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.

Jenet Le Lacheur - courtesy Iris Theatre
Hamlet is back from university; back home to a cold little island hanging on to the edge of Europe.
Everything has changed; his country is in crisis; his father is dead; and his uncle, a right-wing strongman, has seized power.
Amidst all this chaos his mother has committed the ultimate betrayal.
As paranoia and rumor swirl around the fractured state, the truth is becoming ever more distant and unknowable.
"To be or not to be, that is the question …"
But can Hamlet find any answers before his own doubts and fears eat him alive?
This modern promenade production will place Shakespeare's greatest tragedy within a contemporary context that will illuminate both the play and our own relationship with its timeless themes.
