The Alexandra was built in 1901 by William Coutts and was originally called the Lyceum. The theatre is home to first class entertainment and has welcomed productions such as Doctor Dolittle, starring Phillip Schofield and the sell-out version of Peter Pan with Joe Pasquale. This stunning theatre was recently relaunched as The Alexandra following a £650,000 refurbishment.
