Covent Garden is rich in history and culture and as Capco invests, transforms and maintains the area, we ensure we protect its heritage and the unique cultural experience.

Covent Garden has always been synonymous with theatre and performance, with new experiences to enjoy every time people visit. The  world-famous Royal Opera House and 40 West End theatres are among the many vibrant venues in the neighbourhood. The Covent Garden Piazza itself becomes an open-air theatre every day with music, comedy and entertainment thanks to the world-renowned street performers.

 

Our creative marketing strategy supports the existing cultural mix by animating the Piazza with a calendar of activities throughout the year, particularly in the run-up to Christmas.

Capco hosts numerous public art commissions, including Jeff Koons’ giant inflatable rabbit in the Market Building and a live spin-painting day on the Piazza with Damien Hirst. Recent installations include Alex Chinneck’s artistic illusion, magically making part of the building float ten feet in the air, and Charles Pétillon’s ‘Heartbeat’, filling the Market Building with 100,000 glowing white balloons which represented Covent Garden as the beating heart of London.
