Ambassadors Theatre

Ambassadors Theatre

London West End

The Ambassadors Theatre is relatively young in comparison with other West End theatres, built as part of a pair with the adjacent St Martin’s Theatre in 1913. Revue shows defined the early to mid-20th century, until Agatha Christie’s thriller The Mousetrap famously made its world premiere in 1952. The whodunnit ran at the Ambassadors Theatre until its 21st birthday in 1973 when it transferred next door to the larger St Martin’s Theatre. The Mousetrap continues to this day and is the West End’s and Britain’s longest-running show.

More recently, The Ambassadors was the creative home of acclaimed producers Sonia Friedman and the Royal Court and it is also the resident venue for the National Youth Theatre.

Following ATGs purchase of the venue in 2018 extensive capital works have taken place and reinvigorated the venue.

Seating capacity: 406
