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

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.

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.
