TROUBADOUR WHITE CITY THEATRE
August (dates TBC)
Elephant West is a pioneering new creative space in West London, launched in November 2018. Designed by the award-winning architecture studio, Liddicoat & Goldhill, the space serves as a platform for emerging talent through an ambitious programme of immersive cultural experiences. Elephant West is the physical manifestation of the print and online visual culture magazine, Elephant, and aims to express the motto of “Life Through Art”.
Elephant West aims to be a space for all, where visitors will find great coffee, high-speed Wi-Fi, interesting artworks and a variety of events and activities to engage with. The space belongs to the community just as much as it belongs to Elephant; we encourage an active engagement with art and culture under our roof, but it is also a place to sit and work, or to have a relaxing drink with colleagues after work.
Troubadour Trust is all about opportunity, learning, accessibility and inspiring arts in the local community. We offer learning and engagement programmes for schools, teachers, local groups and those who can’t easily access the arts, we provide subsidised tickets, a friendly and inclusive environment and free activities in our various venues for the local community. With training and opportunity in all the skills that go into making theatre we also recognise and support emerging talent, especially in stage and set design. We believe everyone has a place at a Troubadour Theatre – watching or creating the show. Troubadour White City Theatre will open this summer at White City Place, the former BBC Media Village in West London. This new venue will be operated by the award-winning team behind the successful King’s Cross Theatre, home to the Olivier-award winning The Railway Children and David Bowie’s Lazarus. This new state-of-the-art hub will consist of a 1,200-seat fully flexible theatre plus an 800-seat fully flexible multi-purpose venue with an interconnecting foyer space that is perfect for exhibitions. We are excited to offer this space in partnership with Elephant.
