Our Loughton Campus is based around Hatfields, a beautiful Georgian dower house, set in five acres of lawns, with orchards, flowerbeds and a small lake. The location provides an idyllic atmosphere for study, relaxation and performance. The campus is also close to the ancient Epping Forest - which offers further opportunities for outdoor activities.

Recording studio

The Courtyard Studios consists of six large rehearsal spaces, a radio studio and a screening room, the Orchard Studios provides three additional rehearsal spaces and the Dance Studio has first-class facilities for ballet, jazz and other movement work. The Radio Studio is equipped for the recording of radio plays and voiceover work, while a Screening Room is used for screening both DVD and VHS on a large screen, with stereo speakers. This is used for lecturing, guest speakers and for screening films produced at East 15. There are also additional 14 studios for students to use.

Central Line connections to central London in within five minutes walk from the Campus

Corbett Theatre

Hatfields is also home to the Corbett Theatre, named in honour of Harry H Corbett, an important Theatre Workshop member and early benefactor of East 15. The building is a medieval tithe barn that was dismantled and transported to Hatfields in the 1960s. Its unusual origins create a unique performance space with a special atmosphere. Combined with full technical facilities, tiered seating for 125 people and fitted dressing rooms, the theatre provides an excellent resource for public productions. Lectures, rehearsals and technical classes also take place here, while the adjacent and newly extended Theatre Foyer Bar and Cafe provides a social meeting point for students and staff.

Computing and library facilities

Computer rooms are based at Hatfields with additional computer facilities at Roding House and at the Technical Unit. Facilities include computers, internet access, printers and photocopiers. In addition there is a new and growing library within Hatfields House and students can also use the Colchester Campus library, which has holdings amounting to over one million books, periodical issues and microfilms, including 7,300 current periodicals.

Roding House and the Costume Department

Just a five-minute walk from Hatfields is Roding House, a new £1.3 million facility with ten rehearsal rooms, a green room/cafe and sound recording studio. The extensive costume department is also based here.

Unit Four

Unit Four is home to the Technical Theatre course and is situated in it's own £1.5 million facility, next to Roding House. It houses the large technical department and contains a workshop, paint shop, prop shop, prop storage facilities and teaching spaces.
