On Sat 29 June, as part of Kensington and Chelsea’s Arts Weekend, the Coronet Theatre is offering tours of the uniquely interesting Grade II-listed late Victorian theatre.
Opened in 1898, and designed by major West End theatre architect WGR Sprague, The Coronet is a precious survival, thankfully back in use as a live theatre. Although much decayed (now arrested), the theatre has been decked out in a charming bohemian style which befits its surviving decoration. The current 200-seat main auditorium occupies the original Dress Circle, with the original stalls area below repurposed as a large, eclectically-decorated bar area and an adjacent 90-seat studio space..
Any chance to look around this faded beauty should be seized with both hands. Tours are scheduled to last up to 20 minutes and run every half hour at 12.00 noon , 12.30pm, 1.00pm, 1.30pm and 2.00pm. The Coronet is a minute’s walk from Notting Hill Tube station.
Although you can just turn up for the tours, there is a booking option too which can be accessed via the KCAW link below.
