The Western elevation of Alexandra Palace
The Western elevation of Alexandra Palace

The Great Hall and West Hall are used as an exhibition centre and conference centre operated by the trading arm of the charitable trust which owns the building and Park on behalf of the public. There is also an ice skating rink. Since 1995 the Palace has been a Grade II listed building. It was designed to be ‘The People’s Palace’ and later nicknamed (allegedly by Gracie Fields)[1]Ally Pally”, and in 1936 became the headquarters of the world's first regular public ‘high definition’ television service, operated by the BBC. The Alexandra Palace television station was located on the site and its iconic radio tower is still in use. The original Studios A and B still survive in the south-east wing. The original Victorian Theatre with its stage machinery also survives. The structure is currently on English Heritage's Buildings at Risk register. There is currently an application to upgrade the listing by [2], which originally got the Palace Grade II listed (against the opposition of trustee Haringey council), and the BBC. Also, a planned disposal of the whole building for commercial, non-charitable purposes has encountered much public opposition and was blocked in the High Court in October 2007.

History

Alexandra Palace on fire in 1873.
Alexandra Palace on fire in 1873.

In December 1858 the architect Owen Jones, who had been involved with the Crystal Palace, exhibited drawings for a proposed 'Palace of the People' to be constructed on the hilltop between Muswell Hill and Wood Green. The Great Northern Palace company was established, but was unable to raise the finance for the project. However, the idea lived on and on 23 July 1863 Alexandra Park was opened to the public. It was named after Alexandra of Denmark who had married Prince Edward, the Prince of Wales, four months earlier. In September 1865 construction of the palace commenced, but to a design different from Jones'. ImageMetadata File history File links Ally_Pally_on_Fire_ILN_1873. ...

The rebuilt Palace in 1875.

The palace covers some seven and a half acres. In 1871 work started on a railway line to connect the site to Highgate Station. Work on both the railway and the palace was completed in 1873 and, on 24 May, Alexandra Palace and Park was opened. Only sixteen days later the palace was destroyed by fire, killing three members of staff. Only the outer walls survived. ImageMetadata File history File links Ally_Pally_ILN_1875. ...

With typical Victorian vigour,the palace was quickly rebuilt and reopened in May 1875. It contained a concert hall, art galleries, a museum, a lecture hall, a library, a banqueting room and a theatre. An open-air swimming pool was constructed at the base of the hill in the surrounding park; the pool is now long closed and little trace remains except some reeds. The Grounds included a racecourse with grandstand (Alexandra Park, which closed in 1970), Japanese village, switchback ride, boating lake and a par 9 golf course. The Willis organ installed in 1875 (vandalized in 1918, restored and re-opened in 1929) is still working, but its restoration is continuing.

In 1900 the Palace and Park’s owners were threatening to sell it for development, but a consortium of local authorities led by Hornsey Urban District managed to raise enough money to purchase them in the nick of time. By the Alexandra Park and Palace (Public Purposes) Act, 1900, a charitable trust was set up; representatives of the purchasing local authorities became the trustees with the duty to keep both Palace and Park “available for the free use and recreation of the public for ever". Ironically, it is this very duty that the present trustee, Haringey council, is currently trying to overturn, protesters fear,[4] by selling the whole Palace to a commercial developer. [5] The Palace passed into the hands of the GLC and in 1979 to Haringey council.

In 1935 the trustees leased part of the palace to the BBC, which used it as the production and transmission centre for their new BBC Television Service. The antenna was designed by Charles Samuel Franklin of the Marconi company. The world's first public broadcasts of high-definition television were made from this site in 1936. Two competing systems, Marconi-EMI's 405-line system and Baird's 240-line system, were installed, each with its own broadcast studio, and were transmitted on alternate weeks until the 405-line system was chosen in 1937. The palace continued as the BBC's main TV transmitting centre for London until 1956, interrupted only by World War II when the transmitter found an alternative use jamming German bombers' navigation systems (it is said that only 25% of London raids were effective because of these transmissions).[citation needed] In 1944 a German doodlebug exploded just outside the organ end of the Great Hall and blew in the rose window, leaving the organ exposed to the weather.[6] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 457 × 599 pixelsFull resolution‎ (1,373 × 1,800 pixels, file size: 520 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File historyClick on a date/time to view the file as it appeared at that time. ...

During the early 1960s, an outside broadcast was given from the very top of the tower, in which the first passage of a satellite across the London sky was watched and described. After that it continued to be used for news broadcasts until 1969, and for the Open University until the early 1980s.

In 1980 the trustee ( Haringey) decided to refurbish the building but a couple of days after the Great British Beer Festival and during Capital Radio's Jazz Festival a second disastrous fire started under the organ and quickly spread, it destroyed half the building. Again, the outer walls survived and the eastern parts, including the Theatre and the BBC TV studios and aerial mast, were saved. In this fire parts of the famous Organ were destroyed, though it had been dismantled for repairs and some parts (including nearly all the pipework) were away from the building in store. Some of the damage to the palace was repaired immediately but Haringey Council overspent on the restoration. Later the Council was severely criticized for this in a report by Project Management International.

The Theatre was greatly altered in the early 1920s with the General Manager McQueen-Pope spending the war reparation money on refurbishing the auditorium. He abandoned the understage machinery which produced the effects necessary in Victorian melodrama: some of the machinery is preserved and a current project is for restoring some of it to working order. After these changes the theatre was leased by Archie Pitt, then husband of Gracie Fields, who appeared in the theatre.

In June 2004 the first performances for about seventy years took place in the theatre, first in its foyer then on 2 July in the theatre itself. Although conditions are far from ideal the audience was able to see the potential of this very large space — originally seating 3000, it cannot currently be licensed for more than a couple of hundred. It is intended that the theatre will one day reopen but much costly restoration will be required first. It will never again reach a seating capacity of 3000 (not least because one balcony was removed in the early part of the twentieth century as a fire precaution, when films started to be shown there) but it does seem likely that a capacity of more than 1000 may one day be achieved.
