Venue hire at National Theatre

National Theatre

Hire this venue for your own event - it has seven function rooms the largest of which can hold a maximum of 400 guests and the smallest is ideal for 12.

Each year the three superb venues in the National Theatre put on a significant proportion of the world's best productions. From intimate character studies in the Dorfman Theatre, to grand spectacles in the Olivier, the National Theatre is the spiritual centre of the British theatrical tradition. Free music in the foyer, experimental outdoor performances on the roof and terraces, backstage tours, bars, restaurants, cafes and remarkable (if controversial) architecture complete the picture of the greatest theatre in the world. The Temporary Theatre, formerly opened as The Shed during the Dorfman's closure for refurbishment, will remain in situ until 2017 and the recently opened Clore Learning Centre offers a new dedicated space for learning at the National, transforming the theatre's approach to education with events and courses for all ages. Exploring all forms of theatre-making, from playwriting to technical skills, the courses will be frequently led by the National's own artists and staff.
