    History: The Coronet Theatre is a large live music and night-club venue with a 2,600 capacity located at 28 New Kent Road in Elephant and Castle, London. The historic venue has been operating as an entertainment venue for over 100 years and to this day has managed to retain all of its art deco features.

    The site was first occupied by the Theatre Royal, built in 1872 and destroyed by fire only six years later. Renovations were initiated by Jethro Thomas Robinson after the fire, and completed by Frank Hatcham, to what became the Elephant and Castle Theatre in 1879, where a very young Charlie Chaplin performed. The Theater was converted to an ABC cinema in 1928, a 3,100 seat cinema designed by Frank Matcham with a revolving steam driven organ. During the World War II, when London was being destroyed by The Blitz, the building stood strong and was often used as a shelter.

    In the 1950s, the cinema made headlines when the manager exhibited the Bill Haley & His Comets movie Rock Around the Clock and the youthful audience ran riot. In 1966, with the onset of twinning, the Elephant and Castle Cinema was acquired by ABC Cinemas and split into a complex of three cinemas and also a luxury lounge was introduced. The first film to be exhibited was Bonnie and Clyde in 1966.

    In 2003, the Coronet underwent a 3 Million Pound renovation, and its art deco design was fully restored. The venuehas since hosted many popular live music artists including Justin Timberlake, Wolfmother, Blur, Oasis, Primal Scream, The Libertines, Macy Gray, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Grinderman, The Decemberists, Hundred Reasons, Kelis, Alicia Keys, Caribou, Paul Van Dyck, Tame Impala, Placebo, among many more live gigs and parties. The Coronet Theatre is synonymous of live music, and digital performance events, and the biggest club nights in the capital.

    The smoke machine is for during my demo Phil. Rusty me...I shall be properly obscured

    The mockups for all the screens and the venue layout for the show look absolutely awesome. I can't wait for everyone to see what is in store when they arrive, and I must admit, it is one hell of a good spot for the party too Four days of inspiration and truth are coming!

    Good god man Elephant and castle one of the grimmest places of london. One of the worst crime ridden areas in all of london.

    I mean the venue might be ok adn all, but has anyone actually been to elephant and castle, and parts of south london that are close by like peckham etc? Anyone that tells me this place is a safe area to even go to, is out of their bloody minds, or has never lived in london, and observed street muggings by the youths there, and other crime. I dont want to put a downer on this, but to me this is one of the worst places to go. Sorry not going to be politically correct or anything, but it is in my opinion.

    This is the point where as a non-Londoner it's very conveniant to have a girlfriend who lives 5 minutes from a train station which has 6 trains/hour to Elephant and Castle!

    I've lived in London for ten years, there's nothing wrong with elephant and castle or Peckham for that matter

    The Coronet is not far from The Cuming Museum in Southwark, just a walk and a skip away. Southwark was home to Austin Osman Spare, one of my personal favourite artists, and there is a small permanent exhibition of his work at The Cuming worth checking out, as the full exhibition about 18 months ago was championed by Alan Moore. Spare was asked by Hitler to paint his portrait essentially because he'd seen Spare's self portraits with a moustache similar to his own! Spare made a copy of his own self portrait and sent it to Hitler with the following words on it, one of the best insults ever: "Only from negations can I wholesomely conceive you. For I know of no courage sufficient to stomach your aspirations and ultimates. If you are superman, let me be for ever animal."

    Worth watching to get an idea. I say this because this area is the old stomping ground of an artist who painted ordinary people in the pubs around Elephant and Castle, alongside the fantastical, and is not someone you'll see in The Tate or The National Gallery, but is just as important as far as London is concerned.

    Thank you for clearing that up Lightpunk.

    If it is good enough for these folks: Justin Timberlake, Wolfmother, Blur, Oasis, Primal Scream, The Libertines, Macy Gray, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Grinderman, The Decemberists, Hundred Reasons, Kelis, Alicia Keys, Caribou, Paul Van Dyck, Tame Impala, Placebo...then it is good enough for us. We researched over 100 venues, negotiated and emailed with more than 50, and this venue gives us the best options, best equipment, and most perfect setting for a life changing show. The area is home to both an art school and a big church...plus there will be 500 of us, so good luck to any mugger who wants to take on a crowd of artists with sharp pencils in their hands and the ability to sketch their perfect likeness from memory. So you are all aware, there is both security and a paramedic on site during the show in the case such is ever even needed (which to date, we have never needed any of the sort). This event is fully staffed. We are not left on our own to fend for ourselves. With that said, no matter where you go or live, do be careful always.

