‘This glittering old jewel of an auditorium, surely one of the most exciting in the country’
Griff Rhys Jones

Hackney Empire is a special building in a special place. Built in 1901 and now a Grade II* listed building, the Empire is the largest organisation of its type East London with a 1,300 capacity main house and 200 capacity new space Empire 2 to support youth and community programming.

Hackney Empire has always been a confluence of the arts and popular culture. Driven by its core values of quality, diversity and engagement, it boasts a fast-growing reputation for nurturing and presenting work that is at once extraordinary, inclusive, inspirational and transformative. It offers its communities and customers an eclectic mix of the highest quality performance work and creative learning activity undertaken within defined strategic imperatives that aspire.

Last year we attracted more than 170,000 audience members to a wide range of work. More than 50% of our audiences come from Hackney and East London with the remaining travelling from across London to see performances and experience the unique atmosphere of our auditorium.
