Hackney Empire is a special building in a special place - a unique variety theatre for the 21st century. Embracing both local and global communities of artists and audiences, it is determined to nurture and present work that is at once...more
I look forward to seeing this show every year and it never disappoints! This is panto at its best: glitzy, loud, camp and rowdy. The audience is as much part of the show as what happens on stage. It works for all ages: three year...More
We saw this yesterday and were not disappointed. A fun show with all the things you would expect from a traditional panto but with a twist, which will appeal to everyone young and old. Loads of laughs and plenty of audience interaction,a real treat from...More
Was a great panto. Super audience interaction and really good fun. Who cant love a cute smiling panda! Not sure how any one wouldn't see this as a family show!!! Clive Rowe is excellent as ever. Some fun contemporary references.
Had a box and it...More
I was looking forward to taking my 2 kids to watch Aladdin but much to my dismay we did not enjoy the experience at all, the whole show did not flow or make any sense, it was particulary difficult for my boys to understand. If...More
The Aladin shown was more like a lesbian shown inappropriate for small children. It did not make sense. I would never visit Hackney empire again. Disgusting disrectful. Also it was more like going to a school play.
A really great time had by all at this excellent Pantomime. Clive Rowe was excellent at always as the dame. This show also featured the actress who plays Kim( the funny one ) from Eastenders ... she was really good . The lead actress who...More
This place really seems to have kept its original features - and it's easily to imagine how things were in years gone by when it was an old music hall
We had a side view, but also a perfect view of the stage - so...More
We went to the recording of a radio programme and were rewarded with a great show and a fantastic building to spend a few hours in. The building is beautiful and the decor was just amazing.
The theatre is a short walk form the overland...More
Had no idea how beautiful this building is inside. The auditorium is on a par with the best West End theatres. Not being huge - I believe capacity is around 1300 - the view of the stage is great. Facilities are adequate and the bar...More

The tesco car park is very small and you can only park there for 2 or 3 hours . It's is unlikely that it will be enough time for you as the show is around 3 hours long and you will need time to queue and find your seats etc... More
The tesco car park is very small and you can only park there for 2 or 3 hours . It's is unlikely that it will be enough time for you as the show is around 3 hours long and you will need time to queue and find your seats etc your best option is to use the overground hackney central station as it is just 2 or 3 mins walk from the theatre . If you are local there are buses that you can use to , but we decided that parking was not an option unless uou want to run the risk of clamping or a ticket at tesco
