The Coronet Theatre Tour
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
To mark Kensington + Chelsea Art Weekend, we are flinging open our doors and offering free guided tours of Notting Hill’s iconic theatre.
The Coronet Theatre started life in 1898, designed by WGR Sprague, architect of many of the West End’s most beautiful theatres. Edward VII often visited, Ellen Terry and Sarah Bernhardt trod its boards, and it was where John Gielgud saw his first Shakespeare play.
In 1923 it became the much-loved Coronet Cinema but was increasingly neglected until taken over by Anda Winters in 2014. As it is gradually restored, today the building combines grand architecture with an intimate and warm setting, including candlelit hallways, antique décor, stage props and the most beautiful theatre bar in London.
Tours start every 30 minutes from 12:00pm – 2:00pm and last for up to 20 minutes. No need to book, just turn up.
Due to the nature of our historic Grade II listed building, unfortunately The Coronet Theatre is not currently wheelchair accessible. If you have a specific access requirement, please contact us on 020 3642 6606 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help you.
