The Courtyard is a theatre housed in the former public library (originally known as the Passmore Edwards Free Library) in Pitfield Street in Hoxton, London Borough of Hackney, England. It is a Grade II listed building.[1]

The Courtyard operates both a 150-seat main house and an 80-seat studio theatre. It is also home to the acclaimed Iambic wine bar.

The Courtyard hosted the first London Horror Festival in October/November 2011,[2] a co-production between The Courtyard and Theatre of the Damned, the UK's first festival of horror in the performing arts.

From May 23 to June 16, 2012 the Courtyard hosted the London revival of Meredith Oakes' play Faith starring ex-Eastender Charlie Clements.[3]
