Bill Kenwright Theatres

We are proud to own and operate Theatre Royal Windsor and The Other Palace in London.


Nestled in the shadows of Windsor Castle, Theatre Royal Windsor has a history stretching back over 245 years. The current Grade II listed 633 seat theatre opened in 1910.

One of the only completed unsubsidised regional producing theatres in the UK that operates all year round, Bill Kenwright Ltd took over the operation of the Theatre in 1997 following its closure. Bill Kenwright himself starred in many productions here as a young actor under John Counsell’s management in the 1960’s and 70’s.

The theatre produces a range of plays and musicals which subsequently tour the UK or transfer into the West End, as well as its annual pantomime which has now been running for over 85 consecutive years.

The Other Palace (formerly known as the St James Theatre) is built on the site of the Westminster Theatre, with a 312 seat main house and a studio seating 120, The Other Palace focuses on being a creative hub for new theatre, where theatre is developed, discovered, explored and celebrated.

Bill Kenwright Ltd purchased the theatre in 2021 from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s LW Theatres, reopening the venue from the pandemic with a record-breaking season of Heathers the Musical, followed by a sell-out premiere of Frank & Percy starring Ian McKellen & Roger Allam.

The Other Palace champions and promotes new writing and new musicals with regular workshops, readings, opportunities to get involved and performances of emerging work.
