Caruso St John have submitted a planning application for a new venue for classical music in west London. The project is to revive the Twentieth Century Theatre, a Grade II listed former music hall on Westbourne Grove in Notting Hill.
The building was previously an antiques arcade and has not been used for performance in more than fifty years. The new theatre will be home to the Aspect Foundation, an organisation that aims to bring chamber music to a wide audience, and will provide facilities for musical education, practice and performance.
