If you’re planning a trip out in London and are thinking of booking Wicked Apollo Theatre tickets, you might well be interested to find out a bit more about this iconic venue in the city, which actually began life as a state-of-the-art cinema way back in 1929, a time when the talkies were really growing in popularity.
The Art Deco style of the building has been preserved, so you’re sure to enjoy having a look around and about, and the New Victoria Cinema – as it was then known – soon became very well known as a place to watch big band shows, variety performances and films. It was later closed in 1975 and reopened as the New Victoria Theatre, with greater emphasis on musicals, hosting all sorts of shows during the ‘70s and ‘80s including Camelot, The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof and Starlight Express.
If you’re wondering how best to get to the theatre, you’ll definitely be pleased to hear that it has excellent transport links nearby and, even better, there are lots of London hotspots right on its doorstep if you’re keen to explore parts of the city on your day out. Keep an eye out for Westminster Cathedral, which is nearby.
It’s within walking distance of Victoria tube station as well as the bus station so getting to and from the theatre couldn’t be easier – brilliant if you’re new to the city and are a bit unsure of how to get from A to B.
