The Ambassadors Theatre was designed by W G R Sprague who designed many West End Theatres including the St Martin's Theatre situated next door and the Aldwych Theatre in Covent Garden. It was built by Kingerlee and Sons of Oxford. The theatre opened on 5th June 1913 with a production of Panthea, a play by Monckton Hoffe which ran for only 15 nights. Britain's longest running production The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie opened at The Ambassadors on 25th November 1952 and played here until its 21st Birthday in 1973 when it transferred next door to the larger St Martin's Theatre. The stalls bar of the Ambassadors currently displays a commemorative statuette, which was presented to the theatre by Agatha Christie to celebrate the play's record breaking run.

Shows



Everyone must have a valid ticket and occupy a seat. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult 16+. No babes in arms. Young children are admitted but not encouraged unless the parent is confident that the child is old enough to be attentive to the performance and not a distraction for other members of the audience. Accompanying adults will be asked to remove any noisy children.
