Wilton's Music Hall, London

4.5
#125 of 1,204 in Nightlife in London




Wilton's Music Hall is a Grade II* listed building in Shadwell, built as a music hall and now run as a multi-arts performance space in Graces Alley, off Cable Street in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is one of very few surviving music halls and retains many original features.


Wilton's has been a producing venue since 2004. It produces imaginative, distinctive work that has roots in the early music hall tradition but reinterpreted for an audience of today, which means presenting a diverse and distinct programme including opera, puppetry, classical music, cabaret, dance, and magic. Situated at the heart of the historic East End within easy walking distance from The Tower of London, the River Thames and the City, it is a focus for theatrical and East End history, as well as a living theatre, concert hall, public bar and heritage site.


The venue recently underwent an extensive programme of restoration work. The theatre did not close at any point during the building works: instead running an interim arts programme called The Chrysalis Club. The award-winning spaces reopened in October 2015.

  • What an amazing place. Loved the evening. Could do with proper theatre seating though but I guess that'd come at a cost. But who knows they may be able to raise the funds. Food looked OK but unfortunately it was all pizza so not much choice. All in all a beautiful building with a great choice of shows. Worth every penny to visit
  • Wilton's is an historic music hall and known as such because of the varied quality gigs featured there. However, it's cool semi-restored digs are also a great spot to grab a pint with mates. It's a favourite of mine.
