2018 has been a manic year at The Old Courts. Aside from a packed programme of events, it’s been all about bricks and mortar, expanding our offering and the ever-increasing list of new, fascinating people we’re lucky enough to meet and work alongside. We made the decision to gut and re-imagine The Bailiff Bar. A decision we didn’t take lightly but one we’re glad we went with. The relaunch has hit the ground running and we now have a superb programme of free and varied events attracting large numbers week in week out.

We’ve welcomed on board The Coven vegan restaurant and Static Records into another part of the building we decided to develop. Visit them if you haven’t yet! We secured the purchase of The Royal Court Theatre. A historic space with huge potential…..and an even bigger to do list to get it open! We’ve strengthened our staff team in all departments bringing on board a wealth of experience, ideas and humour.

2019 will be another busy year, definitely. We’ll be bringing you more gigs, more theatre, more exhibitions, more workshops, more new spaces, more new artists, more new opportunities and the inevitable curve balls we love being approached with. Bring it on!
