Rehearsal Space


The Cervantes Theatre Auditorium is ideal for rehearsal space. Situated just 3 minutes walk from Southwark tube station, it is convenient to get to and is a space that works for up to 15 people to rehearse in.

The space features a floor area of roughly 25m squared  and as it is the main auditorium there is also plenty of seating space over and above this for people to rest/watch. The gallery of photos below shows the space in more detail:
