Wilton's Music Hall

Wilton's Music Hall is a notable venue in the east of London and re-opened in early 2016 after a major re-furbishment. Alongside continuing its proud music hall tradition, the venue offers a programme of opera, theatre, circus, dance and circus.

Wilton's opened in 1853, and in a turbulent history has suffered fires and many threats of demolition which have been averted, on one occaison with the support of the poet John Betjeman. Spike Milligan was a long term fan.
