Charing Cross Theatre

Charing Cross Theatre

Founded way back in 1936, Charing Cross Theatre (formerly the New Players Theatre) occupied several premises in the West End before locating to its present site under The Arches below Charing Cross Station.

The current site was a famous Victorian music hall that went on to produce many musicals, pantomimes, and melodramas.  

Ideally situated under the arches of Charing Cross Station, London's Charing Cross Theatre is brimming with history. Over 100 years of entertainment lives within its walls, which creates a beautifully theatrical atmosphere bursting with memories of London’s finest entertainers. 

Charing Cross Theatre strives to continue the historical spirit of the venue by entertaining audiences with many kinds of events from late-night cabarets, plays, comedy, and musicals to showcases, fashion shows and music gigs.

With its impressive historical design, it has the original Victorian bar at the back of the auditorium with the original Victorian glass panelling, creating an atmosphere that is truly one of a kind.

The theatre is perfectly complimented with a newly renovated bar and restaurant which is open until 2.30 am. The Charing Cross Theatre is a venue that hardly sleeps.
