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.
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

guest speakers and for screening films produced at East 15. There are also
additional 14 studios for students to use.

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 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.
