Guest events

Sadler’s Wells has an artistic policy dedicated to presenting the best in world dance (read more here). Occasionally our venues host productions by companies whose work is outside our core artistic programme, and for these companies we provide the theatre space for them to put on their own shows. These shows are labelled as ‘Guest events’, and we recommend reading the text about each production on its webpage to fully understand its content and style, and to know which age groups it will be suitable for.
