About Us

Kings Place is an open, multi-arts venue, presenting an adventurous and critically-acclaimed programme, with words and music at its heart.

Every year we curate a series of festivals to engage a breadth of different communities. We are a place where many audiences belong, a place where people connect with their passion and no-one is lost in the crowd.

Kings Place was developed from a generous act of philanthropy. Driven by a belief that arts and culture are a fundamental part of a thriving city – our work is as vibrant as our location in King’s Cross.

We are a registered charity and we do not receive regular public funding. Our income is generated through ticket sales, donations, grants, and the staging of world-class conferences and events.

We are rooted in partnership and have developed a collaborative community of resident partners and artistic associates.

By opening our doors, people and creativity can flourish. We provide stages for artists, space for local communities and young musicians, share our home with partners, and offer audiences unforgettable, shared experiences.

Our Values:

We value excellence

We aim for the highest standards across everything – both on and off stage in order to provide value to our audiences and partners.

We value diversity
We know that the more diverse and inclusive we are as an organisation, the stronger, more creative, more resilient and relevant our work will be

We are generous
We are rooted in partnership. We extend our collaborative ethos to each other and share our building with everyone.

We are agile

We are Kings Place, the cultural pulse of King’s Cross.
