We were delighted to be able to bring  ALICE IN WONDERLAND to the stage and it was very well received. Looking ahead tickets are now on sale for HOUSE OF BERNARDA and KILLOLOGY, the next two PTC shows and A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH the next G64 show.

Details about auditions for CELEBRATION are on the Auditions page of the website.

Thank you to those who attended our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 19 October. The reports from our General Manager, Group 64 and Putney Theatre Company clearly reflected how much we have achieved over the last 18 months. We re- elected the three Trustees who are required by our constitution to stand down every three years, confirmed the election of one Trustee who was co-opted earlier this year and elected one new Trustee. We still have one vacancy on the Board.

You can read the annual report and accounts and minutes of the AGM on the Trustees page.

We are still looking to recruit new trustees to serve on the governing board for Putney Arts Theatre. If you are interested or know someone who might be, please see the Trustees page.

We are looking for support for our new  Fundraising Project for 2021/2022

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.

Follow Us on Facebook

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.
