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.

Show details


When happy-go-lucky Jack is tempted into selling his family's beloved cow for a bag full of magic beans, he finds himself tangled in an adventure of GIANT proportions.

Join Jack on his journey up an enchanted beanstalk as he tries to outwit a rampaging giant, all with the help of his larger-than-life mum - Dame Trot.

This year's production of Jack and the Beanstalk will welcome a fantastic new team to join Olivier Award-winning Clive Rowe, as well as many of the familiar faces that make Hackney Empire's panto one of the best in the land.

Full creative team and casting will be announced in due course.

We're proud to present West End quality at East End prices, so book today to guarantee some much-needed magic for your loved ones this panto season.

With tickets starting at just £10, there's no need to sell the family cow!
