4 November - 26 February
After several quiet months at Iris HQ, we are delighted to be presenting our first ever Winter Season!
Despite the difficulties of 2020 we remain determined to not stand still and drive forward with our ambitions for making more opportunities for artists than ever before. Whether it is an original, innovative digital performance or Ivor Novello winning musicians, this season certainly offers something for everyone.
We hope that whether we are welcoming you back through our doors in person or online that you’ll be able to experience the joy and magic of live theatre together.
Most tickets are sold as Bubble Tickets that seat two people, but each event has also a limited availability of individual tickets available.
Check out the incredible programme below…

“When we get to the end of the story, you will know more than you do now”
Stories get delivered to Holly’s door and then…she tells them. Easy! Right?
Except today a new story has been delivered but it’s freezing cold, so cold in fact that Holly can’t even open the pages. She’s going to need a bit of help with this one…and that’s where you come in!
From the comfort of your home, join Holly this Christmas for a magical, snow-filled adventure, inspired by the classic fairy tale ‘The Snow Queen’. Clap your hands, make some magic and join in with the whole family, wherever they are in the world.
Iris Theatre is excited to present this interactive, online, storytelling adventure for audiences aged 4+ and their big people. Using innovative new technology, families will participate in the story, helping Holly in her adventure. Alongside the show, families can download a free activity pack filled with fun games and craft ideas based on the show.
£20 per device (Performances will take place live on Zoom)
Dates & Times:
4th February – 7.30pm
5th February – 7:30pm

With lush, ethereal harmonies, the classical chart-topping choir weaves its story-telling magic, performing songs from their new album, the extraordinary ‘Prayers of the Rosary’: Christmas Carols from their hit album ‘Of Kings and Angels’ and the uplifting hit title theme for TV’s Victoria, alongside traditional folk songs, and innovative settings of ancient and romantic poetry. Iris Theatre is delighted to host the Ivor Novello award-winning Mediæval Bæbes, for a remarkable set of socially distanced performances at St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden.

London can be lonely. But on the steps of St. Anne’s Church two people strike up an unlikely friendship. James has spent years running away from his problems, while Bridget is trapped by hers.
Following a five star, sell-out run ‘St. Anne Comes Home’ returns to the Actors’ Church. The new musical is written and composed by Jack Miles and told through original folk music.
St. Anne Comes Home is a story about community, friendship and forgiveness, that explores how reaching out might help us find our way.
