To Book Tickets

There's an allocation of Entry Pass tickets at every performance at the National Theatre. Entry Pass tickets are popular so book early!

Login and you'll be able to see tickets available and buy tickets. Tickets are £5 for members and you can bring a mate aged 16-25 years old for just £7.50. One Entry Pass ticket and one Mates Rates ticket can be purchased per member. 

Alternatively call the Box Office on 020 7452 3000 to buy over the phone.

Once you've booked , you then collect your tickets from the Box Office on the day of the performance. You'll need to collect 30 minutes before the show starts and you have to present photo ID showing your age when you collect (the same applies for anyone using tickets booked at the Mates Rate).
