Updated on 22 September 2020

Here it is, what we’ve all been waiting to hear (read). Theatre is back! It’s been a long hiatus during lockdown without live theatre. Our theatres were closed because, of course, safety comes first, but as the country opened up, we awaited our turn with increased anticipation. At long last, we’re making our way back into our beloved theatres, with the likes of Sleepless: A Musical Romance and The Mousetrap leading the way. Read below to see what exciting theatre shows you can book now – note: 2020 is not cancelled!
