Polish rock band Hey will be stopping by London's Scala for one night this November. Hey have a huge fan base both in Poland and other countries and have released several successful albums. Their gig in London will provide the opportune moment for them to promote their latest studio album, planned to be released in autumn 2012.

Situated in central London, Scala is housed within the old King's Cross Cinema. There are a number of sights, attractions and hotels near Scala. To find the best hotel deals near Scala, be sure to visit our London Hotels page.

 

About Scala

Housed inside the old King's Cross Cinema, the Scala might be a bit tattered around the edges but this only adds to its battered charm. The venue welcomed legends like Iggy Pop during the 70s, but didn't become a purely music venue until 1993. More about Scala
