In 1929, the auditorium was destroyed by a fire, but thanks to automated sprinkler systems and a fire curtain, the fire was contained to the auditorium, and the theatre shell was solid enough to be retained.

Her Majesty's has had many famous performances in her auditorium including dame Nellie Melba's farewell performance in 1927 and Dame Margot Fonteyn's Melbourne debut in 1957.
