About us

One Stop Arts is an independent arts listings and reviews website for London – and we’re passionate about the arts. We list and review the capital’s cultural headliners, as well as drawing attention to the smaller, cutting-edge events that rarely reach the mainstream media. We aim to offer an insider view into London culture through easily accessible listings and well-written, carefully considered opinions and analysis.

Our writers combine experience with passion, and we hope their honest, detailed and individual insights inspire our site visitors to attend a wide variety of events, from major art exhibitions, West End theatre or symphony concerts to fringe events. We ensure listings are attached to reviews to make it easy and quick to find more information about the events that we recommend each week.

One Stop Arts believes that breadth of London’s culture scene is its greatest attraction, and at a time when arts organisations are struggling to survive, we hope to encourage readers to explore the wide range of culture London has to offer.

The founders of One Stop Arts, David and Alison Karlin, are also the founders of Bachtrack, which started in 2008 and is now the leading classical concert finder in the world. One Stop Arts shares all of Bachtrack’s classical, opera and dance content – which means that our coverage here is second to none.
