Edwardian splendour at Aldwych Theatre

Set in the heart of London theatreland behind The Strand, this stunning Edwardian theatre dates from 1905. Closed for refurbishment in the summer of 2017, the newly opened theatre is sure to wow audiences even more after being fitted with a multi-million-pound makeover to restore its original grandeur. The Aldwych has been home to some of theatre history's most renowned performers, with Vivien Leigh treading these boards in the famous 1949 production of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by her husband Laurence Olivier. More recent productions include Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.
