Main Theatre

With a comfortable auditorium comprising 409 seats, the main theatre has excellent flying and lighting facilities and wing space. The theatre is suitable for plays, lectures, product promotions, fashion shows, demonstrations, game shows, quizzes, orchestral and dance performances, commercial and advertising shoots and recitals, just to name a few.

The theatre is frequently used by the Nairobi Orchestra and by visiting dance troupes.

This theatre is the home of the annual “Braeburn Pantomime”, which in the past has seen the golden coach of “Cinderella” be a large 4-wheel drive vehicle, and more recently a flying aeroplane. This will give you some idea of the possibilities of the venue!

The stage is 88 square metres, and backstage facilities include the stage side storage facilities, flying, dressing rooms and toilets.

There is a coffee shop in the foyer which is open during performances and adult patrons may use the Club bars.

The Austin Room

This theatre opened in 2002 and is a much more intimate venue – ideal for small cast plays, recitals and lectures. With 126 seats, steeply raked and with excellent sight lines, the Little Theatre is ideal for presentations. TEDx documentaries and talks are held here every Saturday from 10.30–11.30 am.
