Theatre History

The Trafalgar Theatre was originally called the Whitehall Theatre, and was designed by Edward A Stone.

It opened on 29 September 1930 with a production of The Way To Treat a Woman by Walter Hackett.

At various points in its history it has been a cinema, TV studio, and even a museum – with Paul Raymond creating the Whitehall Theatre of War in the 70’s.

It was refurbished in 1986, reopening on 5 March 1986 with a production of J. B. Priestley’s When We Are Married. It then closed again in 2003, this time for a much more significant refurbishment, with the building reconfigured into two studio auditoriums, a main theatre and a studio space, reopening in 2004 with the RSC’s Othello.

The theatre closed again in March 2020 for major renovation by new owners Trafalgar Entertainment, to restore the venue to its original Art Deco style and remove the smaller Trafalgar Studio. It reopened in 2021.
