Ovalhouse Theatre


Ovalhouse is a lively theatre and arts centre on the Kennington Oval, opposite the famous cricket ground.  For the past 50 years, Ovalhouse has been part of the London fringe, providing development and performance space to experimental, radical and overlooked artists. Today Ovalhouse is known for theatre, performance and participation that speaks to a world beyond the mainstream. Ovalhouse is a leader in its field for organisations involved in creative participatory work with children and young people, and continues to be a vital home for boundary-pushing art, artists and audiences with an eye on the future.

They are open Monday – Saturday and provide a warm welcome to our audience members, practitioners, patrons and workshop members.

  • Theatre performances in our two theatres run Tuesday- Saturday (check website for What’s On)
  • During the weekdays the spaces are open for rehearsals and hires from 10am.
  • The youth classes operate Monday – Saturday during term times, plus weekend and school holiday projects: check the website for Under 26 activities.

We are London project.  This is a new drama project for young people aged 14 to 22 who are new migrants to the UK and speak English as an additional language.
