The Jacksons Lane Arts Centre has received £2.26m funding to help complete a radical redevelopment to make the building more accessible to disabled people.
The latest grant is from Arts Council England, and helps the centre in Archway Road, Highgate towards the £5.1m it needs to complete the project slated for next year subject to planning permission.
Haringey Council has committed £1m, and a public fundraising campaign to find the remaining £1.7m will launch later this month.
Jacksons Lane is a UK-leading centre for non-verbal theatre, including circus.
The centre's artistic director Adrian Berry said: "Everyone at Jacksons Lane is absolutely thrilled by this news. "We can now look to deliver even more exciting, diverse arts performance and engagement in a building that our audiences and artists can be proud of."
