The Albany

Based in the heart of Deptford, the Albany is a performing arts centre with a history stretching back to the nineteenth century.

We present a huge range of shows, events and participation opportunities each year, across art forms and for all ages and tastes.

The Albany has four performance spaces, including its unique central performance space, with a capacity of 300 seated and 500 for standing events. Our other facilities include a café bar, rehearsal and meeting rooms for hire, and office space.

We are a registered charity and a social enterprise, earning 60% of our own income which we reinvest in our programme and building.
