All British theatres closed in March 2020 and all announcements of future openings were cancelled or delayed. In the autumn some theatres began to re-open with limited seating and other precautions.

Since the numbers are still small, we will list them all on one page rather than dividing by categories.

Note: All listings are subject to change with changing government health regulations