    The Prague workshop, and the San Francisco workshops were also in tougher areas as that is where the best venues can often be found...as well as the arts and vibrant creative scenes. Look at LA for example, you don't find the great stuff in Beverly Hills, you find it in Hollywood, Venice, Long Beach...and the same goes for my home town of Austin (east side!). And London is not LA or NYC or Moscow, crime wise.

    I will say this...when I lived in SF, I got violently mugged after safely walking through blocks of one of the worst neighborhoods in the city, only to find four muggers beating my ex and I on a street full of Mercedes and BMW's across from the posh restaurants full of suits. This show is going to be great, the venue is awesome, and we are lucky to have the opportunity to get together in a place that has every single thing we need including food, drinks, and all the tools required for a fabulous event.

    See you there!

    Not too sure where the best place to ask is but I live in London and would like to attend but may be moving out of the country within the next couple months. If I purchase a ticket is there a refund policy and/or can it be used by someone else if I transfer it?

    I've travelled through E&C late at night with no problems by myself. Missed last train and had to wait for a bus to get home. Like anywhere, you stick to the main roads where there are tons of people, It's a heck of a lot safer than fashionable Brixton. You seriously need to smell the wonderful aromas from the ethnic food stalls in the market. There's also a 10 pin bowling alley in the shopping centre. The Bakerloo line (the CA brown coloured one) is 4 stops away from Charing Cross and the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery.

If you are worried about that sort of things just do what you have been doing in all your life: Take care.. and enjoy this great opportunity! ...I am sure this is the less of the problems now

    btw.. a random question.. Jason do you know if Android Jones are comming to the event too?

    The Elephant and Castle shopping centre was a dump last time I was there (admittedly years ago - used to work not far away), but who's gonna hang around there. Get on the tube and whistle away elsewhere. Not the best part of London, but you can get mugged anywhere if you wander about looking clueless.

    Seriously this isn't about the actual bloody venue, this is about the area it is in. With all due respect Justin timberlake, rhianna et all would perform anywhere for money. To say muggings happen everywhere is correct, but to blindly talk about it dosnt happen in bloody southwark of all places is a joke. Where the hell do people think the bloody riots happened? The governments own crime statistics put the London borough of southwark and Elephant and castle near the top of all the london boroughs. To pass it of has saying well I travel to Brixton etc and nothing happens to me is a bloody joke and a disservice to what the borugh is actually like. This isnt just some tourist area that you might go to like Trafalgar square or Covent garden etc. This isnt a bloody tourist area fullstop, yes the venue might be some snazzy £3 million pound venue or whatever, that dosnt change the fact the area is a shite hole, and a reason why parts of the London riots were situated around these areas.

    Enough. We will not be living in fear of things that could happen anywhere in ANY big city, even in the most fancy and high brow areas (as I personally experienced in San Francisco). Many of the artists attending live in far more challenging places, I assure you. In fact, the crime in a one mile radius of Elephant and Castle is almost identical to that in a one mile radius of the Tate, which is average for London. For comparison, the area in a one mile radius around Buckingham Palace or even Big Ben, have over double the crime (each) of that within the same area of the Coronet Theatre.

    We are going to a creative event in a great venue and will have hundreds of kind, generous, and decent people with us. Safety is important. The venue has a full security and medical staff, attendees will be staying in the same hotels and hostels (as always people tend to group up), and we must all be careful, even if we are just driving to the airport and passing stoplights and pedestrians in the cross walk. Common sense goes a long way.

    For the benefit of those traveling I have print screened the following map from the London Police website which shows that the areas north of the river have higher rates. Do be careful out there, no matter where you are coming from or where you are going.

    Thanoss, thanks for the information. As said, safety is important, even if one is simply getting out of a taxi at the airport. BE CAREFUL ALWAYS.

    This is one of the reasons I am happy the locals are coming. We will be able to find the great food, the great art, and the safe passages far more easily.

    More updates to come!

    Thanks Jason for your help in answering my questions, much appreciated.

    On the topic of crime, having lived in South London, I will say Elephant and Castle is more than safe enough in the day time. In the night time it would be wise to use the same street wise sense you would use in any other major city. Don't go wandering around alone, looking like a tourist with a big map out, and stick to the major roads. In London the nice areas and the poor areas are quite mixed so you need to keep the same level of awareness no matter where you are at night.

    One thing about Elephant and Castle though is that it has great transportation links(two good tube lines, a train station, and a major hub for busses). I advise any visitors to look at the london transportation website(London has one of the most in depth public transportation systems in the world) and you can quite easily stay in another part of London if you desire and take the tube or the bus to the workshop venue. http://tfl.gov.uk

    I think the bad rep south London has is pretty much historical...
