Theatre N16 closed its doors in Balham at the end of 2017, only to announce that it will open them in 2018 at Styx, the Tottenham Hale performance space.

Theatre N16 are delighted to announce the partnership between themselves and the Tottenham Hale based performance space and bar Styx. Already a hive of live events, Theatre N16 will take over all the production and programming of theatrical based endeavours in the north London warehouse for 2018 from March.

Theatre N16 Styx

Theatre producer and founder of Theatre N16, Jamie Eastlake, comments:

“We are ecstatic to move into an even more exciting space for the next twelve months and continue with our ethos of allowing theatre companies to produce work with the lowest overheads around on the London fringe”.

Styx has been an integral host to club and live music events in North London over the years and has played theatrical host to productions from The Royal Court and Soho Theatre, to name a few. Situated seconds from Tottenham Hale tube station (Victoria line), Styx‘s theatrical acumen was cemented in 2017 when it won two Off West End awards (Lynette Clarke as Best Supporting Female and Shawn Soh as Best Costume Designer) gleaned a further nomination (Best Production) for Karagula.

The Bedford, previous venue for Theatre N16

Theatre N16 will continue a host of its successful programmes, including new writing event Theatre N16 presents and its First Credit scheme, which gives actors their first paid professional outings. The programmes have seen actors move onto West End productions after starting out on the N16 stage.

The theatre will now be accepting applications for programming – inviting previous companies back, new companies to mount first productions and anyone with an idea but who has felt priced out by other fringe models.

Details on how to apply can be found on social media and the theatre’s website.

A gala and farewell to the Balham venue will take place in the Bedford pub on Sunday 18 February 2018 – doors open at 5pm with all invited.
