About Lyttelton Theatre

The Lyttelton Theatre takes its name from the first board chairman of the National Theatre, Oliver Lyttelton. It is one of three auditoriums in the National Theatre: the Olivier Theatre and the Dorfman Theatre. The 890-seat theatre is smaller than most West End houses, and offers a very intimate theatrical experience.

The theatre was designed with a traditional proscenium arch. The proscenium arch may be adjusted to create different stage spaces, as well as accommodating an orchestra pit.

Lyttelton Theatre Seating Information

The auditorium has two levels, Stalls and Circle, both of which are raked, offering exceptional views from all seats. The space offers exceptional acoustics and sightlines for the audience — there are no restricted view seats.
