Hello from a new member, the Friends of Alexandra Palace Theatre.  As you may know, the Palace's Victorian theatre, tucked away behind the Ice Rink, is being restored.  In the next year, it will reopen. For the theatre's history and the latest news on the restoration, the Friends have a YouTube page - New videos are being added every so often, so plese take a look and enable the 'subscribe' function so you'll know when there's something new.

We're also on Facebook ( and have a webpage, too ( If you want to join us as a Friend, it's not expensive - As a Friend, you will be kept bang up to date on what's going on and will be contributing to the fundraising still needed to complete the restoration work. 

In the meantime, we'll use this site to keep you informed as well, if you're happy for us to do that.  When the theatre eventually re-opens, we'll all have something to be really proud of on our doorsteps!


I'm Richard Smith and I'd be happy to answer any questions you have - and even happier if you are able to share the videos and messages with your friends and contacts.

  • Thanks Richard - I'm really keen for regular updates on the theatre regeneration and wonder if you can post some pictures? I've noticed that the first new windows have gone in and look really great. I can't wait to see further progress!


    • I have attached a couple of very recent pictures from inside the theatre - one showing the mass of scaffolding in the auditorium and another up close and personal with the restoration work on the ceiling. We'll post some more on the Theatre Friends Facebook page, too.
