TheatreCraft to return to Royal Opera House in November 2019

Published 5 March 2019

As National Apprenticeships Week begins, it has been announced that TheatreCraft will take place at the Royal Opera House on 11 November 2019.

This marks the free theatre careers event’s return to the Royal Opera House following the completion of its extensive ‘Open Up’ renovation project to enhance public spaces and the opening of the new Linbury Theatre.

TheatreCraft is the UK’s largest, free careers event for young people seeking an off-stage career in theatre. From direction to stage management, producing to marketing, lighting to designing, TheatreCraft is the only place to be for a unique glimpse into the wide range of careers available ‘behind the scenes’ in theatre.

TheatreCraft is free and open to anyone aged 16-30. Last year nearly 1000 young theatre enthusiasts attended, and over 100 top theatre professionals led a wide variety of workshops, talks and Q&A sessions. The careers Marketplace boasted over 60 exhibitors, with many of the country’s leading theatre companies, arts organisations and education providers represented.

TheatreCraft was originally created by Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust (Masterclass) in 2003, and is organised in partnership with the Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust, the Royal Opera House, the Society of London Theatre and Mousetrap Theatre Projects.

You can find out more about TheatreCraft on the event’s website.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
