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.
