Refurbishment of the Eventim Apollo
After a £5 million major refurbishment project the Hammersmith Odeon, officially renamed the Eventim Apollo, reopened its doors in 2013. The original art deco designs and beautiful historical fixtures and fittings remain however it is now combined with a touch of contemporary design.
