“The Yard: a little bastion of everything theatre’s supposed to be, in the exact spot that a theatre shouldn’t be.”
- Time Out Magazine
The Yard is a multi-award winning theatre and music venue in Hackney Wick, East London. In 2011 Christopher Daniel & Practice Architecture collaborated to design & build a 110-seat theatre in a disused warehouse in what was then a quiet industrial park. In the years since then the Olympics have come and gone and the Yard has evolved to become one of London's most exciting venues at the centre of a thriving cultural district.
“The Yard is a fantastic new venue. It gives young artists the kind of opportunities that can transform their careers. And it gives its audiences a wonderful night out. It feels like the future.”
- Nick Hytner, former Artistic Director, National Theatre
