Venue overview

The Almeida is an intimate theatre, with a capacity of 325. Located in Islington, the theatre attracts high calibre productions, with shows regularly transferring to the West End.

Dating back to 1837, the venue first became a theatre in 1980, after a campaign led by acclaimed director Pierre Audi, who later became the Almeida’s first Artistic Director. Beginning as a house for fringe theatre, the theatre is now a prolific producing house with an international reputation, staging old and new work by major playwrights.

Following the 2001-3 refurbishment, the Almeida combines original 19th century features with the comfort of modern amenities. A curved back wall allows for a vast stage and for audiences to feel close to the action.

Seating is divided into two sections, with Stalls at ground level and the Circle above. Pillars and side-angle seats are dotted throughout the auditorium and seats affected by these can be bought at a lower price. Legroom is good throughout the theatre, with seating compromising comfortable modern benches.

Good value seats

For those that don’t mind leaning, then a number of pillars and side-angled seats provide great value, considering the price of the tickets. It depends on the show, but generally the restricted view seats in the Stalls are better than those in the Circle. Alternatively, sit towards the rear of either section for an overall clear view of the stage at a discount price!

Premium seats

The best seats in the house are the centre Stalls and central section of the Circle.

Considering this is a restricted view seat, it is fantastic value for money for the view you get. There is a pillar in your way but it hardly impedes at all and you are very close to the stage. Leg room is fairly good and the seat is comfortable. More

A clear view of the stage although you are at a slight angle. The very front right corner is blocked by the safety rail but nothing happened even close to there. Leg room is very limited although being on a corner there was a little space to put my bag... More

This seat is the third row for the production, and also on the end of the row. This row is also on the same level as the rows in-front, so there is no rake between you and the people in-front, and the stage is fairly high. Because of this, along with... More
