Hampstead Theatre​

Welcome to Hampstead Theatre. We were born in a humble hut sixty years ago. Our simple mission was to create original theatre without creative restriction. We quickly attracted a generation of talent that helped to redefine British Theatre. That not only entertained but propelled the art form forwards.

From Harold Pinter testing out his early plays here to the likes of Mike Leigh, Michael Frayn, Brian Friel and Terry Johnson – to name just a few. Original thinkers, every one.

Our commitment to our patients is in the quality of our care, the range of our services and the quality of our consultants and staff. They are, we believe, the very best in their profession. Together we offer a welcome to all to visit us.
