London’s theatre culture.

The theatre is led by Executive Director, Mark Godfrey, who is proud to welcome 167,000 people to the theatre each year. Despite its vast popularity, the intimate 150-seat theatre, and 90-seat upstairs cabaret space encourage a very close relationship between audience and stage. At Soho Theatre you feel like an active part of London’s theatrical community.
