Your Local Theatre with a Global Perspective
2023 OFFIE Awards winner - Most Welcoming Venue
The Barons Court exists to create memorable experiences for its audiences and local community.
We aim to be a playground for artists and stage a mixture of new writing, reimagined classics, musicals and works in translation that speak to what it means to be alive now. We're a place to incubate ideas and welcome artists from all backgrounds and levels of experience.
We are also keen to be a focal point of the community in West Kensington and go beyond our mission as a theatre to become a cultural hub for the residents of our neighbourhood. To facilitate this, we also hold scratch nights, script readings, poetry nights, courses, workshops, and events that can benefit both artists and the local community. If you have an idea for an event, we'd love to hear it.
Send us an email to get the discussion started.
Be sure to include:
Please tell us about the play or project you'd like to stage with us. If you've got collaborators and a website, great, but a brief summary is equally fine at this stage. And it's totally ok if it's just an idea at this point.
Please send over a copy of the current draft (if it is a new play) and confirmation that you have the performance rights.
Please let us know more about your preferred dates and the proposed length of run.
The Barons Court is a 52-seat theatre beneath the Curtain's Up Pub in W14.
We hire the Barons Court on a weekly basis for runs of 1 - 3 weeks. We also run alternative programming on Friday and Saturday nights after the main show and occasional one-off events.
Shows are Tues - Saturday at 7:00pm or 7:30pm. Matinees are on a case by case basis.
The hire fee is £950 per week with a 20% deposit upon booking. We take no other fees beyond the hire cost and you would keep all of the income from ticket sales.
Your additional expenses would include things like marketing materials, a technician to operate your show, and your production's running costs.
If you have an idea but don't have funding in place, get in touch, and we'll chat through your options.
