It is a venue to which all performers aspire and has hosted more annual Royal Variety Performances than any other theatre. Welcome to the official website of the London Palladium - designed by Frank Matcham - which opened on Boxing Day 1910 and became famous, partly through television, as the "Ace Variety Theatre of the World". Among the greats that have played here are Bob Hope, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, Sophie Tucker, Ethel Merman, Howard Keel, Arthur Askey, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Tommy Steele, Julie Andrews, Ken Dodd, the Two Ronnies, Bruce Forsyth and Cliff Richard.
