The London Palladium is a 2,286-seat West End theatre located off Oxford Street in the City of Westminster. From the roster of stars who have played there and many televised performances, it is arguably the most famous theatre in London and the United Kingdom, especially for musical variety shows. The theatre has also hosted the Royal Variety Performance more than any other theatre, most recently in 2013.
The building now carries Heritage Foundation commemorative plaques honouring Lew Grade and Frankie Vaughan. The theatre retains many of its original features and was Grade II* listed in September 1960. The Palladium had its own telephone system so the occupants of boxes could call one another. It also had a revolving stage.
