Summer Showtime on The Coaling Jetty


Over the years Battersea Power Station has lent itself as a backdrop to many silver screen classics including, Alfred Hitchcock’s Sabotage, Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life and of course, Batman’s The Dark Night. The Power Station will once again be stepping into the limelight as the backdrop to Summer Showtime on The Coaling Jetty, London's most unique open-air cinema and theatre experience.

Taking place on the Grade II*-listed Coaling Jetty with amazing views of the River Thames and Battersea Power Station, Summer Showtime will run from Friday 21st August – Sunday 20th September. The open-air event will feature performances from The Turbine Theatre and screening’s from boutique cinema operator, Archlight Cinema, both of which can usually be found under the iconic railway arches in Circus West Village.
