Performance Spaces

Half Moon offers two fully accessible performance spaces for theatre, dance or music in East London. Our main theatre space for up to 90 people is a black box, fully equipped studio theatre. This offers a space for an audience of up to 90, with raked seating and benches. This space is only available for public performances of work aimed at young people (professional productions or youth performances) as part of our regular programmed season but it can be hired for private sessions such as auditions or workshops or non-ticketed community events. To be considered for our artistic programme please get in touch.

Our smaller Upper Studio space is suitable for intimate private scratch performances of theatre for young people or events that are non-ticketed and can accommodate up to 35 people.

Half Moon is a fully accessible venue so suitable for all artists / companies. For more details about both of these performance spaces, see below.
