Alexandra Palace Theatre

Restoration of the proscenium arch

The theatre opened in 1875 as part of the rebuilt Alexandra Palace, the Victorian theatre was equipped with the latest in stage machinery and technology. The rebuilt theatre was designed to bring "wonder and spectacle" to its audience. After a second fire and long periods of closure, the theatre had been untouched since its last professional use in the 1930s. Restoration kept a light touch, preserving the evocative Victorian interior. HOLT gave a grant towards restoring the statues of Thalia and Melpomene either side of the proscenium, and the restoration of the proscenium itself.
