About Theatre Utopia

Theatre Utopia is now the last independent theatre left in Croydon.

Offering a box office split for shows, the aim of Utopia is to encourage new writing and work, as well as be the space for Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe previews.

An intimate studio theatre, it can seat up to 80 audience and was part crowd funded.

The space is very versatile and can be used from theatre, to dance, comedy and film nights and everything in-between.

The venue also hosts a wide range of classes, from all kinds of dance, yoga, hoopla and more.

It is also available for private hire events, from rehearsals to classes and other various events, and only costs £12 an hour.

Matthews Yard is an arts, cultural and community hub in the centre of Croydon with a fully licensed cafe, a workspace for early stage start-ups, a gallery showcasing the work of local artists and a studio theatre offering an intimate space with a varied schedule encompassing theatre, film, comedy, live music and community events.
