Peacock Theatre

Peacock is Sadler’s Wells’s satellite venue designed to appeal to the West End punter. As such, you can expect the programme to lean towards modern circus, populist dance theatre, and even the odd musical. 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

Lovely theatre, and the location is just wonderful.. many place surrounding the theatre, including cafe's shops and other theatres!! Lovely place
