About us

The King’s Head Theatre is an ambitious, thriving producing house located in the heart of Islington. Passionate about championing ethically produced fringe theatre, we are known for our challenging work and support of young artists.  We are committed to fighting prejudice through the work we stage, the artists and staff we work with, and have done so since 1970. We believe in fair pay for all on the fringe and provide accessible routes for early-career creatives to stage their work, work we are passionate about.

We command a unique place in the Capital’s theatre ecology. From the emerging companies and creatives to thousands of audience members we welcome through our doors every year, people are at the core of everything we do.

In 2022, subject to a successful fundraising campaign, the King’s Head Theatre will move into a custom-built space in the heart of Islington Square, directly adjacent to its current home, securing the future of the venue and a safe space for generations to come.
