Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

England is cautiously moving out of national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, but London theatres remain closed to audiences.

The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for indoor performances to restart has been given as 17 May 2021, with capacity restrictions.

Larger theatres may be back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.

London theatres are beginning to announce new show dates and we are updating our listings.

However, we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.


18 to 29 May 2021

Show details







Proforca Theatre Company reopen the Lion & Unicorn Theatre with a brand new show after Lockdown.

"AAAAA" [FiveA] continues Proforca's tradition of emotional storytelling, presenting great characters for audiences to fall in love with, championing new fringe theatre talent and a great new concept developed by a partnership of creatives drawn from the Associate Artists programme at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre in Kentish Town.

In order to re-capture the mystery, tension and anticipation of the return of live fringe theatre, no further details about the production will be released before performances commence.

We invite you to join us for a brand-new brave piece of fringe theatre storytelling from a critically acclaimed, award nominated production team as we embark on a new adventure where no two shows will be the same.
