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, but all participants must be over the age of 18. Please note that classes, clubs and society meetings are not permitted.
To help make keep our spaces safe, we require all rehearsals to maintain physical distancing measures. We are also offering our changing rooms and shower facilities on request only.
