Located just a stone’s throw away from iconic London landmarks including Nelson’s Column and the National Gallery, Trafalgar Theatre is known for exciting, bold new work in the West End. From Jamie Lloyd to Robert Icke, this Grade II listed building has attracted the biggest and brightest names in contemporary theatre.
The attractive Art Deco venue first opened as the Whitehall Theatre in the 1930s, and soon became a hub for comedies, farces and revues. After a stint as a television studio in the 1990s, the newly christened Trafalgar Studios opened in 2004. The two-studio venue, designed by Tim Foster and John Muir, became the first of its kind in central London.
From 2004 to 2020, Trafalgar Studios was a magnet for some of the UK’s best theatrical talent. Fringe theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company shows and National Theatre successes have all transferred to the venue. Most notably, the acclaimed Trafalgar Transformed project saw director Jamie Lloyd’s name became synonymous with Trafalgar Studios; his projects at the theatre include The Ruling Class and Macbeth with James McAvoy and The Maids starring Zawe Ashton and Uzo Aduba.
In 2020, it was announced that Trafalgar Studios would re-open in 2021 as Trafalgar Theatre, with plans for Studio 1 and Studio 2 to be restored as one larger venue. The project involved reinstating heritage design features and improving seating, access and customer experience throughout.
Good value seats
The middle rows of the Dress Circle tend to be a little cheaper than premium, but benefit from a decent rake and clear views of the stage. In the Stalls, sitting a few seats to the side or further back from premium will save a bit of money without compromising on experience.
Rows D to H in the middle section of the Stalls offer excellent, central and intimate views for those wanting an intimate experience. Rows A to C in the Dress Circle are also excellent, with an elevated, well-raked position perfect for getting an overview of the action below.
