Lyttelton Theatre, National
The Lyttelton Theatre takes its name from the first board chairman of the National Theatre, Oliver Lyttelton. It was designed with a traditional proscenium arch, much like the typical theatre seen in the West End. The unique quality of the Lyttelton is that the proscenium arch may be adjusted to create different stage spaces, as well as accommodating an orchestra pit. The space offers exceptional acoustics and sightlines for the audience - there are no restricted view seats. It is the second largest auditorium at the National Theatre.
The auditorium has two levels, Stalls and Circle, both of which are raked, offering exceptional views from all seats. The 890-seat theatre is smaller than most West End houses, and offers a very intimate theatrical experience.
Of note, the first four rows in the Stalls do not have arm rests, are slightly narrower seats and are not raked.
