Haymarket Theatre Royal

The Haymarket Theatre was built by John Potter on the site of the King's Head Inn and the Gun Smith shop in 1702. It has had a colourful history, complete with riots, death by stampedes, falling chandeliers and censorship - as well as plenty of smash hits. It was also one of the most forward thinking theatres and in 1873 became the first venue to introduce a matinee performance. Oscar Wilde premiered both A Woman of No Importance and An Ideal Husband here in the 1890s and it still plays host to major stars in important productions, including, in recent years, The Royal Family starring Judi Dench, and Ibsen's Brand featuring Ralph Fiennes.
