Friday Rush

Please note: For both The Lehman Trilogy and Home, I'm Darling tickets are now limited to two per customer. If you've already bought two or more tickets, you will not be able to purchase Friday Rush tickets.

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.
