The Colour House opened as a theatre in the summer of 1995. Our Grade II listed building stands in the picturesque riverside setting of Merton Abbey Mills and has a history of over 500 years, which includes being used by Arthur Liberty to mix his fabric dyes in the early 1900’s.
Today the venue is open for a variety of theatre shows, events, music gigs and comedy. We have become best known for our weekend Children’s Theatre which specialises in producing original musical adaptions of famous fairy tales. In 21 years we have entertained over 100,000 children, receiving charitable status nine years ago and we recently celebrated our 100th Production!
The theatre also hosts a well-established monthly Blues Club, Comedy Club and Chamber Concerts. All of this, in addition to regular touring productions and exhibitions makes our venue a busy and vibrant place to be!
We hope to see you soon!
