Apollo Theatre

Apollo Theatre

Visit a classical West End theatre

After a busy day sightseeing in London, it's time to head to the beautiful Apollo Theatre, near Piccadilly Circus in London’s West End.

Designed for musical entertainment, the theatre takes its name from the Greek god of music and poetry.

First opening its doors in February 1901, the Apollo became the fourth theatre to be built on Shaftesbury Avenue.

An inspirational place for London entertainment, the Apollo Theatre is a fantastic venue for brand-new performances, musicals, and comedies.

Immerse yourself in the magic

Your eyes will widen as you step inside the Apollo and notice the details of the striking classical design combined with elegant accent lighting.

This place has hosted many marvellous shows such as Rain Man, The Glass Menagerie and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and big names like Vanessa Redgrave, Peter O'Toole, and Mark Rylance have waited eagerly in the wings for their moment on these boards.

Pull up a chair and relax at one of their bars in the Stalls or Upper Circle before you prepare to take your seat in the auditorium, ready for the lights to dim and the curtain to go up.

Shows for all ages

Get comfy on one of the velvet chairs and hear the applause from your fellow theatregoers as you enjoy musicals inspired by true stories, such as Everybody's Talking About Jamie.

Kids will love watching their favourite shows come to life before their eyes, with talented casts bringing fantastic productions to the stage. Maybe they'll even get a signature from their heroes at the stage door.

Pick up a programme to take home with you and we're sure you'll forever remember a trip to the theatre, especially one as beautiful and opulent as the Apollo.
