Little Angel Theatre

Description

Little Angel Theatre is ‘the Home of British Puppetry’ and one of only three building-based puppet theatres in England. Established in 1961, the Islington-based theatre is the centre of the company’s activities. The 100 seat theatre stands side-by-side with the workshop, where all new productions and puppets are developed, carved and constructed.

LAT is dedicated to the celebration and development of puppetry and live animation in all its diverse forms. LAT has a lively and imaginative Education Programme working with schools, youth and community groups, particularly in Islington and the surrounding boroughs. It also runs participation activities such as the Saturday Puppet Club, Crafty Kids Club and Youth Theatre, and regular Kids Fun Days and holiday clubs.

The Albany

Description

Based in the heart of Deptford, the Albany is a performing arts centre with a history stretching back to the nineteenth century. Over the last few years, we have emerged as a new type of arts venue, very much driven by the cultural diversity and creative mix of South East London. Involving people, through participation and partnerships, is central to our work and is essential to the delivery of our vision.

During the last year over 180,000 people visited the Albany and used our facilities, including audiences of over 40,000 for more than 400 events. The Albany has four performance spaces, including its unique central performance space, with a capacity of 300 seated and 500 for standing events. Our programme encompasses a range of music, theatre and spoken word, as well as an array of participatory projects. Our other facilities include a café bar, rehearsal and meeting rooms for hire, and office space.

The Albany is re-establishing itself as a significant London arts venue, building on our reputation as a home and seeding ground for creative development in the performing arts. We are a social enterprise, earning over 50% of our own income and we are grateful for the support of the London Borough of Lewisham and Arts Council England.

The Albany is proud to be an ecovenue, endeavouring to continually improve our performance and minimise the impact of our activities on the environment.
