About us

Our Story

We launched the new venue based within the 125 Year old Leyton Great Hall on Thursday 2nd September 2021. Our aim is to create a unique and exciting place of entertainment here in the East End of London. We have been very generously supported by the Arts Council of Great Britain with it’s Culture Recovery Grant which has enabled us to program up a very varied programme of Musical Theatre shows, Plays, West End Star Cabarets, Film Nights, Award Ceremonies, Immersive Theatre and Concerts. These performances throughout our year long programme are a celebration of bringing back Leyton Great Hall as a place of Entertainment through our Cabaret Theatre Space. Please come back and check the website as we update new shows throughout the year and look out for our full brochure for a comprehensive list of the upcoming shows.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to the venue where you will be greeted by our friendly and attentive staff with full table service drinks and refreshments when available.
