With that said, I am excited to share the wonderful location in which we will be sharing knowledge, helping each and every one of you who attend, and giving the creative jolt we all need to grow and see the inspiration that can take us to the next level, take the next steps in our careers, and find others who are just like us.

History: The Coronet Theatre is a large live music and night-club venue with a 2,600 capacity located at 28 New Kent Road in Elephant and Castle, London. The historic venue has been operating as an entertainment venue for over 100 years and to this day has managed to retain all of its art deco features.
The site was first occupied by the Theatre Royal, built in 1872 and destroyed by fire only six years later. Renovations were initiated by Jethro Thomas Robinson after the fire, and completed by Frank Hatcham, to what became the Elephant and Castle Theatre in 1879, where a very young Charlie Chaplin performed. The Theater was converted to an ABC cinema in 1928, a 3,100 seat cinema designed by Frank Matcham with a revolving steam driven organ. During the World War II, when London was being destroyed by The Blitz, the building stood strong and was often used as a shelter.
In the 1950s, the cinema made headlines when the manager exhibited the Bill Haley & His Comets movie Rock Around the Clock and the youthful audience ran riot. In 1966, with the onset of twinning, the Elephant and Castle Cinema was acquired by ABC Cinemas and split into a complex of three cinemas and also a luxury lounge was introduced. The first film to be exhibited was Bonnie and Clyde in 1966.
In 2003, the Coronet underwent a 3 Million Pound renovation, and its art deco design was fully restored. The venuehas since hosted many popular live music artists including Justin Timberlake, Wolfmother, Blur, Oasis, Primal Scream, The Libertines, Macy Gray, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Grinderman, The Decemberists, Hundred Reasons, Kelis, Alicia Keys, Caribou, Paul Van Dyck, Tame Impala, Placebo, among many more live gigs and parties. The Coronet Theatre is synonymous of live music, and digital performance events, and the biggest club nights in the capital.
