The Victoria Palace Theatre is one of the West End’s newly refurbished theatres. It currently stages Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Oliver and Tony Award-winning musical Hamilton. The Victoria Palace Theatre is one of Frank Matcham’s designs, opening in 1911 to become a staple in London’s West End theatre programme.
Situated on Victoria Street and opposite Victoria Station, The Victoria Palace Theatre is nestled in bustling City of Westminster borough. It has a stunning facade and elaborate foyer, and an auditorium boasting three levels; Stalls, Dress Circle and Grand Circle. It has been lovingly refurbished in recent years under the ownership of Delfont Mackintosh, who also own the Prince Edward Theatre, the Novello Theatre and several others. The Grade II listed Victoria Palace Theatre now offers more comfort and space for theatre patrons, while preserving its heritage.
The Victoria Palace’s domed auditorium seats 1,550 people. A sliding roof helps ventilate the auditorium during the intervals, which was a novelty feature in the days of heavy smoking during performances.
Now open for over a century, the Victoria Palace Theatre has welcomed huge shows. Elizabeth Taylor made her London stage debut in 1982 with The Little Foxes, while Billy Elliot the Musical opened at the Victoria Palace Theatre and immediately sold out tickets.
In hosting Hamilton, the Victoria Palace Theatre continues to show its prestige in the world of theatre. Don’t miss out on upcoming shows and ticket alerts by following the Victoria Palace Theatre here on TickX.
