Restored in 2018 after being closed for eight decades, there will be a couple of weeks worth of tours of the Alexandra Palace theatre.

Initially opened in 1875, this historical venue witnessed a myriad of performances, from grand operas to riveting plays and musical spectacles, but closed in 1935. Following a five-year multi-million-pound restoration project, the theatre emerged from its decades-long slumber, reopening its doors to audiences in 2018.

Preserved in a beautiful state of arrested decay and frozen in time, the restoration created a space with the charm and character of the Victorian theatre while being fit to host cutting-edge contemporary productions.

The Ally Pally will run a series of one-hour tours of the preserved theatre next month, from 20th to 31st January, and tickets are on sale from here.

Tickets cost £15 per person for the standard tour, or you can add afternoon tea as well, and tickets for tea and tour are £35.50 from here.

The venue is a short walk from Alexandra Palace rail station – trains from Moorgate and King’s Cross, or a short bus ride from Wood Green tube station on the Piccadilly line.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
