Lyceum Theatre

Inextricably tied to Covent Garden, the Lyceum’s rich and complex history began in 1772 and incorporates success and failure, disastrous fires and grand re-births. The current building opened in 1907, although its wonderfully grand portico dates back to an earlier incarnation.

The theatre has hosted legendary actors such as Henry Irving, Sarah Bernhardt and John Gielgud, live performances by The Clash, Bob Marley, The Smiths, John Lennon and Joy Division, and a whole host of swimsuit-clad contestants in the Miss World competition. Since 1999, it has provided a Covent Garden home for The Lion King.
