The Merchants Of Bollywood

Until June 11, 2016

Back in London after their successful run in 2011, this Bollywood dance extravaganza returns with all the flair, color and high-octane dance that you've missed! Choreographed by celebrated Bollywood dance impresario Vaibhavi Merchant, the stage musical is loosely based on two real-life figures in India; an aging Indian temple dance purist, and his more modern Bollywood-style granddaughter. When their two styles clash, it seems that the family bond is broken - but can they resolve their differences to carry on both traditions?


June 14-18, 2016

When hear the word "flamenco", we automatically think of those elegant Spanish crowned dancers, and the strumming guitars throughout the streets of Seville. But what if you learned that the art form actually originated in India? Zik'r is a brand-new dance show created by Killing Joke bassist, Youth, that traces the evolution and journey of flamenco from India, brought West along the Silk Road by gypsies to Spain, to the phenomenon that we know and love today!

Cirque Eloize iD

September 20-October 8, 2016

The incredible talents of the Cirque Eloize are once again on display with their urban dance and music inspired iD show, back in London for the first time in three years!

The wildly successful live stage adaptation of Raymond Brigg's best-loved children's cartoon makes another return to the Peacock this Christmas. On a cold winter's night, a young boy gets the surprise of his life, when the snowman that he built that day magically comes to life! Together they embark on a wondrous adventure, and escape peril by the troublesome Jack Frost. A must-see for youngsters and adults alike, this will relight your Christmas spirit!
