Artistic work has a long history at Bishopsgate Institute, and a number of famous names have appeared here over the years.
We are proud to support the development of creative artists at all stages of their careers and offer our spaces at a discounted rate to creatives who fit our eligibility criteria. In the past, we have hosted auditions, rehearsals, and workshops.
To be eligible for our rehearsal spaces, candidates must be working on a project that will lead to a performance, even if it is still in the exploratory stage. Eligible projects include theatre, performance, orchestral, poetry, cabaret, dance, spoken word, opera, music, and comedy. Amateur and professional companies are welcome, and please speak to our team in advance if your production includes any participants under the age of 18. Please note that classes, clubs, and society meetings are not permitted.
We’ve introduced new safety protocols within the building to reduce the risk of Covid-19 and comply with the latest Government guidance. We require all hirers to provide copies of their Risk Assessments and our Event Planners will work with you to ensure your activity is Covid-compliant.

Unfortunately, we do not hire our spaces for classes, public performances, or any activity in conflict with our programme. As we are a charity, our building cannot be used to host party political or religious events.
