Our two main locations are amazing places to live and work.


We are the world’s best-known theatre company and everything we do begins in our Stratford-upon-Avon workshops and theatres.

Based in the heart of the Midlands in Stratford-upon-Avon, a beautiful town with a rich history. The birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is a hub for tourists who visit in their thousands each year to see the church where the playwright was born, visit the houses where he and his family lived, and watch his plays performed in his hometown.

Our theatre sits on the banks of the River Avon, home to swans and other wildlife. Our main offices are adjacent to the theatre and close to the town’s busy restaurants, shops, pubs and coffee shops.

The town has a thriving arts scene, good schools and is surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to the Cotswolds. We are also within easy reach of Birmingham, Oxford, Leamington, Warwick and Coventry.

It’s a great place to work.



London is the heart of the theatre world, and our second home.

We regularly perform to audiences in the capital. Our productions play in the Barbican and a range of West End theatres. Our multi-award-winning Matilda The Musical is currently in its seventh year in the Cambridge Theatre.

Some of our jobs are London-based, so they can be close to the rest of the theatre industry or support our work in London.

We have a London office, centrally located in the West End, and our London rehearsal rooms are where our shows begin their lives.
