About Italia Conti

OUR Facilities

In 2022, Italia Conti’s 111th year, we moved into our purpose-built building in Woking where our new era of talent is nurtured



Modern Purpose Built facility

The building is 48,000 sqft over 2 floors, with 24 state-of-the-art rehearsal studios, one-to-one coaching rooms, a gymnasium, a theatre, TV & Film suites and a recording studio.

Dance Studios

Our purpose-built building has 24 state-of-the-art rehearsal studios, including dedicated and multi-purpose spaces for acting, dance (including ballet studios) and musical theatre training. Our studios have Harlequin sprung floors and dual height black metal Ballet bars.

Acting Studio

All of our acting studios are black box, with access to a well-stocked prop store and feature a piano and an integrated sound system.

Studio Equipment

We have a Kawai Piano in every studio, as well as an integrated JLB sound system floor-to-ceiling mirrors, sprung floors from Harlequin and black metal Ballet bars. All studios have WiFi connectivity for playing music for sessions.

The Gym

Our gymnasium features a wall to wall gym floor, ten aerial rigging points, with silks, hoops, trampet and crash mats.

The Hub is a space for students to relax, socialise and take breaks. The area has a student kitchen where meals can be stored and prepared.

Rhoda McGaw

A stone’s throw from our main facility is the Rhoda McGaw Theatre, which can be used for large Italia Conti performances. The theatre has a capacity of 228 seats in 9 rows of raised seating and is part of the New Victoria Theatre, Woking’s cultural hub for theatre and the arts.

The Buzz Theatre

Next to the Rhoda McGaw, The BUZZ theatre is a new 84 fixed-seat, fully equipped studio theatre, with retractable seating, where Italia Conti can stage regular productions.




Woking is a town and borough in northwest Surrey, England, around 22 mi from central London.  Around 60% of the borough is protected by the Metropolitan Green Belt.  Woking town centre is around 36 km (22 mi) from central London.

The two main shopping centres, The Peacocks and Wolsey Place adjoin Jubilee Square. A second public space, Victoria Square, where Italia Conti is located, was completed in 2022 as part of a project to construct two high-rise residential apartment blocks and a 23-storey hotel.
