Theatre Utopia at Matthews Yard History

Matthews Yard was started in response to the Croydon Riots by local entrepreneur Saif Bonar, who wanted to see a place that would bring the local community together under one roof, to set about transforming Croydon from the inside out. Initially Matthews Yard provided a workspace for local creatives, quickly expanding to a cafe and a bar with regular live entertainment.

In late 2012, a successful Kickstarter campaign raised the funds needed to turn unused space at the back of the premises into a studio theatre. Since then, Matthews Yard has played host to art exhibitions, gigs, film festivals, comedy and vibrant new theatre.

Matthews Yard is a unique venue in the heart of Croydon's Old Town. It combines a cafe, bar, workspace, and theatre space under one roof. It has been right at the heart of an explosion of art and culture, in one of London's most artistically neglected boroughs.
