About: Over the years the Arcola Theatre in Dalston has worked with some very well-respected names: author Eric Schlosser, playwright Bonnie Greer and poet Frank McGuinness are just a few of them. Their programming, which gives opportunities to new writers as well as showcasing renowned works, coupled with the fact that the building is ecologically sustainable (they’ve installed hydrogen-powered lights, solar panels, and used recycled building materials with the aim of becoming the world’s first carbon neutral theatre) has led to heaps of praise from national media.

The Arcola has two intimate auditoriums seating 180 and 80 people, plus a big top tent a few doors down the road that is used in the summer months.
