About Lyceum Theatre
The Lyceum Theatre in London is a long and complex tale of success, downfall and rebirth. It all started in 1772 when the Society of Arts founded a room for exhibitions and concerts near the site of the current building. Since this beginning the Lyceum has displayed a chameleon tendency, adapting to changing fashions and needs admirably. In 1996, after ten years of vacancy and decline, the Lyceum saw its sixth reincarnation. It was Apollo Leisure who stepped in and secured permission to return the theatre to its former glory. Investing over £14 million, the building was refurbished and re-opened by HRH Prince Charles on 31st October 1996, with ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’. Business continues to flourish as The Lyceum Theatre, now owned by The Ambassador Theatre Group, stages Disney’s production ‘The Lion King’. On average over 760,000 patrons enjoy the Lyceum’s hospitality every year.
