SADLER'S WELLS THEATRE
Rosebery Avenue, London, EC1R 4TN

 

Sadler's Wells Theatre

Sadler's Wells produces commissions and presents works crossing the boundaries between different art forms. From contemporary dance to tango, hip hop to flamenco and tap to kathak the choreographers there are reinventing dance in collaborations with visual artists and musicians. In the past five years Sadler’s Wells has commissioned and co-produced almost 70 productions.

Sadler's Wells has a history of over 300 years having occupied the site since 1683 with six previous theatre buildings all carrying the name. The current building on Rosebery Avenue in Islington opened in 1998 with a performance by the Rambert Dance Company after a major fundraising programme which was supported by Lottery funding. The new theatre has a vastly improved auditorium with a capacity of 1,500

The 221 seat Lilian Baylis Studio is part of the Sadler's Wells building and presents a wide ranging programme of emerging and established artists. It was built to compliment the main Theatre in 1988 and stands beside the new Sadler's Wells Theatre with its entrance via the Theatre's Cafe and Stage Door.

Sadler's Wells is also responsible for the management of the 1000 seat Peacock Theatre which is just off Kingsway. It has been part of the Sadler's Wells group since the company moved there during the building works in the 1990s.
