As HornchurchLife grows we wanted to start a near feature called “5 things”. Simply put you list 5 things about something in or around Hornchurch

This one is “5 things you may not know about The Queens Theatre”

The Queens Theatre is a popular topic for HornchurchLife as we are big fans

In no particular order…

1: The Bar

Most people will know that The Queen’s Theatre has a bar but did you know that it remained open when the theatre doors shut?


It’s a very nice place to have a drink as it’s quite, although it gets busier during act breaks, and there are no age restrictions so you can take the family along as well, there are obviously age restrictions regarding the serving of alcohol

2: Comedy Club in the foyer

About once a month the Queens hosts a comedy club in there main foyer and with 3 acts to pick from it’s likely at least 1 if not all of them are funny


3: Food including pre-ordered meals

The Queens Theatre can provide a few meals in there foyer including baked potatoes and baguettes. You can even pre-order the meal if your in a hurry, see the website:


4: Queens Theatre open Days

Want to see behind the scenes of the Queens including meeting members of the cast? These days are free and gives you an peek into the life of the Queens Theatre


5: Free Wifi in the Foyer

Need to complete that important piece of work but your home broadband is down? No worries just pop along to the Queens with your laptop or ipad and complete the work there and with the aforementioned bar it makes doing even the worse piece of work fun

  1. It's such a great place. Did you know that Hornchurch District Council was the first council in the country to fund a local theatre? I was in a musical play at the theatre called 'Lighting Up The Lane' a couple of months ago which retold the history of the old theatre in Station Lane.The creation of the old theatre was a huge economic and social boost for Hornchurch. One of the lines in the play was "Romford may have its market, but Hornchurch has its very own theatre!"
