Millfield Theatre opened on 15 December 1988 in the grounds of Millfield House on Silver Street in Edmonton, North London. It was the first new theatre built in London after the National Theatre in 1963 and seats up to 362 in a variety of stage layouts.

The first production was the pantomime Humpty Dumpty starring Bobby Crush and set the trend of producing an annual Christmas pantomime that continues today.

The Millfield Theatre was built largely thanks to the determination and hard work of Councillor Lionel Genn who was the Mayor of the London Borough of Enfield from 1972-1973.[1] In recognition of this the theatre auditorium was named the Lionel Genn auditorium in 1989.[2] However shortly after this, an Investigative News Television Programme implicated Mr Genn in a financial scandal and his name was removed from the theatre.

The theatre was re-opened on 6 October 2009 by the performer Bruce Forsyth following significant refurbishment,[3] gaining a new cafe bar, performance space, toilet block and box office. The main auditorium was renamed the Sir Bruce Forsyth Auditorium. Forsyth had been born in Edmonton.
