Exciting news for arts in Nine Elms as The Turbine Theatre is opening under the railway arches at Battersea Power Station’s Circus West Village.

This brand new theatre on the banks of the Thames is presented by Bill Kenwright and founded and led by Artistic Director Paul Taylor-Mills. The opening play will be Torch Song, presented by Bill Kenwright, which is a new revival of Harvey Fierstein’s landmark play.

Doors will open at The Turbine Theatre under the Grosvenor Bridge railway arches on 22 August. This is the latest cultural development in the regeneration of the Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station, following the opening of Archlight cinema earlier this year.

Paul Taylor-Mills, Artistic Director, The Turbine Theatre said, “I’m elated to be launching a brand new theatre at the iconic Battersea Power Station. The vision is a simple one, to enable world class artists to tell stories that enchant at The Turbine Theatre and eventually play beyond our London home. We’re interested in being the starting point for new shows and also reimagining the older ones.”
