The Astoria 2, subsequently known as the LA2 then the Mean Fiddler, was a nightclub at 165 Charing Cross Road in London, England.HistoryThe venue was originally a ballroom in the basement of the London Astoria theatre and connected by stairways, so that the two venues could function as a single venue when needed. Like the Astoria, the venue was used for live music as well as night club promotions. At one point the venue was called Bang and was a gay nightclub.A venue also called Mean Fiddler was previously set up in Harlesden, north west London in 1982.In June 2006, the Mean Fiddler was sold — together with the London Astoria — to property group Derwent Valley Central, who planned to convert the site into a combination of shops and offices.In January 2009, the property was compulsorily purchased for Crossrail. Astoria 2 had a closing party, headlined by rock band Open The Skies, with support from Outcry Fire, F.A.T.E and Orakai. The final club night PUSH was held the following day on 15 January 2009, with Cajun Dance Party and Good Shoes being the very last acts to play at Astoria 2. The entire venue has now been demolished.

Founded and led since 1988 by choreographer Siobhan Davies, Siobhan Davies Dance has evolved from a touring dance company into an investigative contemporary arts organisation. By 2002 Davies moved away from the traditional theatre circuit and started making work for gallery spaces and alternative locations. Recent works have been presented at some of the most prestigious art institutions in the UK, including the ICA and Whitechapel Gallery (London), Turner Contemporary (Margate), Tramway (Glasgow) and Glasgow Museum of Modern Art. Davies works closely with collaborating dance artists to create new work and applies choreography across a wide range of creative disciplines including visual arts and film.
In the year 1911, the opulent Victoria Palace Theatre was designed by Frank Matcham as a music hall for Alfred Butt. Earlier, it was Butt who purchased the Royal Standard Music Hall. He demolished the Royal Standard Music Hall but retained the gold mosaic and white Sicilian marble pillars. They also retained the exterior faade, canopy and cupola and had a huge occupancy of 1550.

Opened in September 2012, St. James Theatre is a unique, award winning arts complex in central London. With a 312 seat main house presenting plays, musicals and revues, and a 120 capacity Studio in cabaret style offering over 250 shows a year, the St. James has established itself as the vibrant cultural hub of the rapidly developing Victoria area and a major player on the wider cultural scene.
A theatre of choice for the best regional transfers, the perfect space for mid-scale musicals and musical revues, or the first stop for ambitious productions with designs on the West End, we stage shows that excite us, that marry great writing with visionary artists and that will appeal to theatregoers of all ages.
A commercial enterprise without subsidy, we produce, co-produce and receive shows alike. In our first 18 months we have had two West End transfers (Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tell Me on a Sunday; Urinetown: The Musical), two Olivier Award nominations (Cinderella, Tell Me on a Sunday), six What’s On Stage Award nominations and an Offie award nomination. Productions have been helmed by such renowned directors as, Sir Trevor Nunn, Max Stafford Clark, Sir Jonathan Miller, John Caird, Jamie Lloyd, David Grindley, Tamara Harvey and Blanche MacIntyre.
The artistic programme is of course at the heart of establishing a new theatre, but so too is the audience experience and here the St. James excels. We try to deliver a balance of new and interesting work, plays and musicals that are both thought-provoking and entertaining.
Enjoying the character and intimacy of a cabaret space, the versatility of a theatre, with the acoustics of a concert hall, the St. James Studio has also established itself. With a judiciously curated programme of cabaret, jazz, comedy, musicals, and theatre, often in the same week, the Studio is now widely, recognised as a champion of new musical writing, new cabaret, lunchtime theatre and political comedy.
Finally, as a 21st century arts venue, the St. James incorporates TV production/broadcast facilities and multimedia capability. Coupled with the first class bar and catering facilities and in an atmosphere of designer comfort, the St. James is also the ideal environment for AGM’s, conferences, book and product launches, showcases, workshops and whole range of corporate and creative interaction.
The St. James is run by a team dedicated to making the theatre one of the best experiences in London. Please visit us soon and enjoy all that the St. James has to offer.

London Irish Art endeavours to explore the personal understanding and the experience of the Irish diaspora living in the U.K., specifically in relation to culture, identity and creativity. A dynamic programme of art, poetry and music, will inform this exciting investigation. A vast array of media will be explored, ranging from the more traditional forms of painting, photography, mixed media and sculpture to the more contemporary means of expression such as video work, installation and stop-motion animation.
As London holds the largest Irish diaspora in the world, this exhibition endeavours to represent an on-going dialogue between these two countries. Striving to build ties and cultural relations with the Irish art scene in the U.K., this event is organised to provide artists with cross border exposure.
Gallery 223 has been established to represent artists who deserve the stage, in a venue we know you will find unique and rewarding. As you will discover, it may be the antithesis of the white wall contemporary gallery but the art itself comes alive in this exceptional space.
We want to retain a balance between those with a passion for collecting art and those with a genuine interest in following the arts. As such, the gallery will run by appointment throughout the week, and strictly by very limited invitation only, to events and exhibitions. Please don’t let this deter you from contacting us as we will ensure that everyone who wants to be involved will be.
Beyond the Gallery we will bring cultural experiences to Gallery 223 through regular exhibitions, events and an Arts Club.
Gallery 223 has been created by local businessman, Dennis Geary who has opened several art ventures in the area and contemporary british artist Tom Leamon. Art advisor Sonia Chamberlain brings many years experience to the Gallery.
We look forward to welcoming you to Gallery 223.

At Dr. Sketchy we want to make life drawing more than just nude models and serious sketching.
So we've scoured this great city to find beautiful burlesque performers, bizarre circus acts, and rippling hunks of man-flesh.
Then we let them loose on stage to release the artist in you! In between each round of sketching our larger-than-life models you get a chance to grab a drink get comfortable and take in some of the finest burlesque, comedy, music, poetry and quirky cabaret performances the big smoke has to offer.
And remember Dr Sketchy isn't about being an amazing artist, it’s about having a go! So don't be shy and put pencil to paper, move it around and see what happens – you might be surprised!
Pencils & paper provided, all you need bring is your enthusiasm!
It's what art classes would be if the class was unleashed in the Moulin Rouge!
