“The company are already enjoying their time at Here East, and we are happy to be a part of their cultural community as we prepare our upcoming production of Cinderella,” said Patrick Harrison, executive director of English National Ballet.

The development also facilitates work in film, music and visual art. The Victoria & Albert Museum has already opened its Research and Collection Centre at the site.
