ASSEMBLY – AN AMPHITHEATRE FOR THE FLEET STREET QUARTER

CULTURE AND CREATIVITY TAKE CENTRE STAGE AT THE CITY'S FIRST AMPHITHEATRE IN 2000 YEARS

 

The Fleet Street Quarter are excited to launch ‘Assembly’, a remarkable open-air amphitheatre created by Urban Radicals, AKT II and Millimetre for the London Festival of Architecture 2024, set against the historic backdrop of Kings College London’s Maughan Library Courtyard.


The new outdoor theatre will host a series of incredible free alfresco performances, talks, public debates and workshops throughout the summer from 11 June – 31 July in partnership with key cultural partners such as Sadler’s Wells, Kings College London, London Metropolitan University, and Troubadour Stageworks, and more.


The amphitheatre is located in King's College London's historic Maughan Library courtyard and offers a unique space for the community to come together and celebrate diversity and artistry. The amphitheatre is designed with inclusivity in mind, freely open to the public. It seats 50 guests and is fully wheelchair accessible.


See below for our line-up of free performances, talks, public debates, and art workshops, with the full programme to be released in the coming days. Please note there are more events to be announced, so make sure to keep an eye out for updates!


Please note, some events require booking as a limited number of seats are available. All events are 100% free to attend, sponsored by the Fleet Street Quarter BID.
