London Shows 2021: Great theatre to look forward to this year

By Kitty Underwood & Hira Desai First Published 28 December 2020, Last Updated 7 July 2021

We’ve put together this list of London shows 2021 to highlight all the exciting theatre that we’ve got to look forward to as theatre returns #BackOnStage. Performances until 19 July will be socially distanced but from 19 July onwards, following the government roadmap, theatres will be able to play to a full capacity.

Booking advance tickets is a great way to support theatres at the moment, and you can get a date in the diary to get excited about! And because we know it’s important to have flexibility in these times, we stand by our ‘Book with Confidence. Exchange with Ease‘ pledge.

You can also look out for our See It Safely mark which means you can feel confident the show you are booking for is Covid-secure and following the latest Government guidance for live arts events. In case you have any questions, we’ve popped together a handy guide to Everything you need to know for your next theatre trip.

Whether you’re looking for debut plays or classic West End shows reopening for us all to enjoy once again, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in this list. Theatre is nothing without its audiences and we are thrilled to welcome our you back! Please show your support by sharing your theatre experiences using #BackOnStage.

All of these shows will be playing with social distancing measures in place.
