Peacock TheatreThis theatre is a major force on the national and international dance scene, with an innovative programme from Sadler's Wells that is keeping London's finger on the pulse. The Peacock Theatre became the company's base from 1996 to 1998 when a new theatre was being built on its Islington site and, since that time, has been a shining star in the Sadler's Wells sphere. From the avant-garde to the mainstream, the repertoire is always diverse and dynamic with electrifying dance and movement shows, stunning operas and musical productions. Families have also flocked here at Christmas time since 1998 to see the stage transformed into a magical winter wonderland in The Snowman. The building itself has managed to shed its retro 60s image to become a cool venue perfectly suited to hosting the creme de la creme of the dance world.
