Louise Stewart, CEO of Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust, said:
“This project has achieved so much for the Palace, not just the physical restoration but our ability to engage new audiences and deliver a broader spectrum of entertainment. None of this would have been possible without the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Haringey Council, Trusts and Foundations and the thousands of donations from the public. We are delighted with the audience response. December was an incredible showcase for the building, our team and our Creative Learning programme. There is much more to come in 2019 and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to London’s oldest new theatre.”
Following the incredible opening programme, the Theatre and East Court will be closed in January for planned maintenance. Find out what’s on at London’s oldest new theatre in February and beyond at alexandrapalace.com/theatre/whats-on/
Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
