Our National Work

Our National Work

We believe that to truly be a theatre for everyone, our work has to be accessible to as many people in the UK as possible.

Below you can find out more about the major national programmes that help us reach audiences and artists right across the country.


In 2017-18, we toured more work to more theatres around the country than at any other time in our history.

On top of our record-breaking touring programme, NT Live broadcasted 13 productions into local cinemas, from Penzance to the Shetland Islands, and we created Theatre Nation Partnerships, a strategic touring project to develop new audiences for drama in target areas across England. As a result, 65% of our UK audiences for ticketed theatre lived outside London - a new record


Our productions, on the road across the UK – including War Horse and Macbeth.
