About Lightroom


Lightroom is a new home for spectacular artist-led shows

Launching our programme with a collaboration with David Hockney in February 2023, we invite the world’s leading creative minds to use our vast space and revolutionary technology to create something completely new.

Our two shows David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away) and The Moonwalkers: A Journey with Tom Hanks are both open at Lightroom. See Bigger & Closer every Sunday to Wednesday, and The Moonwalkers every Wednesday. For more information on our shows and when you can see them, visit our What’s on page.

Lightroom is located in King’s Cross on Lewis Cubitt Square, adjacent to Coal Drops Yard and Central St Martin’s. The innovative showspace was designed by 59 Productions in close collaboration with Haworth Tompkins, who have designed the venue as a sister space to the award-winning Bridge Theatre. Along with a generous Foyer and gift shop, the space also contains a bar and seating area in collaboration with St John.

Lightroom is a joint venture between 59 Productions and London Theatre Company. Lightroom’s CEO is Richard Slaney and its executive chair is Nick Starr, co-founder of London Theatre Company. Lightroom is backed by a group of investors led by Sir Leonard Blavatnik who is represented by Danny Cohen, President of Access Entertainment; and Mike Sherwood, former co-CEO of Goldman Sachs International.
