ActDrop is closing

20 September 2021

After a very difficult period over the past eighteen months, we have decided to close the ActDrop website.

Though the pandemic has been the principle factor in our decision, we've suffered from numerous other issues recently which have negatively impacted on our ability to continue with the site.

While we've been running ActDrop, we have tried to provide up-to-date (and completely free) information about London's theatre scene.

Over the past 7 years, we have listed around 11,000 shows as well as other theatrical events and festivals.

We've also undertaken hundreds of reviews at theatres right across the capital.

We'd like to extend our thanks to everyone we've worked with while we've been running ActDrop and to all our visitors - we wish you all well for the future.

The site is no longer being updated and we're not accepting any further listings - we expect to take down the site completely within the next week or so.
