Alexandra Palace

Monday 12 March — Sold out
2pm to about 3pm. A behind-the-scenes visit, including a hardhat tour of the Victorian theatre which has been closed to the public for over 80 years. It opened in 1875 and is a true hidden gem, one of few surviving theatres of its kind.

It is currently undergoing restoration funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Haringey Council and is scheduled to reopen in September 2018. Led by staff at Alexandra Palace, you will also enjoy a tour of other spaces in the Palace and learn more about the fascinating history of this very special building. Safety clothing will be provided. Visitors should wear sturdy, closed-toe footwear. As the theatre is currently a building site, we regret this tour is not suitable for wheelchair users or those who have difficulty walking. Rail: Alexandra Palace; tube: Wood Green (Piccadilly line). The W3 bus runs regularly from Alexandra Palace railway station, and also Wood Green and Finsbury Park stations. Alight at the Palm Court Entrance, Alexandra Palace. Limited numbers. £25 including tea/coffee and biscuits. Booking required.**

Event code: 1805

Later event: Supper lecture: Some like it (very) hot: the Victorian Turkish bath
Earlier event: Pub crawl of Cricklewood and Kilburn
