Booking Enquiries
Performances are on sale without social distancing, in line with government regulations at the time of the performance. We will update our audiences if regulations change.

Our online booking system doesn’t allow customers to leave isolated seats. We do this in order to prevent gaps in the auditorium.

Currently seats are on sale from Row B in the stalls, and it is possible that Row A will go on sale at a later date, so please be aware that purchasing seats in Row B does not guarantee that you will be in the front row.

Please note that our boxes have a slightly restricted view. Seats marked with an ‘i’ on the seating plan have a restricted view. 

If you require any help with your booking then please contact our Box Office by emailing or calling 020 8534 0310.
