Following an Arts Council England research grant, in 2014 we begun plans to convert a 4,000sqft former print works into a theatre, testing the space out with leading companies including LIFT, Complicite and Paines Plough. In March 2015 we opened Hackney Showroom – a large warehouse/performance space with an exceptional cultural offer: to present and produce outstanding theatre, work with leading artists and organisations and create an inclusive, vibrant and accessible community building.

Our vision is to create a leading theatre producing new work by the very best theatre makers, and for our building to be a meeting point where people from different communities come together to be inspired, uplifted and emboldened by great art.

To achieve our vision we are commissioning new work, working in partnership with some the UK’s finest artists and companies, and at the same time placing ourselves at the heart of our diverse community, making authentic, long lasting connections with local audiences.

Based at East London’s largest creative hub, Hackney Downs Studios, Hackney Showroom has been designed by award-winning architects Citizens Design Bureau and is home to a large warehouse theatre, a studio theatre/rehearsal space, a bar and dressing rooms.

Hackney Showroom is run by New Future Collective, a charity which places itself at the heart of urban and suburban communities, developing people’s creative capacity and enriching their cultural lives through creative and cult
