Hire our theatre
Looking for an intimate, unique space for an event? Our theatre on Dagmar Passage is available for hire. Recent events have included cabaret showcases, talks, parties and book launches.
Our auditorium seats 80 people on raked benches and our foyer can be used as space for drinks, snacks and mingling for up to 50 people.
Our theatre stage is 3 x 3m, and we can provide a basic sound and lighting set up. For more information, have a look at our hire tech spec.
There is access to the stage from the auditorium and from a door side stage, which leads to our foyer. Please note, we have very minimal dressing room and backstage space, and (as we’re a working theatre) our backstage space is not usually available to use. Under 18s are not allowed backstage at any time.
We do not provide advance ticketing services for events, but can run collections and cash sales during the event. We can also run a bar, with wine, bottles of beer and cider, soft drinks and filter coffee and tea.
We programme our own shows during the day, with best availability for hires being weekday evenings. Restrictions on our licence mean events must be over by 10:30pm.
Prices start at £500 + VAT for a four hour evening hire, including front of house staff and a technician to operate your event. Additional hours or technical needs out of our usual scope will incur additional charges.
Hire our studios
Need rehearsal, meeting or studio space? Little Angel Studios on Sebbon Street has a variety of rooms available.
Studio 1 – Rehearsal and performance space
Studio 1 is a 10 x 10m, high ceilinged rehearsal and performance space, with a lighting rig and blacks, on the first floor of Little Angel Studios. Technical specifications can be found here.
We present our own shows in Studio 1, and also use it as a rehearsal and event space. During the week, the edges of the studio are used as a route round the building by office staff, and we can use the blacks to create a more private space in the centre of the room. The studio comes with access to a communal kitchen, and plenty of folding chairs and tables. Capacity is variable depending on the nature of your event – we usually cap our audiences at 65, and our workshops at 40 participants, depending on the nature of the work.
Studio 1 costs £55 + VAT p/h to hire for rehearsals (with no tech) and meetings. It is also available for one off events. These sorts of hires will incur a staffing charge, as will any use of our technical equipment.
Please note, we do not hire the theatre or Studio 1 for runs of performances, and external hires will not be advertised at Little Angel Theatre, or as part of Little Angel Theatre’s programming.
Studio 2 – Rehearsal and workshop space
Studio 2 is an 8.3 x 7.5m rehearsal space, on the ground floor of Little Angel Studios. It is wheelchair accessible, with access to a communal kitchen and plenty of folding chairs and tables available for use. The room has a maximum capacity of 33.
The room is available for one off and repeat bookings. We use the room for evening classes, so cannot provide exclusive use for rehearsals, but can provide overnight storage for props and equipment onsite.
Studio 2 costs £30 + VAT p/h to hire, with discounts available for repeat bookings.
Studio 3 – Meeting space
Studio 3 is our smallest room, ideal for meetings. This 7.5 x 3.6m space is on the ground floor of Little Angel Studios, and hire includes access to a communal kitchen and plenty of folding chairs and tables. The room has a maximum capacity of 16.
Studio 3 costs £20 + VAT p/h to hire, with discounts available for repeat bookings.
