The Finborough Forum is an invitation-only group of playwrights, directors, designers and other theatre creatives. Members of the Finborough Forum are invited by the theatre to attend monthly meetings, where they take part in a Q&A with a wide range of industry guest speakers, followed by a chance to socialise with fellow theatre practitioners.

The group originally started life in October 2017 as the Finborough Theatre Writers’ Group. After a successful two years, the group relaunched as the Finborough Forum in September 2019, expanding its remit to include theatre directors, designers and other creatives associated with the Finborough Theatre, in order to broaden the discussion and expand the camaraderie that has emerged between the playwrights in the group to other theatre practitioners.

The Finborough Forum is generously supported by The George Goetchius and Donald Howarth Society of Friend’s Awards. #FinboroughForFree
