The story of Alexandra Palace Theatre is truly unique. Opened in 1875, the Theatre was a place of spectacle and delight where audiences of up to 3,000 people were entertained by pantomime, opera, drama and ballet. It then went on to be used as a cinema, a chapel and the home of music hall stars before a spell as a BBC prop store and workshop.
Now, 80 years after the doors to the Theatre were closed to the public, it is once again filled with the sound of music, laughter and applause. In December 2018 we reopened the Theatre following the completion of the East Wing Restoration project – ready to be discovered by a new generation.
Join us on a tour of our Theatre to explore the story and heritage of this beautiful space.
