Unwrapping nature in the new season at Kings Place

Helen Wallace, Programme Director at Kings Place, discusses the rationale for its new Unwrapped season which lifts the lid on the natural world and immerses the listener to new ways of listening.

Kings Place is a welcoming arts venue presenting an adventurous and critically-acclaimed programme. Music and words are the heart and soul of our vision.

Every year we curate a series of festivals to engage a breadth of different communities. We are a place where many audiences belong, a place where people connect with their passion and no-one is lost in the crowd.

By opening our doors, people and creativity can flourish. We provide stages for artists, space for local communities, share our home with partners, and offer audiences unforgettable, shared experiences.

We are Kings Place, the cultural pulse of King's Cross.
