The deliciously frilly and ornate columned and arched Gielgud theatre takes pride of place on Shaftesbury Avenue, on the corner of Rupert Street, and includes three smart licensed bars. Designed by W.G.R. Sprague, who created a host of beautiful West End theatres in his time, it opened in 1906 as the Hicks Theatre. In 1909 it was renamed the Globe Theatre, producing smash hits like the infamous 1966 play There's a Girl in My Soup, which ran for just under 3 years. The venue’s longest run was Daisy Pulls It Off, clocking up an impressive 1,180 performances. You may have heard of the theatre’s cat, named Beerbohm, who enjoyed a front page obituary in The Stage in 1995! Refurbished beautifully in ’87 and again in 2008, it is most famous for its Alan Ayckbourn premieres. When Shakespeare’s Globe was reconstructed in 1994 the venue finally became the Gielgud Theatre.
