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.

We advise checking theatre websites for the latest information and what you can expect when visiting.

Show details


Take yourself back to 2011.

'Party Rock' was dominating the airwaves, 'Angry Birds' had just taken the nation by storm, and the iPad was everyone's new favourite toy.

Flash forward to 2021.

Division is the status quo, the future is uncertain, and Woolworths is gone.

The world has changed.

For Ben and Oscar, this time has been no different.

Best friends since forever, they grow up by each other's sides, and experience all the trials and tribulations of puberty and early manhood together.

From Runescape to WKDs to university applications, they tackle the world as it comes at them, but as the years unravel, they too may find themselves transformed.
