Criterion Theatre

Restore London were appointed to carry out remedial works to the Grade II* Criterion Theatre canopy in the heart of Piccadilly Circus. Located in a busy pedestrian area, access scaffolding around the canopy was constructed out of hours to minimise risk & inconvenience to the public. Existing lead to the canopy was stripped and renewed in Code 6 leadwork,  including new flashings. Our team decorated all areas, including the surrounding façade, as well as restoration and decoration works to the ornate gold crest at the centre of the canopy structure. The team also restored the metal work, installing metal roses which were cast and fixed (which had been missing prior to the works).

Our works were completed to the highest quality, safely and on time ready for the reopening of the theatre, much to the delight of the Theatre Board of Directors.

Restore London



“Restore London brought a level of quality craftsmanship and skill that is rare in today’s construction market. They worked collaboratively, bringing their wealth of knowledge to every detail. Their contribution to the National Portrait Gallery can be seen wherever you look in the project. ”

Jamie Fobert CBE

Architect, Jamie Fobert Architects

“It was a pleasure working with the Restore London team. They showed good team spirit coupled by a highly pro-active approach to problem solving & were able to resource the project during unforeseen circumstances, such as the funeral of the late Queen Elizabeth II. The quality of their workmanship was excellent. ”

Steve Baldock

Divisional Director, Curo Construction

“I have used Restore London for a number of projects & find them very reliable & cost effective, with excellent workmanship – which is particularly important when working on a number of the Listed buildings we have here at RHC.”

Stephen Crampton

Project Manager, CBRE

““Restore London made our specified repairs so that they are almost invisible when viewing the room as a whole but are sufficiently different that an educated viewer could see where the mosaic had experienced areas of change when looking in detail. Perfect!” ”

Liz Smith

Chairperson & Regional Partner, Purcell

“Restore London’s works were undertaken to the highest standards. The team’s attention to detail has been second to none & we would recommend Restore London to anyone seeking a strong team who can deliver.”

Louise Priestman BA(Hons)

“Restore London cleaned and restored the facades of the building including the courtyard all to the complete satisfaction of our Client’s team. The quality of work was matched by the professional and pro-active approach of the entire Restore team, we would certainly recommend them.”
