Part of the University of the Arts London's award-winning campus for Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, Platform Theatre has four performance spaces and a bar. Opened in December 2011 when the redevelopment of King's Cross began, the theatre has excellent facilities and a versatile performance space. Mainly Platform Theatre is used for the students' public performances but it also hosts independent external events, including the London International Mime Festival, Dance Umbrella and the London International Festival of Theatre (LIFT).
