New Diorama Theatre is an 80 seat theatre based just off Regent’s Park in the heart of central London. Unique in the capital for our development and support of emerging and established theatre companies, In the five years since we opened we have welcomed over 100,000 audience members to theatre productions, readings and other events.
Soon after opening, New Diorama was recognised as a “must visit destination for London theatre-goers” (Time Out) and awarded two consecutive prestigious Peter Brook Awards for the first two years of our programming. In 2016 we were delighted to be awarded the Peter Brook Empty Space Award, and in 2017 were named Fringe Theatre of The Year at The Stage Awards. Productions created for and with New Diorama Theatre have transferred to festivals, and countless venues around the country and internationally.
As well as supporting and developing high-quality theatre, New Diorama Theatre works extensively with our local community, creating projects, workshops and productions as well as ensuring the theatre space is somewhere our neighbours can come and be creative themselves.
