The Caravan Theatre

"A Tiny Theatre with a Big Heart"

 

Small Truth Theatre are delighted to be taking ownership of 

THE CARAVAN THEATRE as our brand new micro arts venue. 


WE HAVE BIG AMBITIONS FOR OUR LITTLE THEATRE VENUE!


 Our first new project concept will be called KENSINGTON KARAVAN (housed inside the Caravan Theatre) and working in our home community - bringing brilliant new writing to our local North Kensington community.

 

The KENSINGTON KARAVAN will be a new cultural micro-venue programme, specifically bringing new plays to local audiences, right in the heart of North Kensington. 


As well as working locally we will also be travelling out to other communities and partnering with various venues and festivals as THE CARAVAN THEATRE. 


Small Truth Theatre are proud to take over the running of the venue from its founder Robin Linde Productions and will ensure it continues to build on the legacy Robin successfully achieved with this venue over the last few years.
