Work at Kings Place

Kings Place is an exciting, multi-arts, cultural destination and state-of-the-art conference venue in Kings Cross’s vibrant new quarter. Independently funded, Kings Place finances its artistic output through ticket sales, commercial enterprise and the hire of our spaces and facilities for rehearsals, conferences, filming and recordings.

With two world-class performance spaces, our unique programme of music, spoken word, comedy and family events is managed by the charity Kings Place Music Foundation, in collaboration with partners such as Aurora Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Poet in the City, all of whom are based in the building.

Festivals include London Podcast Festival, Sonica, The Politics Festival, London Piano Festival, Bach Weekend, Songlines Encounters and the venue’s year-long flagship series Unwrapped. Kings Place is also home to Pangolin, London’s only commercial contemporary sculpture gallery, and has further gallery spaces curated by Piano Nobile.

The award-winning building, which is also home to the Guardian newspaper, is located in the heart of King’s Cross on the Battlebridge Basin, and has its own public atrium, canal-side Rotunda Restaurant and Bar, plus the Green & Fortune Café.
