  • Visitor Information

A bold, geometric canal-side structure attached to the top of a Haggerston warehouse has been awarded the 2019 Antepavilion Architecture Prize. London's newest theatre, the temporary Potemkin Theatre provides a stage for opera, family-friendly theatre and new writing as well as expert architectural talks. Opening with a performance from Shadwell Opera, the programme draws to a close almost a month later with a weekend symposium focusing on the future of immersive theatre and design with guest speakers including members of the PunchDrunk team. Whether you visit for a performance or a rooftop cinema screening - films shown celebrate the urban architecture of global cities - you can enjoy the fantastic views from the roof overlooking the canal.
