The Camden venue has been revitalised...

Historic London venue KOKO will re-open in Spring 2022.

The venue was devastated by an enormous fire in 2019, while closed for refurbishment; shortly afterwards, it suffered extensive water damage.

The mission to restore and revitalise KOKO has been ongoing ever since, aiming to re-open a London venue that has housed everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Madonna.

Owned by the BBC for three decades, the building was where The Goon Show and Monty Python’s Flying Circus would record their iconic shows.

Founder and CEO Olly Bengough led the restoration, working in partnership with SISTER, the global content company behind the success of the Chernobyl drama.

Set to open its doors once more in 2022, KOKO has been overhauled, with newly rediscovered aspects of the original Victorian building brought out in the process.

With new bars, a different lay out, and fresh aspects to the KOKO experience, it looks to be a significant development for the city, and for the country as a whole.

Alongside this, KOKO is set to launch its own radio station, while the KOKO Foundation will launch as a platform to support new artists.

In addition, KOKO will boast a new shop featuring artist collaborations and a late night pizzeria and tap bar featuring live sets.

CEO and Founder Olly Bengough comments...

“After three long and epic years of construction and restoration, I’m excited to announce that we will be returning KOKO to the musicians, artists and fans next spring with a beautifully restored theatre and live music offering that will hopefully be a truly unique and unparalleled experience for everyone coming through the doors.”

“We are as committed as ever to protect our 120 year cultural legacy and to support the next generation of musicians and London’s dynamic and ever growing music scene. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to KOKO in Spring 2022...”

KOKO will re-open in 2022.
