Theatres and coronavirus

From Monday 19 July, theatres in London are allowed to operate without capacity limits.

And all legal restrictions imposed by the government will be removed.

However, most theatres will still be following procedures such as electronic ticketing etc and may require masks to be worn.

Note that some performances have been cancelled where cast or staff have tested positive and need to isolate.

We advise checking theatre websites for the latest information and what you can expect when visiting.

Show details



A poor excuse for picking a man's pocket every twenty-fifth of December!" exclaims Ebenezer Scrooge in the opening stave of A Christmas Carol.

It's also an excuse for the DICKENS THEATRE COMPANY to bring you their joyously authentic staging of this Victorian classic to The Old Rep.

Two of Dickens' closest theatrical companions find themselves trapped in the footlights' glare.

With the rest of the cast stuck on a train, actress Frances Ternan and Dickens' faithful tour manager George Dolby take on the daunting challenge of portraying over 30 characters.

But, who will play Scrooge?
