About Hackney Empire
Originally opened in 1901 and intended for use as a music hall, the Hackney Empire has seen some of the most famous entertainers of the modern era perform on its stage. Whether it was Charlie Chaplin, WC Fields, Eddie Izzard, Dawn French or Ralph Feinnes, the theatre has been a constant source of phenomenal entertainment and a showcase for exciting new talent.
Though it may no longer sit at the cutting edge of theatre and comedy, it continues to excite audiences with a programme that combines film, comedy, pantomime and music.
