Arts at St John’s Waterloo:

St John’s is a well-known London music and arts venue. It runs the annual Waterloo Festival of arts, heritage and community every summer. Following the recent refurbishment project, we are now building a year-round programme that will encompass world-class orchestras and classical musicians, art exhibitions and installations, theatre, community-led events and festivals, and many other as yet to be imagined events.

Some see us as a fringe and a gateway to the international offering of the Southbank. Some come back time after time for great music in a friendly setting. Importantly for us, many of our events are co-produced by groups and individuals from across South London, reflecting the local area and inspired by our very special building.

These projects are devised and produced in partnership with our local community, regular participants and organisations that share our vision for the building and our neighbourhood.
