Vaudeville Theatre

The original theatre on this site was designed by C J Phipps and opened on 16 April 1870. The theatre then closed on 7 November 1925 when the interior was completely reconstructed to designs by Robert Atkins – the auditorium was changed from a horseshoe shape to the current rectangle shape – reopening on 23 February 1926. A small wood-panelled foyer with ornate cream and gold ceiling now welcomes Theatreland’s varied audience to the Vaudeville Theatre. More Information
