Our theatres

Sadler's Wells Theatre auditorium
We have three London theatres, and are building a fourth, which is set to open in 2023.

Sadler’s Wells in Angel

Sadler’s Wells Theatre

Sadler’s Wells Theatre has entertained audiences in Angel, north London, since 1683. The current theatre opened in 1998 and is the sixth to have stood on site. In the 1,500-seat auditorium we present large-scale work by some of the best national and international dance companies and artists.

Lilian Baylis Studio

The Lilian Baylis Studio seats 180 and presents a programme of small-scale work by emerging and early-career dance artists, experimental work by established artists and productions made specifically for young audiences.

The Snowman
In a snowy landscape with tall pine trees leaning in from the sides, winter figures dance in pairs – in the centre a tall snowman wraps fluffy arms around the shoulders of a young girl in white tulle as she points a foot in a ballet slipper. Around them, other pairs are in the same pose – including snowmen, penguins, and Father Christmas.

London International Mime Festival - Familie Flöz - Feste
A dancer wearing a full-face mask - a young woman in a high-necked, white evening gown – looks up towards a glitterball. Squares of mirror flake away from the glitterball and fall down on her, while her feet are hidden by a heap of bin bags crammed with rubbish.

Jim Steinman’s Bat Out of Hell
On an apocalyptic city street bathed in red light, a group of seven people head towards us, one on a motorbike, one with a fist in the air, others prowling forward in fishnets, leathers, baseball boots and bustiers, the scene framed by two columns of flame.
