Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak


London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.


Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.


Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.


We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.

Synopsis


'Some use their power for good, some for evil.


And some don't even know they possess it.'


Escaping at pace from their childhood home, the young Arthur happens upon an epic Forest.


A place filled with strange and wondrous goings on.


Encountering Merlin; a word-wielding wizard, their adventure must begin at once.


With the future of a divided nation at stake, can these two companions complete their quest and reach their goal?


Join us, this summer, in the heart of Covent Garden, as we embark on a monumental journey of mystery, danger and self-discovery.


Our destination … an unassuming churchyard … wherein lies a stone and a magical, fateful sword!


Experience the Arthurian legend like never before in this rip roaring, open-air production created and delivered by outdoor specialists, Iris Theatre.


Featuring spoken word, original songs and led by an exceptional cast of actor-musicians, this brand new re-imagining takes you on a lyrical ride of one of the greatest adventures ever told.
