Victoria Palace Theatre
The Frank Matcham designed Victoria Palace Theatre was opened in 1910. The auditorium holds 1550 seats. There is a gilded statue of prima ballerina Anna Pavlova poised above it. This was owner Alfred Butt's homage to the dancer he had spectacularly introduced to London. The original statue was taken down for safety reasons in 1939 before the blitz and has completely disappeared. In 2006, a replica of the original statue of Pavlova was reinstated to its original place above the cupola of the theatre.
