What's on

Welcome to Riley Theatre.

NSCD’s very own performance venue is situated at the heart of the NSCD building. Originally a working synagogue, the building is now Grade II listed with a bespoke stage and intimate seating, perfect for contemporary dance performances. We host a varied and inspiring programme of exciting shows from visiting professional companies to current student work, with the aim of fostering creative talent and nurturing professional dance development.
