Welcome to the Charing Cross Theatre and the Players Bar and Kitchen. This 'hidden gem' venue has everything you will need for an unforgettable experience under one roof. Our theatre, a former victorian music hall, offers an eclectic mix of drama, musicals, comedy, cabaret and even some late night shows. Our diverse programme has something to suit every theatrical taste. 

Our Players Bar and Kitchen has developed an award winning pre-theatre menu. So whether you are intending to slip down to our own auditorium or travel to another theatre, our delicious dishes are not to be missed. The menu has been carefully crafted by our head chef and offers delicious, modern, British Cuisine. It's regularly updated to make the most of seasonal produce so there's always something new to try. 

Our venue is comprised of a 265 seater theatre, a restaurant and bar which has a late licence to 2.30am. We are a unique venue to host your conferences, product launches, parties and screenings.

We hope you enjoy your visit and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
