Future Arcola Open Day

On Saturday 2 October, Arcola Theatre will be holding an open day to showcase its plans for its new premises, as part of the Story of London festival.

The free drop-in event will take place 4pm-10pm at the theatre’s future site on 24 Ashwin Street in Dalston.

The Arcola, which celebrates its 10th birthday in December, will be moving to its new home near Dalston Junction in the new year.  The Future Arcola Open Day will be an afternoon of exploration, discussion, refreshments and entertainment.~

Participants are invited to take an exclusive look at the building in its raw state, see and influence emerging plans, meet with the Future Arcola Project Team and find out how you can get involved in their radical DIY approach to creating a new cultural landmark.

The open day is also an opportunity to learn about Dalston’s incredible cultural legacy including the Labyrinth/Four Aces Club – host to Jimi Hendrix and The Prodigy. Inspirational thinkers will share their ideas on London’s future and how innovative companies like Arcola can contribute to a sustainable future.

Producing some of the most critically acclaimed, diverse and challenging work for the London stage, Arcola is also driving sustainability in the arts, developing and retailing cutting-edge low carbon products. This is your chance to find out more: discover what Arcola does, how they do it and why.

Arcola Theatre is grateful to UBS for sponsoring this event.
