The Kiln Theatre (formerly The Tricycle Theatre)
Bringing unheard voices into the mainstream
One of London’s most respected and loved theatres, the Kiln Theatre is located in the heart of Kilburn, North London. This theatre has an outstanding reputation for presenting plays that reflect the cultural diversity of its community, in particular by Black, Irish, Jewish, Asian and South African writers. The kiln Theatre is also known for responding to contemporary issues and events with its ground-breaking plays and political work.
The Theatre opened in a converted Forester's Hall in 1980 as the permanent home of the Wakefield Tricycle Company, a touring theatre company known for producing British premieres, new writing, children's shows and theatre for the community in London and southeast England.
Education and community activities are an integral part of the artistic output of the Kiln theatre. Last year more than 46,000 young people came to see films and plays, or to participate in workshops.
The Theatres home in the lively London borough of Brent comprises a theatre, cinema, art gallery, café and bar, and open all year round.
