Hackney Empire Theatre


The Hackney Empire is becoming the Capital's major independent venue, dedicated to providing the widest range of popular culture. Bringing prestigious companies from around the country and the world to the stage of the empire. Seasons include the best of British drama as well as some wonderful concerts, opera and ballet productions.

Not many people realise that Hackney Empire is a charity set up and maintained by local residents. In 2016, only 16% of our income was from public funding. Just to keep the doors open we need to generate at least £3 million income each year.

With ticket sales making up just 60% of their budget, it is the generosity of our supporters that allows us to continue our work on the stage and in the community.
