Choose Queen's Theatre for your special occasion
Queen's Theatre is best known as one of West End, London's premiere theatre venues but few may be aware that it is also an enchanting location for special events with rooms that host and cater to corporate events, business meetings, private receptions, or as a locale for film and television recordings. Queen's Theatre tickets are available now for purchase or sale via StubHub.
The cultural legacy of London's Queen's Theatre
Much like Aldwych Theatre and its twin the Novello theatre, Queen's Theatre was built as one half of a twin bill - the other half being the Gielgud Theatre - in London's West End in 1907 and in fact all four of them were designed and built by the same legendary architect W.G.R. Sprague. A comedy, "The Sugar Bowl", was the first presentation on the Queen's Theatre playbill and for the next century it would showcase some of the brightest talents to ever grace the stage such as Sir John Gielgud, Sir Nigel Hawthorne and Fred Astaire to name but a few. Queen's Theatre is alongside Prince Edward Theatre, Theatre Royal Haymarket and Wyndham's Theatre as other West End theatrical venues. Damage from a direct hit during World War II closed its doors and it remained closed until 1959 when a GBP 250,000 reconstruction was performed allowing it to reopen later that year with Sir John Gielgud one-man Shakespearean recital which must have been a tasty treat for theatre fans.

Plan your trip for a smashing evening
Another extensive renovation occurred in 2009 which expanded Queen's Theatre to a capacity of 1,074 seats making it more user friendly to patrons while the old interior Edwardian style remained preserved. This part was significant to the legacy of this Grade II building making it more attractive as a special events venue beyond its theatrical roots. Queen's Theatre is located at Shaftesbury Avenue, London W1D 6 BA on the corner of Wardour Street and if you're driving to a performance, there is a Q-Park facility at Archer Street and an NCP location on Lexington Street. Buses 14, 19 and 38 provide service to the venue or you can hop on the London Underground to Piccadilly Circus which will place you a short walk away while National Rail service stops at Charing Cross station. As a little walking is required it's a great idea to check online for transit schedules so you won't miss the raising of the curtain.
