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.

Side view seats but since the Almeida is so small, you still get a pretty good view of everything that is going on. The stage is super low, so no need to look up or twist your head too much. Often sold at bargain prices under the Almeida’s different ... More

This seat is really comfortable. However, there is one pillar literally right in front of the seat where your left leg would be - it doesn't restrict your view but it takes up some leg space. There are also 2 other pillars right in the way of the sta... More
