Iris Theatre’s Summer Festival | Aug 14 - Aug 29

Welcome to Iris Theatre

Iris Theatre is an award-winning theatre company and charity based in the heart of London’s Theatreland. Created in 2007, we provide transformational opportunities for young and emerging artists and audiences alike in a creative environment welcome to everyone.

Over the past decade Iris has built a reputation for innovative site-specific theatre with mass appeal. The cornerstone of our year is our summer promenade performances in the grounds and buildings of the Actors’ Church in Covent Garden. Our ten week summer season generally consists of a Shakespeare play followed by a classic family story, where we produce a fresh and vibrant repertoire of varied work, providing audiences with affordable and accessible theatre.

Throughout the year, Iris supports young artists through a variety of development schemes.

NEWS – Iris Theatre’s Summer Festival – On Sale Now!

Iris theatre’s Summer Festival will be an outdoor celebration of live performance, bringing together some of the most exciting break-out artists and companies, sharing an eclectic mixture of events running from the 14th-29th August. Book your Bubble Bench and join us in the heart of Covent Garden for a socially-distanced sharing of music, theatre and new work.

Specifically tailored for a socially-distanced audience, all reservations are per Bubble Bench rather than individual tickets. Each Bubble Bench can accommodate up to two adults.

We are so excited to be hosting an incredible bunch of artists and companies and we hope you will all join us to share their exceptional work. 

We look forward to welcoming you all back to the gardens of The Actors Church, and although we may be apart in distance, we will be together in celebration!
