The Queen's Theatre Hornchurch is a vibrant producing theatre in the London Borough of Havering, serving East London, Essex and beyond since 1953.


As a registered charity and the cultural hub of the region, over 200,000 people enjoy the theatre's programme every year, including the best in home-produced theatre, visiting live entertainment and inspiring Learning and Participation projects. 


Behind the scenes almost all of our sets and costumes are all lovingly created on-site by our highly skilled carpentry workshop, scenic artists and wardrobe department.


The Queen's receives regular funding from the London Borough of Havering and as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. This helps us put theatre at the heart of the cultural life of the community we serve.

Prop Hire

As a Repertory Theatre we do have to find a lot of specific furniture or props for our shows, from period writing desks to Jack’s magic beans, most of these we keep in our store for future use.
