Access to the Dorfman Theatre

The Dorfman Theatre is our smaller, flexible space that can have a different seating configuration for each production. 

The Dorfman Theatre is on the east side of the National Theatre, on Stage Door Avenue, opposite the IBM building.

Entrance is via a ramp access, off Stage Door Avenue, and has button-operated swing glass doors.

There are large foyer spaces and a lift to make the Dorfman accessible from all levels. 
Please note: The lift in the Dorfman Theatre is currently unavailable due to essential maintenance - it will re-open on Monday 25 November. Should you, or someone in your group, have access needs that you have not previously discussed with us and you feel you may benefit from additional support to access the auditorium, please contact boxoffice@nationaltheatre.org.uk so we may accommodate your requirements. We thank you for your patience and look forward to welcoming you very soon. 

The foyer, which is open daily, also gives public access to the Backstage High Level Walkway, overlooking the theatre’s backstage workshops, and the Clore Learning Centre.

There is a cafe/bar in the Dorfman foyer, and a cloakroom and accessible toilets are also available.
