History

The Trafalgar Studios is a West End Theatre on Whitehall, opposite Trafalgar Square.

It was renamed in 2004 to The Trafalgar Studios, since 1930, it had been the Whitehall Theatre.

It was originally famous for its comedies , but during World War II, it became famous for hosting revues, which were hugely popular at the time.

In 1942, the Whitehall Follies (which featured the first striptease in the West End!), opened to overnight success. Phyllis Dixey (who formed the group), leased the Theatre and The Follies stayed there for 5 years.

In the 50’s and 60’s the theatre hosted the famous Brian Rix ‘Whitehall Farces’.

From 1997 – 1999, the building was converted into a television/radio studio. Jack Docherty’s Talk Show and Live From London for BBC Radio 4.

The venue re-opened as a theatre in 2004 as Trafalgar Studios, part of the ATG group. It is now part of Trafalgar Entertainment Group. Trafalgar  1 has 380 seats and is designed by Tim Foster and John Muir.

In recent years, Trafalgar Studios has developed a groundbreaking international exchange programme with both Sydney Theatre Company and New York based LAByrinth Theater Company.

Please note that Touch Tours can be organised in advance (subject to availability) by contacting Trafalgar Studios Management. An Audio-Introduction for selected shows is available on Soundcloud.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

Monday 6 April: The following statement has been issued by the Society of London Theatre (SOLT) on behalf of the major commercial West End theatre operators and the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR), to provide clear information for customers with regards to their theatre bookings and help ease the unprecedented strain on box offices and ticket agents in light of the Covid 19 pandemic.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen. 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.

Theatre box office and ticket agents teams are continuing to work through the very high number of ticket orders affected by the cancellations. An average of 300,000 people a week attend West End theatres, so this a huge task. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that all our teams are now working remotely in response to government restrictions, many with reduced numbers of staff due to the virus, and this will be adding to the time it will take us to process your order.

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.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
