Filming & Photography

Wherever possible, Sadler's Wells welcomes filming or photography that relates editorially to the theatre's artistic programme or the venue. Filming and photography at Sadler's Wells may only take place by prior arrangement, whether in our public spaces or in backstage areas, or during the course of a performance.  

If you have a general filming or photography enquiry that relates to Sadler's Wells, rather than a specific production, please contact Press Office Administrator Laura Neil on or +44 (0)207 863 8126.

For filming or photography requests relating to a specific production at the theatre, please refer to the appropriate season press release and contact the Press Officer listed for the show.

For location filming or photography not relating to Sadler's Wells or its artistic programme, please contact the Events department.

Please note that all enquiries should be made with as much notice as possible, with details of the context, timeframe, intended transmission / publication dates if known and an indication as to whether it relates to News Access filming, or documentary.


Access to photocalls

Access to photocalls at Sadler's Wells is by invitation. If you would like to attend, please contact the Press Officer for the production, outlining the nature of your commission and giving examples of your work.

Photographs taken at our photocalls must only be reproduced for editorial purposes, not for commercial use, and always crediting the company / artists and production in full. If you would like to use the image for any other purpose, please contact the Press Office in the first instance.
