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


Expect acrobats, contortionists, trapeze artists, a death-defying high-wire act and sensational life-sized elephants, created by the puppeteers behind War Horse.

All this entertainment is packaged into a show with a gorgeous vintage feel, inspired by the classic circuses of the turn-of-the-century era.

And there's great news if you're lucky enough to have experienced the thrill of Circus 1903 before: there are new acts included for this season.

Circus 1903 is suitable for families, however we do ask you to promise us that you won't try to recreate any of the more dangerous stunts at home - no matter how tempted you are.
