Leicester Square Theatre runs a programme of comedy, cabaret, dance, music and theatre. The 400 seat theatre boasts 2 bars and a second intimate Lounge Theatre with a capacity of up to 70 with its own bar and cabaret-style seating.
The theatre was reopened by Lesley Ackland and Martin Witts in August 2008, establishing itself as one of London’s foremost comedy venues. The theatre has an illustrious history as a live music venue. The Rolling Stones played there along with The Who and The Sex Pistols. The Clash previewed their “London Calling” material there in 1979 before recording the seminal album the following month.
