Peacock is Sadler’s Wells’s satellite venue designed to appeal to a West End punter. As such, you can expect the programme to lean towards populist dance theatre from the likes of fluoro/UV dance company Momix and Miguel Angel Zotto’s Tango por Dos. Just don’t wander in while the sun is still up: by night, the Peacock auditorium may play host to dance spectaculars, but by day the space becomes a lecture hall for the London School of Economics who owns the building.

The Peacock Theatre is a small but beautiful space located near Holborn Station. As in most tiny theatres in London, the atmosphere in the Peacock is always very friendly and cosy. 
I went a couple of times during the Mime Festival (that I highly recommend as it's a pretty unknown but nonetheless brilliant festival happening every year in London) and even at furthest seats at the back, I have been able to enjoy the play as if I was close to the stage!


This theatre is like the young brother of Sadler's Wells theater, as they are collaborating quite often. Really nice theatre, centrally located with modern lounges & quite spacious seats. If you like contemporary circus or physical theatre, out of the ordinary, then this is your place!

LSE does NOT own it either. This is a fiendish concept by a donor to both of us. It's the most terrible venue for academic lectures and I can't in age its any better for jazzy ballet like Havana Rakatan, but I am planning to go see. The Theatre is long and narrow and you have to go down to the bowels of the earth. Wish some entrepreneur would open a snack bar daytime in the glorious coffee bar though
