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.

Harry feels like life is beginning to tick down, his autumn years spent quietly caring for the community he loves.
Denise thinks life begins in retirement and she's dancing like she's still at high school.
When their paths cross at the village hall, their understanding of the time they have left changes irrevocably.
What do community, growing old, and falling in love really mean? And who gets to decide anyway?
Trestle is a warm hearted, funny and moving look at two retired people brought together each week as they fold away a trestle table in their community hall.
