For everyone with a curious imagination

We present extraordinary theatre and music in the oldest Grand Music Hall in the world. Our Grade II* listed building is home to over 300 performances and over 80 productions each year. 

Wilton's welcomes world-class artistic talent to the East End all year-round. We carefully select productions for our unique building, including: The Box of Delights by Piers Torday based on the novel by John Masefield; Kneehigh’s The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk; Olivier Award-nominated Songs for Nobodies; Oliver Award-nominated English National Opera’s Paul Bunyan; Balletboyz’ Young Men.

Recently named 5th most iconic building by Time Out, Wilton's has a unique spirit that has captured the imagination of generations of artists for over 160 years. We now invest in the next generation of actors, directors and musicians through our Heritage & Artistic Engagement programmes.

In 2018 we won Historic England's People's Choice & Followers' Favourite Angel Award 2018, following the 4-year Heritage Lottery Fund-supported and multi-award-winning capital project. In 2019 we also won Best Historic Wedding Venue at the UK Wedding Awards.
