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.

“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.”
Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is back for the 5th year at Leicester Square Theatre and it's going to be a bloodbath, with their all-new production of Macbeth.
Upon hearing the weird sisters' prediction, Macbeth and his wily wife take matters into their own hands and burn down everything in their wake.
Fair is foul and foul is fair in this tale of prophecy gone slightly off the rails.
Perhaps an inebriated actor will help the process along?
Featuring Shakespeare's most lovable witches, ghostly best friends, hell-hounds, unhinged wives, enough dead kings to give Game of Thrones a run for its money, and lots of plaid, Scotland storms London in 2020.
Settle in for a pint (or two!) and raise a glass with us.
Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is the classic combination of a Tetris-ed together Shakespeare script, a six pack of professional actors and a luge of booze!
What could possibly go right?
Warning: Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is perfect for those wishing to add to their repertoire of colourful language and not for those who blush easily at the mere mention of the “F” word…
Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Macbeth is playing exclusively at Leicester Square Theatre in 2020.
