Kings Theatre in Southsea

Kings Theatre, Southsea

The dignified and beautiful Kings Theatre - with its Italian Renaissance style of decor - is one of the best examples of the elegant Edwardian playhouses to be found in the British Isles and it has most original features intact. It is the result of the vision and business acumen of John Waters Boughton and the architectural prowess of Frank Matcham, one of the greatest of theatre architects. Although Frank Matcham is very respected and his work is becoming well documented, J W Boughton remains largely unknown outside Portsmouth.
