About the Theatre at Battersea Power Station
Last year, in the summer of 2022, a brand new theatre opened its doors, brought to life by artistic director Paul Taylor-Mills and theatre producer Bill Kenwright.
The theatre plays a vital role in the local Battersea community, as it shows brand new plays, and aims to be the first stage for every new idea. They also take familiar tales, and re-write them for contemporary audiences. It’s already staged several world premieres of new productions.
During the day, the theatre transforms into a dynamic public space with a welcoming bar and cafe. But as the sun sets, it comes alive with the buzz of live performances.
