Tara Theatre - Connecting Worlds


Bringing together artists & audiences under the shade of our tree.

Step through the Indian front door into a world of colour, where the small is global. Tara Theatre's 100 plush seats surround an earth floor for actors to weave their magic on. Its Studio offers opportunities for intimate rehearsals, small events and meetings, while its outdoor Patio - flanked by railway sleepers - lets in light and air in safe surroundings.

Tara Theatre is home to a world of stories, from the classic to the new.

 


Why ‘Tara’?

The word Tara has a number of meanings that represent the work we do.

In Hindustani/Urdu ‘Tara’ means 'star' – Tara is a shining beacon for multiculturalism, the star that rests over the door of Tara Theatre guides the community towards our home of art.

In Buddhism ‘Tara’ is the Goddess of Love and Art and in Ireland the ‘Hill of Tara’ was an ancient seat of power – at Tara we aim to be a power for good through art, creating a home for all who visit and working at the forefront of multiculturalism in Britain.
