St James's Theatre - Olivier relief St James's Theatre

Relief: St James's Theatre - Olivier relief

Inscription

{none}

We choose this as our featured memorial in March 2007 since this year sees the centenary of Olivier's birth. Click here to see the other relief panels rescued from the theatre and also the text on the S.W.E.T. plaque. These memorials are hidden away down the passage between the pub and the modern building now occupying the site of St James's Theatre, which Olivier and Vivien Leigh tried so hard to save.

Site: St James's Theatre (3 memorials)

SW1, King Street, 23-24

The passageway between the pub and the modern building houses the SWET plaque and the Olivier relief. The other 3 reliefs are at the far end of the passageway.

We believe the reliefs used to adorn the balconies of the first building to replace the theatre, now demolished.
