We're piloting early-evening performances starting at 6.30pm

From February 2024 we’re piloting a selected number of early-evening performances, starting at 6.30pm.

This trial follows a major piece of research we’ve undertaken in recent months to understand more from our audiences about their post-Covid lifestyles and habits, including varying working patterns and journey times, particularly for those living outside of London.

The early evening performances will offer more flexibility for audiences to make the most of their evening, whether that’s more time to grab a bite to eat, to discuss the show over a glass or two, or simply not having to rush off to catch the last train.

The 6.30pm performances will fall on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with a limited number available for every new production playing on the South Bank in the first half of the year.
