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.

This seat is only £20 and sold restricted view due to a very slim pillar in the sightline, however it's not really too much of a problem as it's so narrow and you can see everything going on around it. Bargain seat, comfortable and plenty of leg room... More

The seat was fairly comfortable, but it didn't have any armrests which caused a bit of discomfort for me. Particularly as the seat was at the end of the row. There was quite a bit of leg room which was good. The view was okay but it was mostly due to... More
