Friday Rush

Friday Rush offers a great way to get hold of National Theatre tickets at late notice – even for sold out shows*.

Friday Rush Shows include Twelfth Night, Ugly Lies the Bone and Consent

Friday Rush

Every Friday at 1pm an allocation of £20 tickets for shows in all three theatres at the National will be released to buy online, for the following week’s performances. Only available to book online and limited to 2 per customer for each show.

The timer indicates when the tickets are released, however from 12.50pm a waiting room will be in operation to moderate demand. If you arrive on this page before 12.50pm, you need to refresh the page to ensure you are placed in the waiting room. At 1pm, everyone in the waiting room will then be allocated a random position in the queue to book Friday Rush tickets.

*PLEASE NOTE Friday Rush tickets will not be available for Angels in America. Hundreds of £20 tickets will be regularly released in the Angels Ballot presented by Delta. Sign up for news on Angels in America and be amongst the first to hear more about the Angels Ballot.
