The Lyttelton is a proscenium theatre, let its conventional shape and design give you the traditional theatre experience as it provides you with excellent sight-lines and acoustics.

Moving theatre

It is the second-largest of the three auditoriums at the National Theatre in London. No matter which seat you choose of the 890 available, you'll enjoy the wondrous theatrical performances held here in top quality.

Aside from an impressive quality, the Lyttelton Theatre has another trick up its sleeve. Unlike most traditional theatres, the stage is adjustable. You can make it into an open-end stage, add a forestage, or create an orchestra pit for up to 20 musicians. 

With a regularly updated selection of performances being held regularly, no visit here is the same! So go ahead, check what's on and prepare to immerse in the world of theatre.
