Support Us

We would like to thank the considerable number of members and friends who have supported our fundraising campaign, Shine On, by making either a one off or regular donation in the last year. There is no question that your contributions have considerably helped our long-term sustainability and are much appreciated.

We hope that we will be able to gradually increase activities over the next few months, in line with the government roadmap and overall public health situation, and that many of you will be able to join us as we bring our building back to theatrical life.

We’ve all learnt a lot about what we value over the last year, and, we want to go back to doing what we love, providing access to live theatre for young people and adults alike. However, we’ve also learnt that we cannot take things for granted, and don’t yet know what the “new normal” may mean for Putney Arts Theatre, so we expect that the next 12-18 months is likely to be a time to review and rebuild and hope that you will continue to support us as we go forward.

What We Do

Putney Arts Theatre is home to two theatre groups, as well as having exhibitions, events and outside performance groups in regularly from the local community. 


One of the leading adult amateur theatre companies in the UK.

We produce theatre that challenges our audiences, but also entertains them. We provide a friendly atmosphere, a rehearsal process that helps actors develop, get to know new friends and become a part of our local community.

We are a Young People's Theatre Company based in the heart of Putney. 

We run weekly drama classes for ages 4-19, holiday projects, and opportunities to be involved in performance, directing and technical theatre. We also have an education department and a graduate company called Little Echo.


Putney Arts Theatre

Putney Arts Theatre was formerly the Old Union Church, and the building dates from the mid-19th Century. 

The facilities of Putney Arts Theatre are available for hire as both performance space and rehearsal space, as well as a venue for meetings, exhibitions or private parties. 


We are a community theatre.

We make work that is any and sometimes all of the following: bold, adventurous, challenging, classic, new and sometimes more than a little bit silly. Above all, our work always strives to be of the highest standard.

We are driven by a community of active members that includes local Putney residents, people from the borough of Wandsworth and from further afield throughout London. Being the base of both Putney Theatre Company and Group 64 Youth Theatre, we are driven by the hard work of our adult members and the playful experimentation of our youth.

Formed in 1964 out of the coming together of a couple of local community drama groups, we began life as Group 64. 1968 saw us find a home in the Old Union Church which we continue to inhabit, gaining the freehold in the late 1990s with the help of a Lottery/Arts Council grant.

Throughout the years our plans for the building, acts of refurbishment and artistic output continued to expand alongside each other. In 1999 we brought Putney Players into our community and they became Putney Theatre Company with Group 64 looking after the dramatic pursuits of our young people.
