A brilliant NT Future is on the way

Our major redevelopment project, NT Future, is underway. Due to the building works, some services in our foyers have temporarily changed location:

  • The main entrance has moved a few metres to the right, and leads directly into the Lyttelton foyer.
  • A temporary Box Office is located on the ground floor, opposite the main Long Bar. (The Olivier Theatre Box Office remains on Level 2).
  • The Bookshop is currently closed. Our brand new bookshop with be opening in autumn 2014. Please visit our online shop whilst closed.
  • All lifts are still in operation.
