Finding the ideal place to rehearse is important. You will never be able to practice for a role or perfect your craft if there are constant distractions around or the environment is not suitable. However, if you are new to London or you haven’t found a great spot, you may be at a bit of a loss. Don’t fret, as we have some great suggestions:
Located in Kings Cross and Soho, 01zero-one not only offer rehearsal space, but they have great workshop facilities as well. The rehearsal rooms are fitted with modern equipment, and they can be hired on the evenings and weekends.
The London Theatre
This venue cannot be hired on weekends, yet it is one of the best rehearsal studios in terms of value for money. It’s priced competitively at £8 per hour or £35 per day. The rehearsal space can hold 50 people. The stage area at this venue is 4 m x 3 m and it has a sprung floor.
Bell Studios has a wide range of rehearsal rooms available of different sizes. The smallest room is 2m x 2m, and the largest space is 11m x 8m. Prices start at a mere £6 per hour, yet they do increase for the better rooms. There are eight practice rooms in total, and the rehearsal studios are all fully equipped. They are also climate controlled and enjoy natural daylight.
So there you have it – some of the best rehearsal studios in London. However, if you can’t book one of these spots, or you are on a tight budget, there are plenty of other places to consider – you merely need to think a little bit outside the box. Church or civic halls or university lecture rooms may be willing to let you rehearse in a small room for free, or in exchange for a few free tickets – allowing you to save your money and still get a great place to rehearse.
