About the garden

A garden inspired by

Sadler's Wells

In early 2024 Sadler’s Wells joins the rich cultural heritage of Stratford, opening Sadler’s Wells East as part of the East Bank development within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Home to a Hip Hop Theatre Academy and Choreographic School, Sadler’s Wells East will also house a flexible

theatre which will host a wide variety of dance performances. Community will be at the heart of Sadler’s Wells East with a large open foyer that can be used by everyone, as a meeting or performance space. There will also be dance studios and world-class dance facilities for dancemakers to train, create and rehearse productions

Where can you visit this garden after the Show?

Sadler’s Wells partners with a number of schools and colleges in north and east London to help embed arts-inspired activities into the school day. One of these is School 21 in Stratford, just 15 minutes’ walk from Sadler’s Wells East.

Plants and materials from the garden have been relocated here to help children take part in outdoor arts-inspired activities, learn about plants, and provide a space for children particularly for children with special educational needs to relax and take time out.

“It is thrilling that our new venue inspired a garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. It was a great platform to raise awareness of Sadler’s Wells East and the opportunities it presents, both for people in east London and the UK’s dance ecology, supporting artists and growing the next generation of talent.” Sir Alistair Spalding CBE, Artistic Director and CEO, Sadler’s Wells
