Theatre facilities

On our Theatre courses and you’ll be exposed to purpose-built facilities which will enhance your learning experience and be the starting point for inspiration on or off our London campus.

Our state-of-the-art Antonin Artaud building is the home of Theatre at Brunel. In this dedicated space for theatre and creative arts students you’ll find a number of facilities to support your learning. From large performances spaces and ‘black box’ studios for group work and performance practice to quality lighting and sound equipment for productions, we’ve got it covered so you can simply focus on honing your skills.

As well as being the main hub for Theatre students you’ll also get to mix and mingle with other students across the university who share similar passions and performances, as many of our live performances and shows take place here. It also houses other creative arts subjects, you’ll find a recording studio, a live (sound-proof) music room, a radio studio, five editing suites and a multi-platform digital newsroom that you can use to support your studies.

Take a look at some of our facilities

Performance space

In the practical performance space, you’ll study, rehearse and test your skills in a professional environment with seating for up 190 audience members. With a 96-channel theatre lighting rig, a full PA system and sprung floor, you’ll have everything you need to bring your performances to life. It’s fully draped and easily converted into a black box theatre, where the focus is on you.

Rehearsal space

Students can immerse themselves in rehearsing, devising and directing. Seminars and lectures also take place in this purpose built practical room.

Edit suite

When it’s time to get down to the details of post-production, our edit suites are the perfect place to be. They provide a private workspace, fitted out with the equipment software you need to produce a great end-product. It’s here you’ll really hone your craft and practice in industry-standing editing techniques.
