The recent restoration has brought this Frank Matcham designed theatre into the 21st Century with state of the art facilities. Built in 1901, it is an extraordinarily atmospheric theatre. A Grade II listed building, the Hackney Empire has spent the last 115 years presenting the arts in all incarnations from Charlie Chaplin, the BB, and Gilbert & Sullivan to Arcade Fire, Russell Brand and Hercule Poirot not to mention London’s No.1 pantomime.
