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 16 Feb 2018

Friday Rush

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

PLEASE NOTE: Friday Rush tickets are not transferable. They can only be collected from the Box Office on the day of the performance from 90 minutes before the start of the show and you will have to show the card you paid with on collection.

The timer on this page indicates when the tickets are next released, at which time a link, or links, will appear on the page to direct you to the following week's performances. At that point, an online queue will be in operation to regulate demand.

For more detailed ticket information and additional tickets available on the day, see our help centre

When the timer counts down to 1pm on Friday 23 February, two links for the Friday Rush performances from Monday 26 February to Saturday 3 May will display below for £20 tickets.
One link will be for tickets to Network and the other will be for Macbeth, Pinocchio and John at the National Theatre, and Beginning at the Ambassadors Theatre. Following either of these links will place you in the appropriate queue, ready for when tickets go on sale at 1pm.

If you are based in a different time zone to GMT/BST, please be aware that the timer may reflect your time zone and not GMT/BST.
