Our Venue

Hidden away in a historic Grade II listed building in the heart of Central London, the BBC's Radio Theatre is an intimate performance venue with grand decor. It first opened its doors in 1934, originally as a sound studio. Today, this iconic art deco setting hosts daily concerts, variety shows and comedy acts for TV and radio in front of a live audience. The Theatre is also equipped with a bar and cafe, which overlooks the notable panoramic BBC newsroom.

The BBC Arabic Festival is the first, and only, film festival that takes places here.
