As you'd expect we're doing everything we can to keep you safe so we're keeping an eye  on government guidelines for safety, social distancing regular cleaning and reduced  audience capacity. Tickets must be booked online and in advance in allocated groups and  our Duty Management team will be on site to look after you throughout your visit.

Look out for some more exciting news from our in-house Associate Artists soon as we bring  you some BRAND-NEW fringe theatre from some of London's most exciting theatre  companies. We've been cooking up some brilliant plans for you over Lockdown and can't  wait to show you! 

The theatre is also open for Covid-Secure rehearsal bookings, workshops, filming,  photography and other uses of the space on very favourable rates for emerging theatre  companies. For more information visit our website.

More information about new shows will be  announced on our social media and our website. Tickets for “The Man” are on sale NOW.  

“After such a tough 6 months for our industry and the amazing theatre makers we are  privileged to work with, it’s such a joy to be able to reopen The Lion & Unicorn Theatre as we  continue in our work to create a destination fringe theatre venue for London. We’ve got  some really exciting plans coming up, and we’re more determined than ever to continue to  be a bit of a beacon of hope that theatre, and fringe theatre in particular can and will return  better than ever before.” - David Brady, Artistic Director 

The Lion and Unicorn Pub is also open in line with government guidance for the safe  reopening of hospitality venues. Offering a proper British Sunday lunch, daily brunches,  coffee, wide selection of beers, cask ale and premium wines to quench your thirst in THE best  heated beer garden alongside the best pub dog in London, there’s no better place to plan  your pre or post show dinner or drinks (please note all bookings must be made in advance  with table service only.) 

AND - our submissions policy has reopened - Meaning that if you’ve got a show, a burning  idea, or want some support to get your work made, send us your show via the submissions  process on our website. We offer support, guidance for emerging theatre makers to get their  work made in a warm and generous environment.  

Social Distancing is likely to affect the theatre industry for some time, and this has placed a  severe restriction on our activity for many months.

You can donate via the link  below for a range of rewards and experiences via the theatre, and every penny raised will  go towards helping us support the brilliant artists and creatives that we work with.

We’re delighted to welcome audiences back to the theatre and we’re so thrilled to see  what the future holds.
