New Wimbledon TheatreNew Wimbledon Theatre opened in 1910 and is housed in a beautiful Grade II listed building. Its opening production was the pantomime 'Jack and Jill' and The Times gave it a glowing review - "For beauty and size Wimbledon Theatre would not disgrace Shaftesbury Avenue". The theatre was extremely successful in the 1920s and 1930s, when Gracie Fields, Sybil Thorndike, Ivor Novello, and Noel Coward graced its stage. Today, the theatre also includes the smaller New Wimbledon Studio, which holds 70 people. The venue is frequently hired out to television production, and 'Little Britain' and 'The Bill' have both filmed here.
