Art at The Lane

King's Gallery 

Kings Gallery

Theatre Royal Drury Lane houses not only a world-class auditorium, currently home to Disney's Frozen, but it also hosts a large collection of artwork.

Adorning the walls of the theatre is a mix of reproductions and original pieces that have either been donated, loaned, or owned by private collectors. The King's Gallery is no different, read below for a numerated list of the artwork, starting from the left of the door as you enter.
