About artsdepot

artsdepot is a vibrant arts centre in North Finchley in the London Borough of Barnet which has been open since October 2004. Each season it puts on an action-packed programme of creative events across the spectrum of theatre, music, dance, comedy, words, visual art and children's activities in its two theatres (the 400 seat Pentland and the 150 seat Studio), as well as the gallery, café, foyer, and education spaces. It also runs a range of inspirational educational and outreach projects throughout the borough and north London.

artsdepot works with some of the most exciting visiting companies and artists around to showcase a range of theatre styles from popular West End transfers to experimental and contemporary drama, profiling the work of new and emerging artists at events such as the depot untapped festival. artsdepot has worked with companies including Scarlet, Graeae, Kali, Tara Arts, Half Moon, The Reduced Shakespeare Company, Tamasha, Kazzum, Pilot and many more. There are regular shows for children and their families on most Sundays and during half term with companies like Tam Tam, Little Angel, Obelon Arts and Tall Stories. Children's performances feature everything from puppets to live stand-up comedy especially for kids. Each year artsdepot produces its own Christmas show. In 2006 artsdepot is excited to be working with Pilot Theatre to present The Twits by Roald Dahl.

artsdepot also has regular comedy nights with stars such as Gina Yashere, Lucy Porter, Mark Thomas, John Hegley and Felix Dexter and Jongleurs artists.

There are dance and music events, from jazz to world to classical, with artists such as Shobana Jeyasingh, Henri Oguike, Sakoba, Union Dance, Jon Bonfiglio, Jazz Jamaica, Yasmin Levy, Eduardo Niebla, English Touring Opera, Pegasus Opera, Cara Dillon and Martin Simpson.

Recent word events have featured Arnold Wesker, Roger McGough, Toyah Wilcox and Alexei Sayle.

There are spaces for wheelchairs in both of the theatres, though it is advisable to book tickets in advance. Assistance dogs for visitors with visual or hearing difficulties are permitted in the theatres – mention this to the box office staff when booking so that they can offer you an aisle seat and inform you of any special effects that might affect your dog.
