Welcome to Kanneltalo

Kanneltalo is a robust theatre and concert building located right next to Kannelmäki train station, a 13-minute train drive away from Helsinki Central Railway Station. Kanneltalo’s hall is used to host several premiere performances and a wide range of visiting events every year. In addition to a performance venue, Kanneltalo also serves as the shared living room of the residents of the Kaarela area. The pleasant lobby has space for simply hanging around, the high gallery invites visitors to enjoy changing exhibitions and the café is used to hold free-of-charge performances and events. The building also houses a library, an adult education centre and a youth centre.
