About Poplar Union

Poplar Union is a multidisciplinary arts & community venue in East London, situated between the Limehouse Cut Canal and Bartlett Park.

Since opening our doors in 2017, we have been committed to providing a communal, social and creative space accessible to all. Our goal is to create a real destination for the community through our diverse programme of events, spanning theatre, comedy, spoken word, music, dance, health and wellbeing, and family activities.

Poplar Union has two main event spaces named after local community heroes; Betty, our studio and performance space, and Mike, our meeting room. Betty is equipped with a sprung maple floor, state-of-the-art AV system, black stage curtains, and floor to ceiling glass doors, offering a view of the park and maximising natural light in the space.

Although only open for 2 years, we have already begun to make our mark as a cultural destination for Poplar.

Press about Poplar Union

‘Poplar Union is a thriving arts hub, which in addition to its ticketed cultural events puts on free screenings of old, new and arthouse films; and its popular Scartch Crackle & POP seasonal scratch nights showcase performances and works-in-progress by up-and-coming new writers, performance and poets.’ – Condé Nast Traveler, 2018

‘…Poplar Union, a community arts centre that opened in 2017 and in just over a year established itself as the beating heart of Poplar and a much-needed hub for creativity in the area.’ – London Calling, 2018
