We’re taking part in Open House – Open City London 2017, the capital’s largest architectural festival. Our exuberant, Frank Matcham designed Grade II* listed auditorium is one of the best examples of Edwardian variety theatre remaining in London. So come and take a look this September as hundreds of great buildings open up their doors to all.
The 2004 refurbishment of Hackney Empire fully restored the interiors, topping it off with the sign ‘Hackney Empire’ in massive terracotta 6.4m tall capital letters.
Hackney Empire is a working theatre, so access will be limited to Foyer Area, Dress & Upper Circle for this Tour –as we have construction going on in the Stalls, Stage and backstage areas of the theatre.
Free – places are subject to availability & must be booked in advance. All participants on the Tour require a ticket.
We’ll be showing you around the theatre on Saturday 16 September at 9am.
The Tour will last 45 minutes and places are limited and must be booked in advance.
