Come and take a look around our atmospheric and bustling hub of creativity, right in the heart of London. Since opening in 1861, we have continued to be one of the top drama schools in the country. Situated in West London, just a stone’s throw from Hammersmith, Barons Court and West Kensington tube stations, we have meeting and rehearsal rooms and theatre spaces to suit any event. 

The doors to our new £28.2m centre for world-leading drama training opened in 2017 and has created new opportunities for both our students and for those looking for a state-of-the-art space for their event. This redevelopment has created over 50% more teaching space and three theatres - The Sainsbury Theatre, The Carne Studio Theatre and The Linbury Studio. All of our spaces are available to hire for a variety of events, performances, classes and workshops.

Community projects

We believe that the creative and performing arts should be accessible to everyone, so we work with local community projects and charities to provide reduced rates to help bring new projects from emerging artists and companies to life. If you are a Hammersmith and Fulham borough resident local to LAMDA, or a past student of LAMDA, then we may also be able to offer you a discounted rate. Please get in touch with [email protected] to find out more.

Catering options

With three on-site bars that cater all of our performance spaces, we are able to offer a variety of catering options to suit every need and budget. We also have built up a great working relationship with a range of external caterers that have assisted us in catering for our opening gala, principal’s dinner and conferences for 250 people.

LAMDA is a fully licenced venue. This means that only food and drink purchased or organised through LAMDA’s hire team can be consumed on-site. We’re able to offer sale-or-return on anything that is normally stocked at our bars, or our Venue Management team will be able to source most requests through our suppliers, so please do let us know if you have any specific requests.
