Facilities for hire

All these facilities make Edric Theatre an ideal location for music, dance and theatre performances by professional artists including Fridge Festival and West End Show rehearsals. When rehearsing for The Southwark Mysteries, renowned playwright and LSBU Honorary Graduate, John Constable, commented on the Edric Theatre:

“It provided a vital resource for our large community cast rehearsals. In keeping with the South Bank’s reputation for world-class performing arts, the Edric Theatre provides a contemporary performance space and a theatre that’s first-rate. Whether it is hosting live music, contemporary dance, film or drama, the venue is set to become a regular in the rehearsal or performance circuit for local and national acts. It’s also the place to catch the latest urban productions to come out of LSBU.”
