óla! hej! hello!

Foreign Affairs is based at the Rose Lipman Building in Hackney, east London.

Built in the 1960s, the iconic building is located in the heart of the De Beauvoir Estate and is home to a bustling community of creative organisations.

We love the building so much that we host many of our productions and events here, and the majority of our training programmes and workshops.

See details below on how to find us whether you’re here to watch a show or take part in a workshop.
