The Troubadour team has extensive experience of running spectacular spaces including the King’s Cross Theatre, home of David Bowie’s musical Lazarus, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights, the Donmar’s Shakespeare Trilogy and The Railway Children.
Troubadour specialises in the creation of temporary and semi-permanent theatres – utilising spaces which would otherwise be empty, derelict or unused. Our venues become go-to destinations that are fully flexible, contemporary and offer a greater audience experience.
We have been creating, designing, building and running flexible venues across the world for nearly ten years. Troubadour’s ambition is to transform local neighbourhoods into vibrant cultural hubs, creating modern, sociable spaces which showcase the best of theatre and offer audiences a great night out.
Dynamic and exciting new venues have been created by the team behind Troubadour Theatres in Camden, Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster, in tented and semi-permanent structures, abandoned buildings and The Royal Parks.
We are committed to creating venues that operate efficiently and in an environmentally sustainable way and to establishing sustained and meaningful partnerships with local businesses and residents. The Troubadour Trust, an independent community interest company, works with schools, the local community and wider city.
Our team have successfully built and operated over 8 commercial theatres since 2009 including:
The King’s Cross Theatre which ran for 2.5 years from 2014 - 2017, consisting of one 450 seat studio and two 1,000 seat theatres housing Lazarus: the David Bowie Musical directed by Ivo van Hove; Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Olivier Award winning In The Heights; the Donmar Warehouse’s critically acclaimed all-female Shakespeare Trilogy directed by Phyllida Lloyd; and the Olivier Award winning The Railway Children, featuring a 60 tonne steam engine that chugged into the auditorium every night.
The Three Sixty Theatre, a bespoke, 1,500-seat purpose-built tent in Kensington Gardens, which housed a £2 million production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
A pop-up 1,000-seat theatre in 2010 and 2011 to house the Olivier Award winning production of The Railway Children on the former Eurostar platform at Waterloo Station and at The Roundhouse Park in Toronto.
A bespoke, 1,000-seat purpose-built tent in Kensington Gardens and at the O2 Arena in 2009 for Three Sixty’s ground-breaking production of Peter Pan.
Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, where we are converting Fountain Studios into a fully flexible theatre with 1,000 up to 1,500 seats.
Troubadour White City Theatre, where we are building two fully flexible spaces with 800 and 1,200 seats.
