Venue hire

The Royal Ballet School in Covent Garden, opposite the Royal Opera House, provides some of the best facilities to hire, from state of the art studios, academic rooms and pastoral facilities.

The building is linked to the Royal Opera House by a spectacular bridge, The Bridge of Aspiration, spanning Floral Street at fourth floor level, providing the students with safe and easy access to The Royal Ballet.

The four-storey building provides six air-conditioned, state of the art studios, one of which doubles as a performance studio with retractable seating for 200. The Royal Ballet School remains a standard for national and International excellence.

Venue hire opportunities at our Grade I listed building White Lodge, Richmond Park coming soon.
