Announce Exciting Autumn Season!

Shoreditch Town Hall have announced their autumn season for 2023, featuring astonishing productions, artist development workshops, and feel-good community events for all.

After wowing audiences with their acclaimed Who Cares? and Trojan Horse, multi-award winning LUNG Theatre return with Woodhill, fresh from their run as part of Summerhall’s programme at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. A call to arms about the crisis facing prisons with gut punching choreography and unflinching beats, this searing production tells the story of three families who investigate what happened to their boys as the hidden story of HMP Woodhill is revealed.

Part of this year’s EFG London Jazz Festival, acclaimed collectives Clod Ensemble and Nu Civilisation Orchestra present a new perspective on Charles Mingus’ iconic 1963 recording The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady (9th/10th November), transforming Shoreditch Town Hall into a vibrant cabaret venue to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the album. Bringing Mingus’ music to life for a new generation, dancers, band and audience all share the dancefloor, along with this rhythmically explosive work.

Kicking off the season with an Open House on 17th September, which invites those from all over the city to come and explore some of London’s best-known buildings for free, as well as some of its best kept secrets.

On 16th October, audiences are invited to join a very special Town Hall Tea Dance, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the first tea dance, launched back in 2013. With a glass of bubbles and a slice of cake on arrival and music from resident DJ Mr Wonderful, tea dance regulars and first time visitors alike are all very welcome.

It’s back and better than ever – sold-out hit One-Drum return to Shoreditch Town Hall this autumn for The Festival of Highlife - Afrobeat Jazz Afternoon (Sunday 22nd October). So get ready to groove to the mesmerising rhythms of Afrobeat with a day filled with vibrant performances, engaging workshops, and an unforgettable jazz disco.

The season also gives audiences the opportunity to learn new theatrical skills. A Visual Vernacular (VV) workshop (9 th September), led by renowned VV artist and performer Duffy and  Theatre Re's monthly Sunday professional classes also return for the autumn/winter term.
