There has been a theatre on this site since 1832. Originally Moy’s Music Hall, this was renamed in 1863 and became The Royal Standard Music Hall. In 1886, when Victoria Street and Victoria Station were built, the theatre was demolished and the rebuilt Royal Standard Music Hall became the most comfortable hall of entertainment in London with no expense spared.
With the arrival of electricity the oldest licensed music hall in London was demolished to introduce new technology in 1910. Frank Matcham's Victoria Palace cost the then huge sum of £12,000 to build.
Originally the Stalls, Dress Circle and Grand Circle each had their own entrance and their own box office selling pre-printed tickets from a paper plan.
From 1911, the Victoria Palace had a gilded statue of prima ballerina Anna Pavlova poised above it. This was owner Alfred Butt's homage to the dancer he had introduced to London.
The tribute was not appreciated by the superstitious ballerina, who would never look at her image as she passed the theatre, drawing the blinds in her car. The original statue was taken down for safety reasons in 1939 before the blitz and has completely disappeared. The Victoria Palace moved into the new millennium with an adventurous building programme, enlarging the Foyer and increasing the dressing room space, whilst maintaining all the feel and character of a historic building.
In 2006, a replica of the original statue of Pavlova was reinstated to its original place above the cupola of the Victoria Palace and her gold-leafed figure once again gleams atop.
