We have nine theatres available for hire across the West End, from the smaller capacity Fortune theatre which seats an intimate 430, right through to the impressive Apollo Victoria, which seats 2,300. All of our theatres are decorated to very high standards, and range in style from Victorian, to Art Deco, to Modern.
Whilst we have scheduled performances all year round in our venues, we are able to accommodate some hires mid week or on theatres ‘dark’ days. Hirers will work around the current production’s use of the theatre upon agreement from that producer. In almost all cases lighting, sound and other technical equipment is hired from the residing production.
Our theatres are available for some weekday hire with the exception of matinee days when the theatre is not available for hire. The majority of our theatres are available for hire all day and evening on Sundays, with the exception of the Lyceum Theatre, which is available all day and evening on Mondays.
Hirers must use our own technical and front of house staff to ensure that proper health and safety standards are maintained within the building.
The set will also be that of the resident show so hirers will have to work round elements of the current show’s set on stage. In some cases where the set for a particular production is very prohibitive, this will mean the venue is not available for hire.
The number and flexibility of our spaces means that we are able to accommodate a range of hires, so if you can’t see your event-type listed on the website, please do get in touch.
