Lyttelton Lounge

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 look forward to when we can welcome you back, and for when you can explore the National Theatre again.
