London Palladium a venue to which all performers aspire and has hosted more annual Royal Variety Performances than any other theatre. Welcome to the official website of the London Palladium – designed by Frank Matcham – which opened on Boxing Day 1910 and became famous, partly through television, as the “Ace Variety Theatre of the World”.
The London Palladium opened on Boxing Day 1910 with the first ‘grand variety bill’ featuring acts as diverse as Nellie Wallace and classical actor Martin Harvey. The Frank Matcham designed building occupies a site which was previously home to a Corinthian Bazaar, Hengler’s Grand Cirque and the National Ice Skating Palace.
The nearest underground station is Oxford Circus (Central, Victoria and Bakerloo lines) and Bond Street (Central and Jubilee Lines).

After over 20 years, in November 2014 the London Palladium received brand new boilers. The works took 3 weeks to complete and took place during the get in of CATs to avoid any audience disruption. The old system was ripped out and all new parts were installed; everything from the pipe works to new values and controls.
