Since opening in 2010 it has been our mission to establish New Diorama as the creative heart of the West Euston Area

A big part of our commitment to our local community is to ensure the theatre is regularly available for local organisations, groups and charities to perform, rehearse and creatively express themselves completely free of charge.

This strand of our work, supported by British Land, provides vital opportunities for the full cross section of our community to come together and celebrate the culture, talent and creativity of our fellow residents. 

Examples of recent local groups using New Diorama vary from an annual pensioners' pantomime, written and performed by local residents from our Communuty Partner The Third Age ProjectMix It Dance company from the Surma Centre, Kentish Town's Sing For Joy Choir, and variety performances for all ages ranging from 3 year olds to a dancing and singing centenarian from the West Euston Time Bank!

We've also staged performances by talented young people from local groups such as New Horizon's Homeless Youth Centre and to our communtiy partners Fitzrovia Youth In Action for groups creating and editting their own short films.
