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


Think you know the story of Cinderella?

Well, let us introduce Cindy and Ella: the REAL ugly sisters.

Cindy wants to be rich and famous and is glued to her phone.

Ella's been practising her kickboxing and just wants to have FUN.   

When they meet a Prince who isn't so charming and a fairy godmother who's not what she seems, Ella must save her sister from a terrible fate before midnight strikes.

With help from an unusually nutty squirrel (SQUEE!), can brave Ella make it in time?   

With unforgettable original songs by award-winning composer Felix Hagan, we'll be raising our brand-new roof this winter.

Join us for a magical topsy-turvy adventure: we're going to have a ball.
