Opened in 1910, the Off-West End theatre has been an iconic landmark in the Wimbledon Town Centre for over a century. The venue has survived two wars and several renovations, providing respite with premiere hit shows like Lionel Bart’s Oliver! and Half a Sixpence. It also often doubled up as a popular filming location, being the home to several televised pantomimes like Aladdin and Robin Hood.

Despite falling into crisis in 2003, the venue quickly got back on its feet and regained its position as a popular family entertainment hotspot. Every year, the 'home of London pantomime' hosts its beloved signature Christmas shows, with many guest stars like Pamela Anderson and Ross Kemp gracing the stage. The venue has proudly embraced its roots as more than a century earlier, the theater was also inaugurated with a pantomime production of Jack & Jill.
