Paines Plough, one of the UK’s leading theatre companies, are working with Lambeth Council to bring our pop-up venue Roundabout to Slade Gardens for ten days in August. Paines Plough will put on plays and a musical, with some tickets to every Paines Plough show free to local residents, and concession prices available to all SW9 residents. There will also be plays and events from visiting companies, and free community events every day, including free activities for young people.
Closest stations to Slade Gardens are Stockwell (11 min walk) and Brixton (14 min walk)
Closest bus stop is Loughborough Road (3, 59, 133, 159, 415, N3, N109, N133) which is just outside the park.
Yes, there will be toilets located just outside the venue.
No, we are not able to provide cloakroom facilites at this time.
Roundabout has a built in T-loop available for every performance. Just ask our friendly Front Of House staff, and switch your hearing aid on to use it.
Roundabout is fully wheelchair accessible and is always popped up on a step-free site. We can accommodate up to four wheelchair users per performance by removing sections of the front benching, so wheelchair users are seated on the front row. Companions are provided with a seat next to the wheelchair.
We welcome assistance dogs, though do ask that you let us know in advance using the above contact details, and provide proof that any dog is registered with an organisation that is a member of Assistance Dogs UK or equivalent.
