When are all London shows opening in 2021?
Even though a smattering of West End shows opened in the latter part of 2020, the majority of London theatres have been closed throughout lockdown. With postponed dates becoming somewhat of the norm, it can be difficult to know when to book theatre tickets and guarantee that you will see the show you booked for the original date you selected.
Ahead of the West End’s triumphant return (which we’re hoping is as soon as possible in 2021!) here’s a rundown of when all the London shows are expected to open again, listed by venue name in alphabetical order.
Information will be updated as soon as it is made available, so bookmark this page to ensure you’ve got the latest London theatre news.
