About the The Yard Theatre

The Yard Theatre is a space to explore new ideas, to nurture new talent and to share new experiences.

The Yard is a multi-award winning theatre venue located just minutes from the Olympic Stadium in London's Hackney Wick. The Yard was conceived by Jay Miller, and designed and built by Practice Architecture in collaboration with Christopher Daniel.

They converted a dormant warehouse in Queen's Yard, Hackney Wick, splitting it into two sections - one housing the theatre, and the other the bar, in which the back 'bowl' of the seating rake is fully visible. Made with recycled and reclaimed material, the theatre seats 110 in a fully raked amphitheatre. The stage is large, with four performer entrances and exits. There is a beauty in the collision between Greek and Elizabethan architecture and its juxtaposition in an industrial warehouse space where the concrete floor and corrugated roof are clearly visible.

Buggy Baby

My name is Aya. I'm eight months old and I live in a buggy. I share a room with my mum, Nur, and a strange man named Jaden. They didn't always live here. They needed to escape another country and they've ended up in a rotting room in East London.

The Act

A New and Better You

You self sabotage. You're always on your phone. You procrastinate. Your bathroom has mould on the shower. You don't exercise regularly. You don't eat your recommended five a day. But it's not too late - it's never too late!
