Olivier Seating Plan / Lyttelton Seating Plan


The National Theatre was designed by Denys Lasdun and opened by the Queen in 1976. It has three theatres, The Olivier, The Lyttelton, and the small Dorfman Theatre (formerly Cottesloe). There is also a small 'Temporary Space' venue until around 2016. Shows are usually in repertoire. The National also hosts several Platform performances where discussions take place with various people in the industry.

The National complex has several cafes/bars, restaurant, and a bookshop. Before a show there are free live acts in the Olivier foyer, as well as several free exhibitions. Back Stage Tours are also available most days.
