Following the latest government advice about Coronavirus (Covid-19), the National Theatre building is currently closed to the public.

It’s with enormous sadness that we temporarily close our doors, but the safety of our audiences, company and staff is of utmost importance. We apologise for the disruption and thank you for your support during this period of great uncertainty. 

We have made contact with ticket holders for performances at the National Theatre, alll of which have been cancelled. Visit our website and follow our social media channels for up-to-date information about our activities during our closure period. Visit our FAQs for more information.

We hope to welcome you back soon.
