Venue overview

The Apollo Theatre opened in 1901, with an aim to present light musical comedies. Now, the venue sees a high turnover of both plays and musicals throughout the year.

Constructed in a French Renaissance style, the theatre is opulently decorated, with a distinct lack of support pillars. In 2013, the Balcony collapsed during a performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and has since been removed.

A relatively intimate theatre of 658 seats, the auditorium is divided between three floors. There are excellent views throughout the theatre, with very limited overhang from higher tiers and steep rakes throughout.

Good value seats

The front row of the Grand Circle is often reduced, and although it is quite high you can see the action very well. The best seats are one row behind in seats B15-18, as they do not have restrictions from the lighting equipment. Otherwise, sit towards the rear of the Stalls for a great view of the entire stage on a budget.

Premium seats

The Stalls provides excellent views of the stage throughout, even towards the rear of the seating. Sit in the front section of either the Stalls or the Dress Circle for an immersive experience.

Fantastic seats in the rear stalls, don’t be put off by how far back they are as you get an amazing view of the stage! Seats can get quite uncomfortable as they are hard. Seats are on a good rake so are able to see the entirety of the stage and all the... More

Very squished legroom - wouldn't recommend for anyone over 6'. Despite this, all of the performance space could be seen. The only obstruction to the view was the black box at the top covering the heads of the band but you could still see them there. More
