artsdepot is an award winning cultural hub in Finchley, North London. Our venue incorporates a 395 seat theatre, 148 seat studio theatre, gallery, café, bar, studios, and architecturally stunning public spaces.

We have been celebrating the arts since we opened in 2004. Every year, we welcome over 100,000 people who come to watch, learn or be inspired. With our vibrant programme of performances and exhibitions, we seek to surprise and thrill audiences of all ages.

In the financial year 2013 – 14 we received £300k of public funding from the Arts Council. We worked with 456 artists, presented 342 events and 113 productions and supported 17 commissions and 6 residencies. As well as presenting work, encouraging artistic innovation and supporting artist development, we also engaged with people of all ages through our extensive participation programme. 9,000 children and young people took part in creative learning and performance opportunities at artsdepot in 2013 -14.

We offered 30 free events and had an average ticket price of just £10.52 making artsdepot affordable and accessible.

Of the £300k grant artsdepot pays £240K back to the public purse in taxes. Together with London Studio Centre our economic impact is estimated to be £9m.
