Sit back and enjoy electrifying performances

Navigate your way through the hustle and bustle of London’s Covent Garden, feeling the excitement build.

Located in the centre of Seven Dials, is the marvellous Cambridge Theatre - the bright screen outside proudly displaying the wonderful show you're about to watch.

There are plenty of food options for you to choose from in the local area, perfect for a family evening or even a date night.

The Crown pub opposite has plenty of history behind it and can provide you with a delicious meal before you visit the theatre.

Let the show begin!

We recommend getting there early so you can grab a programme and any merch you might want to buy.

Enter the box office, where you'll find friendly ushers who can help you find your way to the auditorium or, maybe even, the nearest ice cream kiosk.

Head to your seat so you can take in the atmosphere before the performance begins and hear the orchestra warming up in the pits below the stage.

Matilda the Musical

Cambridge Theatre is currently home to Matilda.

The musical, which has called this place home since 2011, has won seven Olivier Awards and over 90 international awards.

Kids and grown-ups will love watching the magical story written by Roald Dahl come to life before them.

The talented actors and super catchy songs make this production one to remember - quite literally, you'll be singing the songs for weeks to come!

Feel like a child again as the lyrics bring back so many memories of happy childhoods.

The history

Opened in the West End in 1930, the theatre is both classic and stylish, with a smaller auditorium, allowing a more intimate atmosphere.

Whether you’re seeing one of the world-class musicals or an original play, every person in the audience will feel close to the performance and the passion of the actors will be easily conveyed to all.

Perhaps you’ve visited the theatre before? Previous performances at the theatre have included Grease, Fame, and many others over the years.

Famous stars have also trodden the boards at the theatre, such as Audrey Hepburn, Ron Moody, Derren Brown, and Bruce Forsyth - the theatre is always home to very talented people.

How to get to the theatre

We recommend walking or taking the London Underground to get here, with the nearest tube station being Covent Garden on the Piccadilly Line or Leicester Square on the Piccadilly and Nothern Lines.

There’s also plenty of bus routes connecting the theatre to the rest of the city and if you want to drive, Q-Park Theatreland is the closest car park.

Once you've visited the theatre, we're sure you'll want to return. Keep an eye out for new performances or come back and watch the same thing again and again!
