Theatre History

The site of the London Palladium has seen a number of entertainment venues over the years.

1870 saw the opening of a temporary structure hosting The Corinthian Bazaar, which featured an aviary.

Then a new building opened in 1871 by Fredrick Hengler, the son of a tightrope walker, as a circus arena for entertainments called Hengler’s Grand Cirque, which in 1896 became the National Skating Palace – with real ice!

The building was then renamed as the Royal Italian Circus in 1905, before finally being demolished.

The London Palladium we know today was designed by famous theatre architect Frank Matcham, and opened on 26 December 1910 with a variety show and one act play called The Conspiracy.
