London’s Oldest NEW Theatre to Re-Open in December 2018
The theatre at Alexandra Palace has undergone an extensive multimillion pound restoration with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Haringey Council and will officially re-open in December 2018.
Originally opened in 1875 with a string of spectacular productions, the Theatre went on to be used as a chapel, cinema and later a BBC prop store and workshop. It has not been used for regular performances for over 80 years. December’s opening programme is a nod to the Theatre’s variety and music hall roots, a home for both art and light entertainment, as well as reflecting the importance of family theatre.

Louise Stewart, Chief Executive of APPCT, said: “Reaching this point is a testament to the dedication of the team at the Palace, our partners and our funders. Without them this work would not have been possible. The re-opening of the Theatre and East Court is a major step forward in our mission to bring areas of the Park and Palace back to life and strengthen our audiences’ connection to our unrivalled history. We look forward to welcoming new audiences and supporters and sharing the Palace’s hugely exciting journey.”
