Booking for the Garden Theatre

We can't wait to welcome you back to our live performances in the Garden Theatre this summer.

Because the Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Garden Theatre is an outdoor space and will need to follow all the safety guidance around Covid-19, attending a show will be a different experience to watching a performance in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre or Swan Theatre.

If you want to know more about our Covid-19 procedures and how we will be keeping our staff, actors and visitors safe during these shows, please visit our Your Safety page.

Here are some frequently asked questions about accessing our outdoor performances and booking for the Garden Theatre.

If we have to cancel the performance after the interval, ticket holders will be offered a free exchange into another performance but refunds won’t be available.

If you find you cannot attend the performance for a reason to do with the pandemic, we will offer a free exchange or credit note up to 24 hours before the performance.
