  • Visitor Information

This July, The Yard theatre brings a collection of the finest and funniest Edinburgh Festival comedy shows to East London - before they go to Edinburgh. These exclusive preview performances include comedy bingo, Ellievision from Ellie Taylor, the girl with big teeth you may have seen on Snog Marry Avoid?, silly sketch outfit WitTank, the Birthday Girls - Beattie Edmondson, Rose Johnson and Camille Ucan - whom The Telegraph called "Britain's funniest women", and the effortlessly funny Alexis Dubus who wraps up the month-long The Yard Laughs series on 24th July with his musings on 'Cars and Girls'.

 

About The Yard

The Yard theatre occupies a unique warehouse space - where the concrete floor and corrugated roof are clearly visible - located two minutes from Hackney Wick rail station. Designed and built by Practice Architecture, in collaboration with Christopher Daniel, the dormant warehouse in Queen's Yard has been split into two sections - one housing the theatre, and the other the bar, open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 6pm till late, where exhibitions, poetry readings, film screenings, live bands and visiting DJs regularly feature.
