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.

A new play by Mojisola Adebayo, inspired by the life of Henrietta Lacks, an African American woman, whose cells were harvested and cultivated without her consent after her death from cervical cancer in 1951.
The so-called HeLa cells have been vital to studying disease, decoding the human genome, and have even contributed to the development of the COVID-19 vaccines.
Exploring timely themes around exploitation and ethics in healthcare, this powerful, site-responsive promenade piece comes to GDIF, prior to a full production at the Young Vic.
