Originally opening in 1930, the Apollo Victoria theatre has since become a home for musical theatre after The Sound of Music took to the stage there in the early 1980s.
Now, listed as a grade II building, the Apollo Victoria theatre has an unmistakable design and a Art Deco-style interior which is a pleasure to behold and adds to the ambience of the theatre experience. After a recent restoration, the Apollo Victoria theatre became the first theatre to be entirely lit by LED lighting, with some 88,000 LED lights supplying the lighting for the auditorium.
