Today we announced at our annual press conference, our plans to establish a new 500-seat theatre to complement our main theatre on Rosebery Avenue, the Peacock Theatre in the West End and our 200-seat Lilian Baylis Studio.

These plans are part of our broader ambitions for the art form which include an ongoing investment in artists and commissioning original new work as well as the maintenance of our world-class theatres.

As a world leader in contemporary dance, Sadler’s Wells commissions, produces and presents world-class dance from around the world. Over the past decade, with your help, we have helped to put London on the global map for contemporary dance.

In recent years we have become increasingly aware that much of the contemporary dance work being created across Europe and elsewhere is made for 500-seat theatres which are specifically designed for dance.

While many theatres of this size exist across Europe and other cultural capitals around the world, London currently lacks a theatre of this kind. This means there are companies, artists and productions that we’re unable to bring to London audiences.

A new theatre will be a major undertaking for us and we will work with our supporters to help us realise this important project for dance. During the months ahead we will be intensifying our search for an appropriate site for the new space and I look forward to keeping you updated on our progress.


Almost ten years after he was appointed Sadler’s Wells Artistic Director and Chief Executive, Alistair Spalding today announced his vision for the theatre’s next decade. Together with David Bell, Chair of Sadler’s Wells, Alistair Spalding outlined plans to establish an additional, fourth performance space for one of the world’s leading dance organisations.

The 10-year plan for the expansion of Sadler’s Wells is also backed by a commitment to invest £5 million incommissioning new dance works.

The decision to develop a new space responds to the need for a 500-seat venue in London specifically designed to present new, mid-scale contemporary work. Although many of Europe’s most important dance theatres are this size, London lacks such a space. A world-class venue for cutting-edge contemporary work would help confirm London’s position as a global centre for the art form.

David Bell said: “Sadler’s Wells has established itself as a powerhouse for dance. The demand for dance continues to grow and yet London lacks a mid-scale space for contemporary work. This newvenue will fill the gap between the main house and our studio space.”

Alistair Spalding said: “The public appetite for dance has never been greater. We want to respond to this, and give the creative talent in this country a proper chance to develop for the future growth of the art form. To achieve this, we need to be able to expand beyond our current base – without losing the unique quality and atmosphere that is associated with Sadler’s Wells.”

Why a new dance space is needed:

· The art form lacks a 500-seat venue specifically designed to present, mid-scale contemporary dance in London.

· Audiences for contemporary dance continue to grow and a new 500 seater will expand the range of dance artists and productions we can present to London audiences.

· An exciting, flexible space with a large stage would attract more of the world’s leading choreographers and creators to London.

· To provide a flexible space specifically designed for contemporary dance.

· Allow London to compete with other international contemporary dance centres.

· To create a space specifically designed to serve dance-makers and audiences of the 21st century.

What the new space would provide:

· A new 500-seat contemporary dance space for London.

· Enable continued growth in audience for contemporary dance.

· Help to confirm London’s position as a global centre for contemporary dance.

. Provide a different and more intimate experience for audience and artists.

· Help to change perceptions about dance’s place in the cultural landscape.

· A creative resource for the community.
