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. 

Lightroom is located in King’s Cross on Lewis Cubitt Square, adjacent to Coal Drops Yard and Central St Martin’s. It was designed by Haworth Tompkins 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.
