I am very happy to announce that the Lansbury Lawrence School Choir have been selected to perform at The Wilton’s Music 4 All Festival on Wednesday 13th May 2020. Wilton’s music hall is the oldest grand music hall in the world and is hosting a world premiere of the Wilton’s Music 4 all Festival from the 11th May-16th May 2020.

Wilton’s Music Hall is a Grade II listed building in Shadwell, built as a music hall and now run as a multi-arts performance space in Graces Alley, off Cable Street in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is one of very few surviving music halls and retains many original features.

Wilton’s has always been an exceptional place for an audience to hear live music but it has also built up a reputation for world-class musicians performing and recording in the space, such as: Duran Duran, The Weeknd, Marc Almond, Kate Bush, The Coral, Bryan Ferry, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Kelis, Mumford and Sons and Paulo Nutini.

Wilton’s Halls history extends back to the 1690s. The buildings that now house our box office, bars, offices and rehearsal space began as houses, shops and a pub.
It was John Wilton who went on to build the Victorian Music Hall, as it now stands, in 1859 behind the row of buildings on Graces Alley. Wilton’s ambition was to provide West End glamour, comfort and first-rate entertainment for East End working people.
Since 1859 Wilton’s has served as a music hall, a Methodist missions and today presents a programme of extraordinary theatre and music all year round.
