Palladium Theatre London
Introduction about the theatre
Designed in the grand Edwardian style architecture, Palladium Theatre London is an architectural grandeur. The theatre opened on 26th December 1910 and since then because of performances by some iconic stars and for hosting performances of versatile musical shows, it is often credited as London’s most famous theatre.
The Palladium Theatre was built in 1910 by Walter Gibbons, an early moving picture manager. The theatre was built with the vision to compete with Edward Moss's London Hippodrome and Oswald Stoll's London Coliseum. The facade of the venue was initially a part of the Argyll house and its existence goes beyond to the nineteenth century.The house was initially a provisional wooden building called Corinthian Bazaar, had an incorporated aviary and was erected as an alternative to the Pantheon Bazaar that was shut down recently.
The following year, Palladium Theatre London was reconstructed by Fredrcik Hengler as a venue for hosting circus and had an aquatic display in a flooded ring. Then it was transformed into the National Skating Palace, but the idea turned out to be a failure irrespective of the venue being designed as a skating rink with presence of original ice. It was redesigned by Frank Matcham, the man who was also behind the splendid designs of the coliseum.
The charms that makes it special
Even though the Palladium Theatre London underwent many changes since its inaugural days it still holds some of its charms in their pristine state. The features have taken the theatre to Grade II listing in September 1960, done by the English Heritage.The house during its initial days had installed its personal telephone system that allowed that those occupying the boxes to call each other. Along with this, it also had a stage that could revolve!
