A Bit About Us

Barons Court Theatre is run by Artistic Director Sharon Willems and Executive Director Leo Bacica.

In November 2021, Kibo Productions became the managing company of Barons Court Theatre.

We were awarded the 2023 Offies People's Vote Award for Most Welcoming Venue in February 2023.

Barons Court Theatre has a focus on supporting emerging and early career artists, many of whom have come to the industry in non-traditional ways and who have limited networks in the UK.

We regularly run events to support local artists, including our monthly scratch night, The Sunday Fix, which provides access to more established theatre makers in an informal, non-competitive environment to dismantle barriers to careers in the arts.

Local artists have featured in multiple productions already in our tenure, and we are committed to featuring local talent whenever possible.

In the first year of programming the space, Sharon and Leo have welcomed multiple debut writers, maintained gender parity on stage and become a home for Ukrainian theatre artists displaced and living in London.

We love plays in translation, plays that challenge our expectations, and plays that are unapologetically theatrical.

The Barons Court Theatre is a 52-seater studio in the heart of West London, between Hammersmith and Chelsea. Situated in the basement of the Curtains Up Pub, a stone's throw from Queen's Club. Barons Court has been running since 1991, offering a variety of new writing, classical work and magic shows under the previous artistic directorship of Ron Phillips and Christian Deal.


We deeply regret that the theatre is not easily accessible to everyone. There is a flight of stairs down to the space, a step up to the door, a step down into the space, and a step up and down into the house left seating bank. If you have access requirements, please email to discuss your visit.

Covid-19 Policy

Although most restrictions are now lifted, we recognize the danger this virus still poses.

We will keep complying with the government guidance and go beyond it where we feel necessary.

Guests are invited to use their discretion as to wearing masks in the theatre.
