Cloakroom and lost property

We have a cloakroom for small items and coats. Just so you know, we can’t store large bags, suitcases or backpacks.

For lost property, please call 0207 863 8198.

Get here early

We recommend arriving 30 minutes before the performance starts, so you can soak up the pre-show atmosphere and have plenty of time to find your seat.

Food and drink

Pre-order your drinks and take in the buzz of the theatre at one of our bars. You can also grab a coffee or a bite to eat (with a side of star spotting) at our Fox Garden Court Cafe. Find more information on eating and drinking below.

Eating and drinking during the performance

We serve a selection of drinks and snacks before the performance and during the interval from our bars on each level. The average price for snacks, including ice cream, is £3.

We understand that people want to bring their own snacks. As a courtesy to other audience members, please don’t eat hot food or packed lunches.

You can take drinks into the auditorium if they’re in plastic bottles or cups, but no glass.

Children

We put on some family-friendly performances but, generally speaking, we don’t allow children under the age of five in the audience.

If the show allows children under five, under twos go free. If you’re a parent or carer, please book aisle seats to make getting in and out easier.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Filming and photography

We don’t allow recording on any cameras, mobile phones or other recording equipment in the auditorium.

Respect

We ask that you treat our staff and your fellow audience members with respect. We have a zero-tolerance approach to any intimidating, aggressive or threatening behaviour.

Covid-19 measures

We’re thrilled to welcome you back to our theatres. Read more on how we’re continuing to prioritise health and wellbeing during your visit here
