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.
26 Jul to 16 Sep 2021
Run away with Rosalind and Celia as the Forest of Arden quite literally lands in your local pub garden this summer.
It may look fresh out of Shakespeare's day, but Open Bar makes sure it's as relevant as ever, with original songs to help you follow the plot and six actors leaping around our two-storey set, what more could you ask for this summer?!
Oh yes, a pint in your hand and a friend by your side!
You will gasp at the spectacle, laugh til your sides hurt and be humming the tunes for weeks afterwards.
