Andrew Lloyd Webber unveils London Palladium Wall of Fame

Published 15 October 2018

Andrew Lloyd Webber, together with honoured artists Des O’Connor, Jimmy Tarbuck, Cliff Richard and Tommy Steele, today unveiled the Wall of Fame at the London Palladium.

Located at the theatre’s world famous Stage Door on Great Marlborough Street, this new art installation by Lee Simmons will serve as a permanent legacy to the many artists that have headlined at The London Palladium and will provide an intrinsic link between icons of the past and performers of the future.

Further honoured artists depicted on the installation as chosen by an advisory committee of Don Black, Michael Grade and Laurie Mansfield are Arthur Askey, Ronnie Barker, Shirley Bassey, Jack Benny, Cilla Black, Max Bygraves, Nat King Cole, Ronnie Corbett, The Crazy Gang, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis Jr, Ken Dodd, Gracie Fields, Bruce Forsyth, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, Tom Jones, Danny Kaye, Marie Lloyd, Vera Lynn, Liberace, Max Miller, Johnnie Ray, Tommy Trinder, Frankie Vaughan and Norman Wisdom.

Andrew Lloyd Webber said “As part of the theatre’s ongoing refurbishment the opportunity arose to create a Wall of Fame and I am delighted that young artist Lee Simmons agreed to create what is a wonderful tribute to many of the Palladium’s performers throughout its 108 year history.

“The London Palladium is a very special theatre for me as it is to millions of people around the world and I hope that our new installation will give as much pleasure to locals and visitors to the West End as it has us.”

The Palladium will host pantomime once again this Christmas – Snow White, with a cast starring Dawn French, Charlie Stemp and Julian Clary, begins performances 8 December.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
