The Red Lion Ballroom is a fantastic live entertainment space in the heart of Leytonstone, Waltham Forest – London’s first Borough of Culture.
A cultural hub, The Ballroom plays hosts to an array of theatre, music and comedy events through the year: from curious cabaret shows to funky soul nights and world-class gigs, the former dancehall continues to be a thriving social and nightlife hub for locals and those from further afield. It was the first London venue that Led Zeppelin played and
recently it has hosted modern legends such as Craig Charles, Bad
Manners and Norman Jay amongst many others.
