UK Theatre is delighted to announce a partnership with the Arts Theatre to host the organisation’s first ever Member’s Lounge. The new facility will open on Monday 20 January.
Located steps away from Leicester Square tube station, the lounge will open exclusively to UK Theatre Professional and Professional Plus Members and their guests from 9am to 4.30pm every Monday to Saturday, serving reasonably priced, high quality food and drink in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The bar is licensed throughout the day for Members. As well as free wifi, the Lounge will be equipped with large number of power points to let Members charge their mobile and laptops.
David Brownlee, UK Theatre Executive Director, commented “As someone who has spent most of my working life based outside London, I wasn’t surprised one of the top priorities when we consulted on our new scheme was a place for Members to prepare, meet and relax in central London. We couldn’t have hoped for a better location for our Lounge than the Arts Theatre. As an Organisation Member of UK Theatre, the management and staff are well tuned-in to the needs of our Members and will offer a wonderful service at affordable prices.”
The Member’s Lounge private space is used in the evenings by the popular Covent Garden Cocktail Club which will be fitted with new furniture in time for the launch. UK Theatre Members will also become Members of the Arts Theatre and will be welcome to stay past 4.30pm as the Lounge turns into the Member’s Bar. The offering also includes priority access to the light and airy ground floor cafe, with exclusive discount prices available only to UK Theatre Members.
Anyone who works professionally in the performing arts can join UK Theatre as a Professional Member. Details of how to join can be found here.
