Streatham Hill Theatre added to the national Heritage At Risk Register

On 4th November, Historic England published its Heritage At Risk Register 2021, with the Streatham Hill Theatre being added to it. The Heritage At Risk Register sets out the historic sites in England most at risk of being lost forever as a result of neglect, decay or inappropriate development.

The 2021 Register describes the Grade II listed Streatham Hill Theatre as “an unusually lavish example of a theatre built outside of the West End and was designed by William George Robert Sprague, one of the leading theatre architects of his generation. It is a rare survival as only a few of his buildings still exist today”.

Happy 92nd Birthday!

20th November 2021 was the 92nd birthday of Streatham Hill Theatre. The theatre opened in 1929, a few days late due to unfinished work – it had been due to open on the 18th – with the Cochrane Review “Wake up and Dream!

In recognition of its over 90 years at the heart of Streatham Hill, we are collecting memories from those who worked or visited the theatre over that period.

And, to commemorate this birthday we are releasing brand new video interviews with:

We are pleased to have had a few offers of help from local volunteers and we will be introducing new active members of the campaign steering group, memories project, and comms team - thank you!
But there's always more to do!

If you are able to help, we need volunteers to help look after our social media, co-ordinate and run our events, engage with stakeholders, and generally run the campaign.
Please take a look at our volunteer page for more info.

Please come along to a campaign meeting or drop us an email! THANKS.


We continue to raise awareness about this beautiful Grade II listed building, seeking support and potential users/operators.
Please keep spreading the word to your friends, family, colleagues.
It would soon be pantomime time at the Streatham Hill Theatre - let's hope one day it will be again. Have a good break and see you in the new year!

Thank You
