We hope you are visiting our website because you care as much about the National Theatre as we do. It is a hub of creativity where ideas are born, nurtured and shared.


Right now the National Theatre is closed and facing a devastating impact from Coronavirus. Our doors may be closed, but our NT Live catalogue is now open and streaming world-class theatre to you and families around the world, every week, for free.
We know that this is a difficult time for many of us, but if you are able to make a donation to help keep entertaining, challenging and inspiring stories in all our lives, it would be hugely appreciated.
