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


Second lockdown November 2020 puts all plans on hold. We will keep the listings up, but check with theatres before venturing out.
