Charing Cross TheatreWith just 275 seats, the Charing Cross Theatre is one of the smallest in the West End. Tucked away under the arches beneath Charing Cross station, this Off-Broadway style theatre, which was rebuilt in 1989, is renowned for its intimate productions and cosy auditorium and is fast becoming a favourite amongst seasoned theatre-goers. The theatre space is one of the few in the West End licensed to serve alcohol, boasting a built-in Victorian bar within the auditorium. There is also restaurant owned and operated by The Pure Group, whilst the whole venue can be hired out for screenings, conferences of corporate hire and The New Players Comedy Sundae presents a weekly comedy event.
