Barbican Centre

Silk St, London EC2Y 8DS, UK – 020 7638 4141

One of London’s quirkier venues, a bizarre architectural project that realistically should not work but does, few places are quite like this. A mix of shows, theatre, exhibitions, cinema and quirky stores. Sit back and soak up this 60s architectural vibe, with its prominence of red tones, from lighting to floor. Sit inside and chill, or step outside and watch the water feature. Fancy something different pop into the garden area inside one of the building, see the plants and visit the terrapins. Great exhibition space, lovely teams of people, extraordinary exclusive film performances, especially of movies that have gone off the grid.

Great venue for a concert or event. The architecture of the building is also unique and interesting. The cafe/restaurant is enjoyable on a warm day when you can sit out. The building is free to the public and you can use it to study etc. Not worth visiting as a tourist site on its own but if something is on here it will be a great opportunity to visit a historic building.

Brady Arts & Community Centre

New Town, 5HU, 192-196 Hanbury St, Mile End, London E1 5HU, UK – 020 7364 7900

A good community centre with so much going on. Has it's own theatre, huge hall & conference room & cafe. If you are looking for rehearsal place or similar, this place is well worth looking into....easy access to West End etc., All info at reception or via website.

Its a good place to see plays. Even thought the audience seating area can be a bit small. Nice place.

National Centre for Circus Arts

Coronet St, London N1 6HD, UK – 020 7613 4141

Really talented and supportive teachers, beautiful facility

Fact: At Circus Space wonderful things happen. Open since the early 1990s in what used to be a derelict electric light station, exceptionally talented students train for their degree in Circus Arts. Luckily the prestigious school has also found ways to let the public join in the fun, which is why TSL suggest signing up to an acrobatic or aerial course to replace the gym membership... To find more unique and independent places why not visit the Twenty Something London website!

Shoreditch Town Hall

380 Old St, London EC1V 9LT, UK – 020 7739 6176

Good venue for the type of immersive & promenade productions it puts on. Limited access to toilet facilities depending on where in the building your production is. Check on location if disabled access is required. There is a lift up the main external steps to the front entrance and, if you ask, you can get step free access to other parts of the venue. Friendly and helpful staff.

Wow the main room is awesome with a wooden dancing floor and decor is a bit baroque.
