Troxy London

490 Commercial Road, E1 0HX London

Venue information

The Troxy is a striking art deco building from the outside that doesn't let up once you're on the inside either – even the carpet has an art deco fan pattern running through it.

This a stunning place to get married in (and many people do), but it's also just a fantastic, Grade II listed building that is used constantly for live music and sporting events, as well as parties.

The Troxy was designed by George Coles, the architect of many art deco cinemas in London. It featured a revolving stage, Wurlitzer organ and opulent decor with chandeliers and large sweeping staircases.

It opened in 1933, and with 3,520 seats was one of England's largest cinemas at the time. As well as showing films, it hosted live performances by popular artists such as Vera Lynn, Clark Gable and the Andrews Sisters.

The Troxy now serves as a flexible venue for events including concerts, weddings, conferences and exhibitions. It also hosts mixed martial arts events, which includes top British promotion Ultimate Challenge MMA. It accommodates up to 2,600 people depending on the type of event.
