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.

Carmela and Paulino, a couple of travelling entertainers, mistakenly cross the border that separates the two opposing sides of the Spanish Civil War.
Unexpectedly, they end up in "Belchite" - a village that the National Army has recently liberated.
Both actors will be forced to improvise a theatrical evening to celebrate the defeat of the enemy.
What begins as an entertaining tribute to the victors ends as a tragic comedy.
Note: this show is performaed in Spanish.
