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.

Show details


Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt.

In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future.

And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.
