Broadway Barking History

The Broadway was originally the Barking Assembly Hall, designed in the 1930's as part of the Town hall and completed in 1962. It was used sporadically for a variety of events from ballet to boxing. The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham recognised the need for a high quality performance venue in the borough. It joined forces with Barking & Dagenham College to redevelop the hall into the Broadway a professional theatre and a home for the college's highly successful department of performing arts.

The venue was modernised and redesigned by Tim Foster Architects and reopened in September 2004. The theatre includes a glass façade and foyer space, an auditorium with flexible seating, with a capacity of 341, which can be extended to 850 for a standing event.

The venue is managed by an independent trust, with registered charitable status and is the flagship cultural building in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and surrounding areas.
