Alexandra Palace is a venue like no other and has been innovating and entertaining visitors since 1875. Built as the 'People's Palace', this remarkable seven-acre Grade II listed building and park remains one of London most iconic destinations. From the advent of Victorian leisure time through to the development of theatre, cinema, television and live events - Alexandra Palace continues to be central to the story of entertainment in Britain.
Over its 150 year history Alexandra Palace has been the home of extraordinary events - the first high definition television broadcast in 1936, The Rolling Stones in 1964, the ground breaking 14 Hour Technicolor Dream in 1967, The Brit Awards in 1993 and in 2017 Spotify's already legendary Who We Be Live showcase.
Our capacity is over 10,000sqm with nine spaces and 196 acres of parkland offering unprecedented panoramic views of London and our event spaces can host anywhere from 10 to 10,000 people.
Today it continues to host an eclectic range of concerts, exhibitions and trade shows as well as being a hugely in demand filming location. Alexandra Palace also produces a number of its own "home-grown" events throughout the year which includes StrEATlife, Springfest and the internationally renowned Fireworks Festival. In 2017/18 the venue entertained just under 1 million people with a further 3.5 million visitors to its award-winning Park.
