Gielgud Theatre


The Gielgud Theatre is part of Delfont Mackintosh Theatres, which are one of the largest London theatre owners with a portfolio of seven theatres.

Delfont Mackintosh Theatres own and run the Prince Edward Theatre, the Queen’s Theatre, the Prince of Wales Theatre, refurbished in 2004 to recreate the glamour of the 1930s, and the Novello Theatre which was renovated to celebrate its centenary in 2005.

We also own the Wyndham’s and the renamed Noel Coward Theatre with the Gielgud completing the portfolio in March 2006. Major restoration of these three theatres has now been completed, demonstrating our commitment to the improvement and upgrading of all Delfont Mackintosh Theatres.

This is definitely one of the more pleasant theatres that I've been in. The decor and surroundings (everything from the wallpaper to the framed pictures on the walls to the toilets) gave an air of artistic style and pristine condition.

2 plays in week, I am a lucky man indeed. Unfortunately for this play, I went with very high expectations having been to the incredible Yelp goes to Charlie & the Chocolate Factory event the night before. A tough act to follow.
