Jerwood Space: Renowned Rehearsal Facilities for Theatre and Dance

Jerwood Space occupies the site of the 1872 Orange Street School, which throughout the following century was used
as various educational institutions. In 1998 it was refurbished
by the Jerwood Foundation with architects Paxton Locher to provide excellent and affordable rehearsal facilities for dance and theatre companies, while the Gallery (once the school’s bike sheds) is now home to Jerwood Visual Arts. The top floors, (lost to bombing in 1940) were restored by architects Munkenbeck & Partners in 2007, providing a magnificent suite of rehearsal studios and meeting rooms.

Opened in 1998 as the first major capital initiative of the Jerwood Foundation, the Jerwood Space is now established as one of the best rehearsal spaces for theatre and dance in the UK. Young dance and theatre companies develop their work at a greatly reduced cost, working alongside established professional companies who pay competitive rates. A beautifully refurbished Victorian school (Paxton Locher Architects) also offers a contemporary art gallery, café and striking glazed courtyard (Satellite Architects); these are all open to the public and available for events.
