Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak
London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.
Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.
Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.
We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.
