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.

All's fair in love and war. And videogames.
November 1998. World's End Estate, Chelsea.
Viv's made a decision.
She's left Norfolk and has moved back to London with her son Ben.
When the pair are thrown together with wild fire Kosovar Albanian painter, Ylli, and his enigmatic son Besnik, things start to change.
With the millennium around the corner, NATO joining the fight to free Kosovo and a solar eclipse heading towards World's End, life finally seems to be moving forward …
But first, Ben needs to finish his new video game.
A love story that looks at how trauma changes us, World's End explores the Kosovo War, single parenthood and sexuality - all through the lens of a 90s games console.
