Victorian Theatre at Alexandra Palace

About this space

Originally opened in 1875, it was a place of spectacle and delight, where audiences were entertained by pantomime, opera, drama, ballet and music hall. For the past 80 years it has not hosted regular events and has been hidden from the public.
From December 2018 the Theatre and its Foyer will be available for hire as a unique event space following a multi-million pound restoration. The Theatre will lend itself perfectly to all types of events; from award ceremonies and gala dinners to product launches and conferences. The Theatre can be used as a standalone room or in conjunction with our other room for bigger events.

The space will maintain its original, arrested decay look whilst having all the upgrades and fittings for events that would require high levels of production. The Theatre’s seating is flexible with fully retractable seating and can be modified for a number of configurations including: theatre style (800 capacity), banqueting (340 capacity), cabaret (240 capacity), standing reception (1,000 capacity) and standing concert (1,300 capacity).
