I must admit that I have a soft spot for these quirky little theatres and I'm a real sucker for industrial chic: so what is there not to like here? Just off the bustling Dalston Kingsland High Street it's an oasis of calm (once you...More

We love attending the Arcola, a great off west end London fringe theatre that delivers quality theatre. At the interval of Terry Johnson's Insignificance there was a fire alarm that meant we will never see the second half. Still waiting for the Arcola to contact...More

First time visit to this small venue. Enjoyed a fantastic one woman act based on Syrian conflict in Kobane. Easy to find venue and great place to enjoy an IPA beer or two.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! A small intimate theatre, we were lucky to get tickets to Richard the third. I certainly do advise booking ahead. We booked over a month in advance. Not sure how lucky you would be to score tickets on the night? Tickets were...More

Perfect little hipster theatre with a good bar and nice veggie food. The theatre is small but atmospheric. Well worth searching out if you are a theatre buff looking for something different.

We always head to the Arcola for new plays and serious writing. We saw "The Plague" recently and were not disappointed. Very good production. Small theatre. Good restaurants in up and coming neighborhood. Easily accessed by bus and Overground.

... in up and coming trendy area - great small Theatre doing notable work. If you love Theatre, you won't be disappointed. Have a drink in the quaint bar before.
