Exterior of St. Martin's Theatre Following the extensive interior refurbishment over the last few years the St Martin's has recently undergone a major exterior refurbishment. The outside has been restored to its former glory.
A replica of the original 1916 canopy was constructed in Cheshire and put in place in February 1998. The whole of the exterior has been repaired and repainted.
This beautiful building is one of the few West End theatres that is still privately owned. If it were a car it would be very saleable indeed: One owner, full service history, excellent runner, lovingly restored, immaculate inside and out!
This is the auditorium of St Martin's today. All woodwork has been restored, silk wallpaper has been hung throughout the auditorium and the seats are all newly upholstered. The stage curtains (or "house tabs" as they are known in the trade!), were also replaced along with the Willoughby de Broke family coat of arms.
Currently there are no events for the St. Martin's Theatre London .
