This is a list of key venues who were actively involved in receiving alternative theatre companies to their stages and spaces, commissioning or initiating work, or hosting long-term residencies. We will be creating individual pages for each venue. Please contact us if you know of any other venues you believe should be included.

In the meantime selected venues in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Camden can be found on the map created by Sam Nightingale in 2013 attached to this history/venues drop-down Menu. We hope to update this resource in the future so please email us any further information, links or images we should include.
