Kilburn’s Kiln Theatre (formerly the Tricycle) started life in 1929 as a meeting hall for the Friendly Society of Foresters, before being converted to a theatre in 1980 by Shirley Barrie and Ken Chubb, who named it the Tricycle in honour of their touring theatre company. In 1998, a cinema screen was added.
Following a recent, much-needed major architectural renovation plus renaming/rebranding to Kiln Theatre, the venue has been fully redeveloped for the next generations of theatre and cinema-goers.
The venue serves a wide range of audiences from across London including its home borough of Brent, the most culturally diverse borough in London.
