About Us



Theatre Peckham is a flagship cultural venue and a pioneering Learning Theatre, where inspirational artists meet aspirational young people. We are home to world class creative learning and performance, with, by and for young people, providing a talent pipeline into the creative industries.

Founded over 30 years ago, Theatre Peckham provides a safe space for children to explore, take risks and negotiate their way in a changing world. At our South London home, we welcome young people from all backgrounds to study performance out of school – with a goal to improving self-esteem, raising ambition and giving all children access to the arts.

The Theatre Peckham Academy offers 30 different classes a week – including Acting, Singing, Musical Theatre, Ballet, Tap, Music Production, Writing and Street Dance, for children aged 3–25 years, with over 350 young people attending a workshop every week. At the heart of Theatre Peckham’s success is its commitment to diversity and inclusivity.


We are a two-time Offie-nominated theatre (Extremism, Nov 2019).

We platform cutting edge productions in our state of the art, 200-seat theatre and studios, that push the boundaries of form, use exciting ways to retell existing or imagine new stories, and engage with audiences beyond the performer-spectator relationship.

By showcasing new talent and raising the awareness of different forms of theatre, Theatre Peckham aims to develop an exciting and diverse new programme, encouraging new audiences to place theatre at the heart of their community.
