Produced and presented by The Cockpit
An online channel and social platform, designed to shine a spotlight on the vibrant local community that exists just outside the doors of The Cockpit.
The magic of Church St is still one of the best kept secrets in London. And now you can follow Just Off Church Street for an insider’s view. Meet the residents, key workers, shop-keepers, chefs, volunteers and supporters - everyone and everywhere that makes up this multicultural, dynamic and unapologetically proper London neighbourhood. And while you’re at it, meet some of the characters at The Cockpit that keep the show on the road - come rain, shine, or flooded toilets...
Expect exclusive interviews, live performances, classes, behind the scenes peeks, chats, tips, catch ups... and even some meditation.
All hosted by The Cockpit's very own Jennie Buckley.

About Our Channel
Because we love our staff and our manor, we're setting up an online channel and social platform to celebrate the brilliant people and places behind and just around the corner from The Cockpit.
The community living and working around us are integral to what we do and why we do it. This is our chance to introduce you to the people that work so hard to make our theatre - and the streets around it - so unique. In our minds, the two are inextricably linked.
Prior to the current crisis, The Cockpit were serving the community with children’s theatre, yoga, meditation classes, and a sometimes just a big space to hold a meeting and look at a powerpoint - and we hope to do so again soon.
Here's a short video to explain what the channel is all about.
