Tara Arts - Connecting Worlds

The beautiful New Tara Theatre opened in 2016, quickly becoming a national landmark as an intimate home for cross-cultural theatre, fusing architectural styles from East and West.

A distinctive tree motif carved on the Edwardian façade of the new Tara Theatre welcomes audiences and artists alike into a bower for people, words & art. Stepping through the antique Indian front door, Tara Theatre's 100 plush seats surround an earth floor - made of soil from Devon - for actors to weave their magic on. Its Studio offers opportunities for intimate rehearsals, small events and meetings, while its outdoor Patio - flanked by railway sleepers - lets in light and air in safe surroundings.

Founded in 1977 by Artistic Director Jatinder Verma MBE, Tara Arts began life as a touring company. It staged its opening production, Sacrifice, a play by the Nobel Prize-winning Indian playwright Rabindranath Tagore, at Battersea Arts Centre in August 1977.

Patrons: Sir Richard Eyre CBE, Shobana Jeyasingh MBE, Naseem Khan CBE, Hanif Kureishi CBE, Sir Salman Rushdie, Nitin Sawhney OBE.

Tara Arts is a registered charity no: 295547.
