In December, the Theatre welcomed over 24,000 people who attended one of 33 performances from Horrible Histories – Horrible Christmas, the BBC Concert Orchestra, Courtney Pine, Take 6, Dylan Moran, Gareth Malone, Gilbert & George, Letters Live and more.

The East Court was filled with the sound of choirs from Haringey and beyond including Alexandra Palace Chorus, London House Cats, Tottenham Singers, Alexandra Park School and Singing For The Brain. Working with Haringey Music Service, we hosted three days of performances featuring 14 different schools from the borough. In total, 900 people from all walks of life, lent their voices to the celebrations.

Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust also welcomed 62 new volunteers, who are donating their time and expertise to help keep the Park and Palace open for all.

The East Wing Restoration Project would not have been possible without the support of the National Lottery and Haringey Council.

Following the incredible opening programme, the Theatre and East Court will be closed in January for planned maintenance. Find out what’s on at London’s oldest new theatre in February and beyond at theatre.alexandrapalace.com/whats-on
