The Dominion Theatre is one of the largest and most perfectly designed theatrical venues in London. It is home to a wide auditorium where every seat has a perfect view, a wealth of hospitality suites, impressive public foyers and large bar areas. Located directly above Tottenham Court Road tube station it is easy to find and easy to get to by public transport.

The Dominion is also home to Dominion Events, the Dominion Theatre's in house Events department. They hire out and organise events, meetings and corporate events and hospitality in the theatre's 9 event spaces which include the Main Auditorium, The Studio and The Boardroom.

In September 2014 the Dominion Theatre completed a 4 month long, multi million pound refurbishment project to restore the theatre to her original 1929 grandeur.

Perhaps our expectations were too high (and perhaps my willingness to pay £115 per ticket for a family of 4 might have rung some personal alarm bells!) but this really was a poor production. It wasn't funny, it wasn't touching, it wasn't technologically impressive. 3 out of 11 of us fell asleep at various points in the show. The singing... More

Went to see Michael Flatley here last night as Lord of the Dance - Dangerous Games! Fantastic show full of high energy the entire time. Been to at least 20 different Irish dance shows over the years but never in a thousand years though we would be able to see Michael Flatley dance again and in person! Story is the... More

Dominion Theatre is a very pleasant venue. Ben Forster we saw previously in Jesus Christ Superstar and didn't fail to impress on this occasion either he played Buddy really well, full of energy and exciting to watch. Gave you a feel good factor. Staging was a little simple compared with other West End shows with varying levels of technology used.... More

A birthday treat for my wife we spent a bit extra and had the Royal Box experience, we had a lovely host by the name of Sam, she couldn't do enough for us and it worth every penny!!! Elf is our all time favourite film and although there is a lot of similarities with the film it follows a slightly... More

I took my mum to this show when she came to visit me in London because I wanted to surprise her. Too bad I didn't read the bad reviews before choosing this show. The whole show was very badly staged. There was no story line in part 1 but it suddenly appeared in part 2. The dancers were technically good... More

Not 1 Christmas song! The score is totally different!! Overpriced and overrated! Fell asleep twice.. not once! But twice!! The band were very good as was Ben Forster and the Dominion is comfortable and welcoming.

Can't recommended Elf the Musical highly enough. They turned the film to a musical perfectly. It was good for all ages. The cast were brilliant and the theatre was lovely. It was feel good festive fun and a great show. Its also next to oxford street so you can make a day trip from the visit. The tickets were pricey... More

People moaning about it being busy? Cueing for toilets? Paths busy? Welcome to the capital.....what did you expect? If you want quiet go to... More

As a huge fan of the movie, i naturally had high expectations. The set was colourful and the songs were decent but it dragged and some scenes were quite boring. Most people around me were falling asleep. The Santa sleigh ride was clever and the second half was definately abit better to watch then the first half. Tickets were priced... More

We went to the dominion theatre to watch elf with our friends which one of them is visually impaired and has a guide dog. The theatre staff were so friendly and helpful to us and looked after the dog. When we arrived they showed us where the dog will be kept and who will be taking care of him and... More
