Back in the 1870’s Alexandra Palace Theatre was a vibrant, well-attended place for pantomime, opera, drama and ballet. The stage machinery enabled actors and performers to fly across the stage. Sadly, over the years, the sparkling lights of London’s West End drowned out the call to Alexandra Palace and the theatre slowly disappeared from view, reinventing itself as a cinema, chapel, music hall and even a humble storage room before it finally closed. It remained closed for some 80yrs and now with the help of many enuthusiasts, it is being restored to its former glory and is open for business as it was always intended, as a theatre.
