Arts Theatre

Hide Profile

The Arts Theatre opened in 1927 and operated as an eating and drinking club, thus deliberately falling outside the censorship restrictions. It put on notable productions and ground-breaking works, as well as playing host to foreign companies.

In the early 1960s the Royal Shakespeare Company resided at the theatre with a daring experimental season of plays. In 1967 the Arts Theatre became home to Caryl Jenner's Unicorn Theatre for Children, providing 8 shows a year of its own devising and letting to other foreign children's companies as well.
