Harlow is one of the most economically productive and fastest-growing places in the UK. Arts and Culture is significant in Harlow’s history, today and in the future.

We provide a programme of quality wide-ranging work across our 400-seat and 120-seat theatres, as well as other reach-out locations, and provide space and support to many artists, groups, and companies throughout the year in our three dynamic studio spaces.

Our Café and Bar provide a welcoming atmosphere for you to come and be part of the community using our spaces to work, learn or simply enjoy.

Our mission at Harlow Playhouse is to create a vibrant, wide ranging programme; work with a social conscience, healthy living, positive wellbeing, and provide a platform for participation in the arts. As a leading cultural hub Harlow Playhouse continues to commission, produce, co-produce, seed-fund and support a number of artists.
