The Print Room is a fringe theatre located off Westbourne Grove in the London Borough of Westminster. It officially opened in September 2010.[1] and produces a programme of theatre, art, dance and music events.[2]

The theatre is run by director Lucy Bailey and artistic director Anda Winters.[3]

The theatre is housed in a converted 1950s warehouse which had served as a graphic design workshop. The venue has two spaces: an 80-seater studio, which it uses for its larger productions, and a 40-seater space for smaller theatre pieces, play readings and art exhibitions.

In July 2014, it was announced that The Print Room is taking over the Coronet Cinema in Notting Hill Gate and will make it its new home, as the owner of the warehouse plans to demolish the building to build luxury flats. [4]

The Print Room stages little known work by classic authors such as Anton Chekhov, Arthur Miller and Harold Pinter, and modern day dramatists such as Brian Friel and Will Eno. [5]
