Sadler’s Wells is a world leader in contemporary dance presenting a vibrant year-round programme of dance of every kind - from tango to hip hop, ballet to flamenco, Bollywood to cutting-edge contemporary dance - bringing the best of international and British dance to audiences at three theatres in London.
Sadlers Wells also commission and produce original new work for their own stages and tour it to major arts venues around the world. Since 2005 they have helped to bring 80 new dance works to the stage.
Our goal is to grow the public’s enjoyment and understanding of dance by making dance relevant, meaningful and enriching. At the same time we seek to develop the art form by supporting artists and the creation of exciting new work.
The main theatre is located on an historic site in Rosebery Avenue in Islington. Work is also presented in their studio theatre – the Lilian Baylis Studio – and in their West End home, The Peacock Theatre.
Sadler’s Wells is a thriving arts organisation and a registered UK charity, working hard to maintain diverse revenue streams to ensure their financial stability.
Half a million people come to see a performance at Sadler’s Wells’ theatres each year and another 130,000 see their productions at venues around the world. The variety of the programming enables the organisation to attract large audiences from diverse backgrounds and age groups with a wide range of cultural interests.
