Wimbledon New Theatre is situated on Wimbledon Broadway. It is a Grade 2 listed Edwardian building, which was built by theatre lover and entrepreneur J B Mulholland. It seems to have been the only British theatre to have included a Victorian-style Turkish bath in the basement. The theatre was first opened back in 1910 and has approximately 1650 seats. Some of the famous TV shows and events hired the venue to record their performances, such as The Bill, The IT Crowd, De-Lovely, Little Britain, Extras (the Aladdin pantomime episode with Les Dennis) and We Are Most Amused, a comedy gala performance to celebrate the 60th birthday of HRH The Prince of Wales, in aid of The Prince’s Trust.
