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.
Booking to 30 Jan 2022

The scene is set when a group of people gathered in a country house cut off by the snow discover, to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst.
Who can it be?
One by one the suspicious characters reveal their sordid pasts until at the last, nerve-shredding moment the identity and the motive are finally revealed.
