English Wilton's Music Hall
Wilton's Music Hall is a Grade II* listed building in Shadwell, built as a music hall and now run as a multi-arts performance space in Graces Alley, off Cable Street in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is one of very few surviving music halls and retains many original features.
Wilton's has been a producing venue since 2004. It produces imaginative, distinctive work that has roots in the early music hall tradition but reinterpreted for an audience of today, which means presenting a diverse and distinct programme including opera, puppetry, classical music, cabaret, dance, and magic. Situated at the heart of the historic East End within easy walking distance from The Tower of London, the River Thames and the City, it is a focus for theatrical and East End history, as well as a living theatre, concert hall, public bar and heritage site.
The venue recently underwent an extensive programme of restoration work. The theatre did not close at any point during the building works: instead running an interim arts programme called The Chrysalis Club. The award-winning spaces reopened in October 2015.

Questa è la sala concerti più antica del mondo. Costruita nel 1858 ha una luna e variopinta storia. Frequentata molto da marinai vittoriani (con le loro donne), divenne poi una missione sopravvivendo a due guerre mondiali, diventando un deposito di stracci, poi abbandonata e decadente per poi essere di nuovo trasformata in teatro. Oggi è uno spazio per spettacoli che mette in scena varie cose come marionette e poesia, lanciando un appello nazionale per non farla cadere a pezzi.
