About The Space
The Space is a performing arts centre based in a converted church on the Isle of Dogs, East London and managed by St Paul's Arts Trust, and is fast becoming one of the most exciting fringe venues in London "continually providing a launch pad for new talent" (Spy in the stalls, 2018) programming "incredibly ambitious and interesting new work" (Theatre Box Blog, 2018).
Its patron is Sir Ian McKellen.
The Space programmes over 200 performances a year incorporating an exciting mixture of classics, revivals and new writing from new, emerging and established artists.
Its community theatre project, SpaceWorks, provides workshops and performance opportunities for local adults.
In 2015 The Space was asked to manage the Roof Garden performance space in Crossrail Place, Canary Wharf.
This intimate covered amphitheatre in beautiful surroundings is programmed from May to August providing free performances and workshops to the local community.
