An illustrated poster of the Lyceum Theatre, central London, currently home of musical The Lion King.
The Lyceum Theatre is one of London’s oldest – with parts of the building, including the magnificent portico, dating back to 1834. The architect was Samuel Beazley. He designed many notable London buildings and unusually combined this with an additional career as a playwright.
In 1939 this lovely theatre was closed in order to be demolished and turned into a road roundabout! However, the Second World War delayed these plans and the theatre survived. Post-war, it was a ballroom for a time, but was eventually left derelict until rescued by the Theatres Trust and restored with Lottery funding in 1996 to its present resplendent glory.
With the arrival of huge hit musical The Lion King in 1999, the Lyceum’s future seems assured for some time to come.
This is a digital copy of my original illustration and is printed on quality paper in A4 or A3 sizes. These are standard sizes and easy to mount and frame. There is a white border around the image to allow for the signature. Some photos show how lovely the print will look framed, but please note that the print is sold unframed and without a mount.
I sign all the prints in pencil in the bottom right and include the title of the print.
I will send A4 and A3 prints by Royal Mail, presented in a cello bag with a cardboard back for protection or onward delivery. International deliveries may be sent rolled in a tube.
Paper size: A4 (210 x 297mm or 8.3 x 11.7 inches).
Paper size: A3 (297 x 420mm or 11.7 x 16.5 inches) .
