The Sadler's Wells East Garden

All About Plants
The plants are the stars of the show in The Sadler’s Wells East Garden, celebrating the next generation of dancers and appreciators of dance in East London.

Distinctive trees and shrubs cut beautiful figures while colourful perennials and annuals echo layers, patterns and shapes of dance, scrambling, rippling and seeding about.

The manufacturing heritage of East London inspires the garden’s materials with reclaimed or sustainably sourced brick, timber and metal. A bent steel sculpture wends around the garden, framing different views of the planting as visitors walk, sit and even dance within the space.

Its profile hints at the saw-tooth rooflines of local warehouses and factories of the industrial revolution and of Sadler’s Wells East.

After the show, plants and materials from the garden will go to School 21, an associate school of Sadler’s Wells.
