About the London Palladium

The London Palladium is one of the most prestigious performance venues in the world and has played host to many legendary stars, including The Beatles, Judy Garland, Bruce Forsyth and Adele. The Palladium was designed by renowned theatre architect Frank Matcham and boasts beautiful period architecture, most of which has been retained today.

Pantomime has been associated with the venue since it opened in 1910 and some of the biggest stars of the day have performed in the annual Christmas tradition, such as Julie Andrews in Cinderella and Tommy Cooper in Robinson Crusoe. The Panto tradition was revived at the Palladium in 2016, following a 20-year break with an all-star cast including Paul O'Grady, Julian Clary and Dawn French.

Owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber's LW Theatres, the London Palladium sees a wide variety of musicals and one-off concerts and events performed on its vast stage. Notable productions have included Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The King & I, The Sound of Music and The Wizard of Oz. The Palladium is also regularly used to record television specials, such as The Royal Variety Show, BAFTA Awards and Britain's Got Talent.
