A new decade dawns… and a new season of electrifying shows at CPT. There’s nowhere else in central London you’ll see kick-ass performance like this, from the boldest new theatre talents in the land.

There is, we’re happy to report, no shortage of 2020 vision. Our jampacked late-January features Chloe Florence’s “frighteningly cool” Smoke Weed Eat Pussy Everyday plus blistering work from Artistic Rebellion, Sh!ts!ck and more. (Click here to view the full January line-up.)

In March, we’ve got a banging Sprint festival – our annual cavalcade of the best and brightest shows from artists at the very start of their careers.

Then from April onwards, our Hit for Six strand showcases major new shows from the UK’s most exciting theatre-makers – among them CPT favourites HighRise, Amelia (BULLISH) Stubberfield, House of Blakewell, and a queer makeover for a classical legend with Hannah Greenstreet and Charlotte Vickers’ thrillingly alive Andromeda.

Beyond our walls, Beats and Elements and residents of the Regents Park estate launch their all-new project for the borough’s celebratory cultural programme Camden Alive. And watch this space for ‘Calm Down, Dear: the Camden Takeover’, as the 2020 edition of our epic feminist festival makes NW1 its own…

We hope you’ll join us this spring as we launch the decade in swaggering style.
