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.

On the set of a new film about Victorian artist JMW Turner, young actress Lou is haunted by an unresolved history.
Meanwhile, in 1840 Londoners Lucy and Thomas try to come to terms with the meaning of freedom.
Moving between London past and present, we embark on a powerfully personal voyage through time.
Directed by Miranda Cromwell, and first staged at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, this astonishing and fiercely political new play by Winsome Pinnock was named winner of the 2018 Alfred Fagon Award.
