About
Park Theatre is the brainchild of Artistic Director, Jez Bond, and Creative Director, Melli Marie, who – following a six year London-wide search for a building – discovered a vacant office block next to Finsbury Park station in 2010. Garnering support from the theatre community at large – including luminaries such as Ian McKellen and Alan Rickman, the press and, importantly, local residents – they set out to raise the necessary funds to convert the tired concrete building into a thriving new theatre and beacon for the community. At a cost of just £2.6 million, the building, designed by David Hughes Architects, opened in May 2013 to rave reviews from the critics.

Going to London? We recommend checking what's on at Park Theatre, a small, intimate and vibrant fringe/neighbourhood theatre with a very rich repertoire to suit us all. 3 minutes walk from Finsbury Tube statiion, we have enjoyed their plays once last year and twice now in 2020. Prices that cannot compete with West End (much lower...) and you get your money's worth.
We saw "Shackleton and his Stowaway" and Rags. Excellent!

We travelled from Ireland to see a show which had been highly recommended. We were not disappointed the show was epic. The theater was lovely, great staff and a well stocked bar. The only issue was the lack of Bar staff in order to serve the patrons seeking a drink before and midway through the performance. I will be back again for another performance soon...

Lovely intimate theatre 2 stops from Euston on underground what a gem
Saw le cage aux follies brilliantly funny such polished performances in a lovely quirky theatre. many restaurants nearby plus cafe on site. Thought Prosecco was a bit expensive but my friend bought them I don’t think I would have. But pizza I had for lunch was great. Will definitely keep eyes open for something else there.

I was in north London for just one full day, primarily to see the astounding Charlotte Salomon exhibition at The Jewish Museum in Camden Town. I stayed at the Travelodge in Finsbury Park....very convenient when there’s no need to go in to central London.....and , to make the fullest use of the time, I looked for things to do in the immediate vicinity. On my arrival night these were enjoyable visits to both Happening Bagels and the Faltering Fullback pub.
For the second night, I found out about the Park Theatre and booked to see the musical ‘Rags’ and for pre-show pizza in the theatre’s café-bar. I had a lovely evening. The food was fine and well priced and the café environment was fun and relaxed.
I really enjoyed the show. In the second half the message perhaps got just a little pushed and over sentimental. Overall, though, I thought all aspects were excellent; the story, the staging, the acting and singing, the music and the lighting. Being so close to the performance was brilliant and the audience played their part, clearly appreciating the narrative, references and humour.
I was impressed by all the staff I came across at the theatre, actors, front of house staff and catering staff.
Well done for providing such a nice venue and staging such a good production.
I feel like I haven’t been to London but, better still, have enjoyed a short break in Finsbury Park plus my bus trip to Camden Town!

We saw Time and Tide last night in Park 90, the smaller of the two theatres. Seating is on three sides of a floor level stage. A fantastic venue with two bar areas, and the play was funny, powerful and intimate. The four characters were brilliantly portrayed. We will definitely be returning...

We’re so lucky to live near the Park Theatre and have never seen a duff show yet... the last one we saw, the musical Rags, was absolutely superb. I’m always amazed at the inventiveness and quality of the shows in such a small venue. It’s a real treasure.

Saw La Cage au Folles at the Park this weekend. What a brilliant little theatre. 200 seats in the main theatre and 90 in the other. You feel part of the action and sometimes actually are! Two bars so no queueing for a drink or ice cream tub at half time. Food is available too.

Loved 'The last temptation of Boris JOHNSON' - definitely not to be missed. Our first visit to this theatre and won't be the last. Very close to the action wherever you are seated. We attended the matinee and was surprised the bar was closed - too early for some perhaps! Highly recommend both the play and the theatre.

I visited The Park Theatre for the first time to see Intra Muros {a superb production, thought provoking and well worth seeing, with excellent acting, sound and music} and what a gem this theatre is.

Shabby chic decor with comfy sofa's and chairs, exposed brick and really hip vibe, everything is of the highest quality {The Young Vic could learn a thing or two from this venue on how shabby chic is done well}.

There were two bar and eatery area's I noticed on the ground floor and the first floor so it's a great place for people to meet before and after shows.

The stage was central with the audience on three sides. My seat was B17 so perfect for me and even though I don't like the long seats with numbers {as larger or less considerate patrons require armrest to grid out whose seat is whose} I could not complain at all. I had ample room for my bag and water bottle by my feet and there was room underneath it too.

The ladies toilets I visited on the top floor and lower ground were clean, modern and efficient and though I hate the smell of bleach, at least I knew they were cleaned regularly.

Finsbury Park Station {Victoria & Piccadilly Lines} is the closest station.If you exit via the main entrance, facing some bus stops, turn left which will see you walking under all the over ground train lines, the next left takes you into the bus depot,walk into that and your first right is Clifton Terrace. You can see PARK in bold letters in the near distance on the opposite side of the street and you're there. It's less than a 4 minute walk from the station so is as easy as anything.

A really great venue, I'll be back for more innovate productions very soon.
