Arcola is proud of its mission to become the world’s first carbon neutral theatre though Arcola Energy, a programme of activity spanning everything from recycling bottles, to building facilities from old sets, to international green theatre partnerships.
Arcola Tent is an exciting pop-up, mixed arts venue, made almost entirely from reused or recycled materials. Soundproofing is provided by insulation materials from the Olympic site; the toilets and sinks are from a construction site near Cannon Street, and the space is heated by biodiesel made from waste oil from local takeaways.
