King’s Head Theatre is on the move

 

It’s branching out from the Islington pub to a new home in £400m development right next door.    you won’t have to go far from the original sight to see how visionary Artistic Director Adam Spreadbury Mahor, shakes up London fringe theatre.

The new theatre will have a 250-seat auditorium with a small studio and a bar. The existing theatre will provide a dining room for the pub. The venue has been the home of Opera Up Close and helped launched many careers including Alan Rickman, Sir Ben Kingsley, French and Saunders and Richard E Grant.
