Find out what you can do in our buildings as we reopen the RST for our magical new family musical, The Magician's Elephant.

We're thrilled to be opening our doors to audiences again, as first previews of our new family musical The Magician's Elephant begin tonight, Monday 18 October.

Tonight's show will be the first in-person performance in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre since the theatres were forced to temporarily close in March 2020.

The theatre building will be open from 12pm each day, with Box Office available in person every afternoon. Visitors will also be able to browse for items in our shop on Sundays and show days from 12pm until the end of the interval, and enjoy a cake and coffee in the Riverside Coffee or even a three-course meal in the Rooftop Restaurant before the show.
