And more exciting news from us here at the Chelsea Theatre!

As one of the Kensington + Chelsea Festival’s Hubs, our 130-seat theatre here at World’s End is celebrating the return to live shows by throwing open our doors, inviting artists to come and perform in our newly renovated building.

Our venue has a long history of supporting emerging and established artists and companies and is re-opening after a £2m refurbishment, offering state of the art facilities nestled in a thriving local community.

Between 7th July and 31st August 2021 companies and individual artists will present Fringe-style work for one night each during the Festival representing a range of artistic styles.

We’re now putting together our programme of successful applicants, so please get your diary ready for some real treats this summer.

We can’t wait to welcome you.
