What’s On at New Wimbledon Theatre
From the second half of 2023 and into 2024, events at New Wimbledon Theatre are a fun mix of musicals, one-night-only tribute acts and comedy, and light entertainment. Families looking to keep kids occupied - or anyone who feels young at heart - should book tickets to the annual panto in December and January. Cinderella features Craig Revel Horwood as the wicked stepmother, so get ready to boo!
Adults can also enjoy some feel-good musicals as we head into the new year: Pretty Woman will sweep you off your feet just in time for Valentine's Day in February, while Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is nostalgic fun in May.
Finally, get your culture fix with some of the biggest names in the business! Ian McKellen takes on Shakespeare’s Falstaff in Player Kings ahead of its West End season, and it’s a great year for Andrew Lloyd Webber fans as The Wizard of Oz and Jesus Christ Superstar are both visiting on tour.
About the New Wimbledon Theatre
The New Wimbledon Theatre first opened in 1910 in South West London. It is a beautiful Grade II listed Edwardian building and after being refurbished twice, retains its original baroque features.
With a seating capacity of 1,670, the New Wimbledon is the eighth largest theatre in London and has often been used to premiere new musicals before they transfer to the West End. The inter-war and post-war years were hugely successful, and hit shows which first opened at the venue include Lionel Bart’s Oliver! and Half a Sixpence starring Tommy Steele. The theatre has also been a popular filming location, with annual televised Christmas pantomimes such as 2002’s Dick Whittington previously airing on the BBC and ITV.
After falling into financial difficulties in 2003, the New Wimbledon Theatre came under the management of Ambassador Theatre Group. Now well known for delivering a range of family events, touring musicals and an annual pantomime (previous guest stars include Jo Brand, Pamela Anderson and Ross Kemp), it remains one of the most prolific venues in London.
