The Cambridge Theatre was built between 1929 and 1930, and designed by architects Wimperis, Simpson and Guthrie. Constructed from concrete and steel, the theatre is noteworthy for its clean and elegant design lines. In 1950 it was refurbished and its silver and gold décor was covered with red paint, plus chandeliers and candelabras were added. The original décor was restored in 1987, when it was renovated again.

The Cambridge Theatre’s circular entry foyer boasts a bronze frieze by Grinling, with naked figures in athletic poses, and this theme is continued inside the central foyer, which has recessed lighting and nudes in dance poses. Notable productions that have been presented at the Cambridge Theatre include Grease, Great Balls of Fire, The Beautiful Game, Fame, Our House, Jerry Springer - The Opera, Something Wicked this Way Comes, Dancing in the Streets and Chicago.

It seats 1,231 people on 3 tiers, and the closest public transport is the tube at Covent Garden and British Rail at Charing Cross.
