History

Witness For The Prosecution will be staged in the unique setting of the Chamber inside London County Hall. The Chamber at County Hall is a hidden jewel at the centre of one of London’s landmarks.

Previously used as a council chamber for debating, the chamber has been brought back to life as a courtroom for this very special event.

The Chamber features 210 stalls-style seats with excellent sightlines and generous legroom, and upstairs three Public Galleries with upholstered bench seating and a range of views.

The immersive experience begins as the audience enters through the original grand entrance on Belvedere Road, up a sweeping staircase, through huge wooden doors and into the Chamber, where they take their seats at the heart of a courtroom drama. As the judge presides over witness testimonies and QC cross-examinations, the audience are invited to consider the case before them.

London County Hall is situated on the South Bank of the River Thames beside the London Eye and the Westminster Bridge, and opposite the Houses of Parliament. The entrance of Witness For The Prosecution is located on Belvedere Road.

So that the venue staff can ensure you have an enjoyable experience, please ensure you let the venue staff know when you book your tickets whether you have any specific requirements, such as the need for step free access or if you will be bringing an assistance dog.

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
