News: Trafalgar Entertainment agrees lease of major new London theatre

Trafalgar Entertainment have announced a brand new, 70-year lease of Olympia Theatre, the largest new permanent theatre build of its kind to open since the National Theatre in 1976.

A 1,575-seat theatre, the agreement comes as part of a broader ambition by Trafalgar Entertainment to create a venue of national stature as the UK emerges into a new era.

Like its neighbour, the Royal Albert Hall, Olympia Theatre is set to become an iconic venue for the 21st century.

The Olympia venue breaks new ground in theatre design with a stunning, state-of-the-art auditorium at its heart, designed by award-winning theatre architects, Haworth Tompkins. Informed by Trafalgar Entertainment’s unique experience of theatre operation and the complex demands of modern productions, the theatre offers the very latest innovations in technical facilities.

A stacked auditorium means every comfortable seat will feel close to the stage, and audiences can additionally enjoy the highest standards of ventilation throughout the theatre.

Spacious, glazed front-of-house areas offer far-reaching views across London, making a visit to the theatre a uniquely memorable experience. Visitors will enjoy top class bar, hospitality and VIP facilities, reinforcing the central role of this new landmark theatre in anchoring the wider Olympia redevelopment.

Currently under construction, the Olympia Theatre is scheduled to open in mid-late 2025.
