Hire

The recent restoration has brought this Frank Matcham designed theatre into the 21st Century with state of the art facilities. Built in 1901, it is an extraordinarily atmospheric theatre. A Grade II* listed building, the Hackney Empire has spent the last 115 years presenting the arts in all incarnations, from Charlie Chaplin, the BBC and Gilbert & Sullivan to Arcade Fire, Russell Brand and Hercule Poirot not to mention London’s No.1 pantomime.

Hugely versatile, the gilded, lofty and gorgeously atmospheric main space can take up to 1635 standing for a live music gig with stunning acoustics. There’s also a smaller, recently completed, fully featured rehearsal and event space holding up to 120 on site.
