Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

England is currently in a third national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, so all London theatres are closed to audiences.

The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for partial reopening has been given as 17 May 2021, with larger theatres possibly back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.

We update our listings to reflect cancellations and postponements of shows, but we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Show details


Grimm Tales for Fragile Times and Broken People brings a feast of storytelling inspired by the fairy tales from Brothers Grimm.

Set in a distorted world of hand-crafted toy theatres, reinvented and reinterpreted for the digital stage, this production features a collection of gruesome fairy tales including The Juniper Tree, The Moon, and Godfather Death.

This assemblage of macabre tales will creep through trapdoors, lurk in the shadows and transform your living room into a nightmarish fairytale world.

Join us online as we trawl through woodlands to escape the grasps of some of the Grimm Brothers most notorious nasties.
