Toynbee StudiosToynbee Studios hosts a range of theatre and dance performances and events, offering the chance to see works in development as well as the finished piece. A 280-seat theatre, four rehearsal spaces, a rooftop dance studio and the Arts Bar & Cafe all host performances and events throughout the year and there are also regular showcases, artists' talks and workshops. Since 1995 Toynbee Studios has been the home of Artsadmin which, in December 2009, celebrated its 30th birthday with a book, Artsadmin
30, documenting 30 artists who've worked with the arts company - including Mike
Figgis, Lemn Sissay and Rosemary Lee - photographed by Hugo Glendinning,
taken in and around Toynbee Studios. For a full programme of what's on at Toynbee Studios go to Artsadmin's
