Venue information

Venue Information

The Eventim Apollo, formerly the Hammersmith Apollo, is one of London’s major live entertainment venues. It is located in Hammersmith, West London and is one of the UK’s largest and best-preserved original theatres.

Designed by Robert Cromie in Art Deco style, the venue opened in 1932 as the Gaumont Palace Cinema, being renamed the Hammersmith Odeon in 1962. It became a Grade II listed building in 1990. The fully restored Compton organ, used in its cinema days in the 1930s, is still found at the Eventim Apollo which has also become a favourite place for massive live comedy shows.

Highlights from the Eventim Apollo's glittering history include 38 Beatles gigs from 1964-1965, David Bowie's last gig as Ziggy Stardust in 1973 and several concerts by Queen in the late 1970's.The venue has also starred in various music DVDs from the likes of Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Kings Of Leon.

Aside from music the Eventim Apollo hosts a top-notch line-up of comedy, dance and kids shows from the biggest and best names in the business, from Riverdance to Russell Brand to SpongeBob SquarePants. It is also the eponymous venue in the BBC stand-up comedy series Live at the Apollo.

With a mixed standing and seated capacity of over 3,500, and 5,000 for all standing, the Eventim Apollo remains one of London’s legendary venues. Eventim is the official ticket retailer for the venue.

Selected reviews for this venue:

Marie, 01/10/17
I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff. I am disabled and the tickets I managed to get for my favourite comic were up in the circle when I got there my son asked if there was an easier way to get up there and unexpectedly they changed our tickets for ones near the front it was a fantastic night thank you so much.
KingstonBear, 21/08/17
I attended the venue on 19th of August to see Johnny Clegg, I booked a wheelchair space and Carers ticket and was granted permission by the manager for my Assistance dog Kingston to stay with me in the auditorium (Kingston wore ear defenders for the concert) . All the staff were wonderful and extremely helpful and attentive. Gareth checked on us on a regular basis . I had a truly wonderful night and made some new friends with a lovely couple we sat next too. The staff are all very friendly, and curteous and make your visit one to remember . Im planning my next visit .
Doug, 17/02/15
So easy to get to, great acoustics, friendly staff. And the bar prices were not to bad either. Noticed disabled access was good too, so would consider bringing wheelchair bound pals.
Elbow (17/02/15) - Fantastic gig, great venue
Saw Elbow for my first time, at my first visit to Hammersmith Eventim Apollo. Wont be my last time at either. The band were superb, and Guy Garveys laid back banter had the crowd in the palm of his hands. Vocally and musically superb - personal highlights were Grounds for Divorce, Lippy Kids and Sad Captain. Have seen a few great gigs over the years, and this is up in my top 3. Support act were good too, set us up for the main event rather nicely.

Parking in the Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham

Hammersmith & Fulham Council is a dedicated participant in the European Blue Badge Scheme. As long as you display your badge and clock correctly, you can park in any shared use bay in the borough free of charge. This applies to all badge holders, not just borough residents.

There are also a number of Disabled Use bays in the borough, which any Blue Badge holder can park in. Blue Badge holders can also park on a single yellow line for up to 3 hours.

Please remember, you must display both your badge and clock to park in Disabled Use bays or on single yellow lines.

A Blue Badge does not entitle the holder to:

  • Park where there are loading restrictions. These are shown by yellow markings on the kerbstones. Signs nearby will tell you when a restriction applies.
  • Park across a dropped kerb. These are used by prams, wheelchairs and other pedestrians. Blocking them can cause serious difficulties to these people when they try to cross the road.
  • Park in front of a crossover. This is an access crossing for vehicles to drive off the road onto private land.
  • Park in a bay marked for other special users – for example Doctor’s bay, Market Traders bay, Motorcycle bay or Goods Vehicles only.
As part of Hammersmith & Fulham council’s commitment to the Blue Badge Scheme, Penalty Charge Notices may be issued to vehicles which are parked incorrectly or appear to be misusing Blue Badges. In some circumstances, vehicles may be relocated. If you receive a penalty charge notice while displaying a Blue Badge, you have the same rights to challenge the ticket as any other motorist.
