Face coverings currently required

In line with the latest Government guidance, face coverings are currently mandatory at the National Theatre building on the South Bank. It helps to keep everyone safe at this time – audiences, artists and staff. 

Face coverings must be worn throughout your visit to the building, including during performances, apart from when eating and drinking. The only exceptions are for people who are exempt from wearing face coverings and visitors aged under 12. That means if you’re not exempt, we can’t admit you to the building unless you wear a face covering.

If you’re exempt from wearing a face covering please advise a member of staff upon arrival.

All areas, including our theatres, are well-ventilated and undergo enhanced cleaning between every show.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you on your next visit.
