About London Coliseum
The London Coliseum was built by the theatrical architect Frank Matcham who intended it to be one of London's largest and most luxurious "family" variety theatres.
Construction started in 1903 and it opened on 24 December the following year as the London Coliseum Theatre of Varieties.
ENO runs an access scheme which entitles people with a disability to purchase tickets at half-price (subject to availability) and to receive free mailings and priority booking.
