Rehearsal Space in South London

Mountview in Peckham has a range of studios, theatres and work spaces available for hire along with a large-scale professional rehearsal room.

Specialised acting and dance studios measure between 10x8m and 10x10m, have ceiling heights of 3.4m, and are all equipped with a piano, sound system, TV screen and wall-mounted white board. Dance studios also contain ballet barres and mirrored walls, which can be curtained off as required.

These spaces are perfect for play/musical rehearsals, dance/movement classes or choir rehearsals for up to 30 people.

Ideal for filming, our soundproof TV studios measure 95m2, with a ceiling height of 3.4m – enabling you to fit your own set and/or green screen into the space.

We also have a professional radio/voice over suite available for hire.

Fitted with banked seating and a basic lighting rig, these spaces are perfect for informal work sharings and r&d projects. Our ground floor black box studios have 95m2 of usable floor space, easy access to our atrium for guests, and dark walls for that theatre feel.

Mountview’s professional rehearsal space is available throughout the year. The 190m2 space measures 15m x 12.5m, with a ceiling height of 2.8m, and has a robust dance floor, goods lift access directly from the delivery yard and 1.5m-wide doors. The room comes with an upright piano and curtained mirrors.

Hires of the professional rehearsal studio will have access to an adjoining kitchen space and toilet and shower facilities, while a company management/meeting room and additional rehearsal space can also be added on as required.

When booking for a week or more, the space is yours exclusively, with access from 8am-9pm, Monday-Saturday.

The Backstage Theatre is an 80-seat flexible theatre space with a maximum playing area of 12.5m x 10m, and a ceiling height of 6 metres. Depending on availability, seating can be arranged according to your specification. This space works really well for plays and/or showcases with up to 15 cast members, or for simple filmed projects.

As part of your hire, you’ll also have access to the theatre’s three dressing rooms, a technical manager, and front of house staff for your performance (if required).

The Backstage Theatre has limited availability throughout the year due to our extensive programme of student productions. Please get in touch to discuss availability – hires@mountview.org.uk

The Mack is a 180-seat proscenium arch theatre, with seating across stalls and balcony. It’s the perfect space for youth theatre productions and showcases, choral or musical concerts, and dance recitals. With five ample dressing rooms and a stage space of 70m2, we can happily accommodate groups with up to 50 performers.

As part of your hire, you’ll have access to the theatre’s dressing rooms, a technical manager, and front of house staff for your performance.  Ticketing services can also be provided by special arrangement.

Testimonials

“Whizz Kid Entertainment and BAFTA used one of the studios at Mountview as a location for a shoot with the host of the BAFTA Film Awards 2019, Joanna Lumley.

We needed a large, relatively empty studio that could be dressed for various set-ups and also house an area for wardrobe (numerous costume changes) and make-up and hair. We used the TV studio and it was ideal on all levels – it was super helpful that the studio was sound-proofed and that there was a café and a restaurant within Mountview for crew coffees and lunch.

Joanna and the production team and crew were really impressed with Mountview as a filming location but also as a school – it has a great atmosphere and is brilliantly located close to a shopping street and public transport connections.”

– Sophie Huda, Line Producer, British Academy Film Awards 2019

“ITV recently spent two days filming at Mountview for the 5th series of Autopsy: The Final Hours of…

Thank you to all the team for making our crew feel so incredibly welcome and supported. The facilities are brand spanking new and the spaces available are incredibly versatile. We made great use of the rehearsal spaces, dressing rooms, theatre, dance studio and would go back again in a heartbeat. There are few multi-purpose spaces of this kind in London that are competitively priced.

There’s lots of resources on site – lifts, showers, some parking and whilst you can bring in your own catering there’s also a delicious reasonably priced bar and café. It’s currently a hidden gem of a filming location, staffed by an unflappable, helpful and accommodating team. I wish Mountview every success for the future and have no doubt we’ll be back again soon.”
