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.

'Stories are wild creatures, the monster said.
When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?'
Patrick Ness' piercing novel is brought vividly to life in this Olivier award-winning production by visionary director Sally Cookson.
Thirteen-year-old Conor and his mum have managed just fine since his dad moved.
But now his mum is sick and not getting any better.
His grandmother won't stop interfering and the kids at school won't look him in the eye.
Then, one night, Conor is woken by something at his window.
A monster has come walking.
It's come to tell Conor tales from when it walked before.
And when it's finished, Conor must tell his own story and face his deepest fears.
From the critically acclaimed bestseller, A Monster Calls offers a dazzling insight into love, life and healing.
