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.
Playing until 7 Aug 2021

Following sold-out runs at the New Diorama Theatre in 2019 and Southwark Playhouse in 2020, Operation Mincemeat is back.
Having spent lockdown rewriting the show, weeping and eating biscuits, SpitLip are pleased to announce they will be debuting this newer, bigger and (somehow) even better version in Summer 2021 with 14 exclusive work-in-progress performances.
Singin' in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train, Noel Coward meets Noel Fielding, Operation Mincemeat is the fast-paced, hilarious and unbelievable true story of the twisted secret mission that won us World War II.
The question is, how did a well-dressed corpse wrong-foot Hitler?
Operation Mincemeat won The Stage Debut award for Best Composer/Lyricist, the Off-West End award for Best Company Ensemble, and was listed in The Observer's Top 10 shows of the year.
Commissioned by New Diorama Theatre, co-commissioned by The Lowry.
Supported by the Rhinebeck Writers Retreat.
Additional support from Avalon.
