Koko General Info
KOKO IS AN ARTISTIC COMMUNITY AND CULTURAL INSTITUTION WITH 120 YEARS OF HISTORY.
Charlie Chaplin twirled his cane on the stage and Madonna made her UK debut here, while Monty Python and the Rolling Stones recorded in the studios. KOKO began life as The Camden Theatre and was opened on Boxing Day 1900 by the leading actor of the day, Ellen Terry. Over the following 120 years, some of the world’s biggest artists have graced KOKO's stage: Amy Winehouse, Kanye West, Childish Gambino, Dua Lipa, Stormzy, Janelle Monae and Coldplay have all played with us in recent years, whilst Prince played on numerous occasions through his career before appearing at KOKO for his last ever London show. While we have worked with these stars throughout their careers, we also take risks and support new artists every week – J Cole, Dave, , Christina and the Queens, Cardi B and H.E.R have all graced the stage early on in their careers.
We are based in the heart of London, only five minutes walk from the nearest train lines and a 30-minute ride from Heathrow Airport.
