Everyone is welcome
We are all part of making the National Theatre a welcoming, inspiring place where everyone can feel they belong, whatever the purpose of their visit.
Discriminatory and intimidating behaviour have no place here. If you experience any, we’ll take action. Speak to any member of staff who can refer you to a manager. We’re here to be proactive and to help.
We take pride in acting with care and compassion, and everyone who visits or works here is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect. This place exists to spark creativity and thought, but please don’t assume that other visitors and staff will necessarily agree with your point of view.
Please be open, patient, and kind.
We believe in making theatre that’s accessible to everyone. Learn more about how we can support your visit, with our range of assisted performances and accessibility services.
