Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn, London NW6
- by CityWest Residential
Home to a wealth of iconic cultural landmarks and attractions, Kilburn is divided between three of London’s most recognisable boroughs – Camden, Brent and Westminster.
Notable attractions in the area include the Tricycle Theatre. One of the capital’s most respected theatres, this popular attraction boasts a 230 seat theatre and a 300 seat cinema, as well as a state-of-the-art rehearsal studio that attracts visitors from far and wide.
The well-known venue is also home to a visual arts studio, a host of smaller theatre spaces, a café/bar and an art gallery, making it a hub of creative and cultural activity in the heart of the community. The award winning theatre offers visitors the opportunity to utilise its wealth of facilities for both educational and social purposes, making it a popular venue among local residents.
Having undergone extensive renovation following a fire that destroyed the complex in 1987, the Tricycle has since expanded its facilities and now sits alongside a cinema building that was built in 1998.
If you have an interest in current affairs and social issues, the Tricycle has plenty to offer. The theatre regularly provides a platform for shows that respond to and challenge relatable and gripping contemporary issues. Jewish, Asian and African-Caribbean writers are behind many of the plays featured in the theatre’s extensive programme – providing new perspectives and insights into topical issues.
Above all, it is the theatre’s community focused ethos and reputation for exhibiting work that reflects cultural diversity in the area that has made the Tricycle one of London’s best loved theatres. This also helped them to secure a highly acclaimed award at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards for ‘its pioneering political work’, in November 2006.
