King's Head moving

Thu, 3rd Aug 17
A new venue plan for the King's Head pub theatre

The King’s Head Theatre is on the move - the well-worn, much-loved 110-seat auditorium can no longer contain the artistic ambition of the Theatre. To realise a creatively and financially sustainable future, the company is set to move to a brand new theatre space within Islington Square, immediately neighbouring its current location.

Sager Group in association with Cain International, along with the King’s Head Theatre and Young’s, have, following extensive discussion and collaboration, submitted a planning application to Islington Council. The aspiration is that the King’s Head Theatre will move in to its new purpose-built space by Autumn 2018. Here, it will be able to continue to grow and thrive within the community.

The theatre space within Islington Square has been designed by celebrated architect Graham Currie of ISA, and will be equipped to meet the demands of a thriving theatre in the 21st century. The submitted proposals would see the creation of a 250-seat auditorium and an 85-seat studio, along with bar, foyer and outstanding facilities for actors and audiences alike.

While the brand new theatre is built, the King’s Head Theatre will be as busy as ever in a temporary home, just 10 doors up the road in the current John Salt Bar at 131 Upper Street. This temporary space has been designed to match the capacity and specifications of the current King’s Head Theatre and will bridge the gap before the move to the new permanent theatre and allow the King’s Head Theatre to continue the diverse and exciting season as normal.
