#PoweringThe
Imagination

The Turbine Theatre is a brand-new theatre on the banks of the Thames next to the iconic Battersea Power Station, founded and led by Artistic Director Paul Taylor-Mills.

New energy drives everything we do, from festivals of brand-new works, world premieres of new productions and classic stories reimagined for contemporary audiences.

Every story is a journey and The Turbine Theatre aims to be just the first stage for every idea, risk and labour of love that is brought to life in this electric new environment. We want to be the spark for the most talented and diverse voices that theatre has to offer.

We’re also passionate about playing a vital role at the heart of the emerging local Battersea community, offering a dynamic public space by day, groundbreaking theatre by night.

The Turbine Theatre is an intimate theatre with big ambitions, but everything we do revolves around one simple idea: powering the imagination.
