The Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch is a modern 500-seat theatre located in
Hornchurchin the London Borough of Havering, East London.
The theatre opened in its current purpose-built site on Billet Lane, Hornchurch in 1975.
From 1953 to 1975 the theatre had occupied a converted, and for some time derelict, cinema on Station Lane. The theatre originally opened in the coronation year of Queen Elizabeth II and its name reflects this.

pantomimeas well as appearing in Theatre in Education tours.
