Welcoming you to the Royal Court

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Royal Court.

If you have any questions ahead of your visit please do get in touch with the Box Office team via email: boxoffice@royalcourttheatre.com

We’re proud to be See It Safely approved by Official London Theatre, so you can feel confident and safe knowing that staff, artists and audiences are COVID-secure based on the latest government guidelines.

Here are some useful details when booking your tickets and planning your visit:


We strongly advise ticket-holders to arrive early and take their seats in advance of the start time.

Your e-ticket will have come from boxoffice@royalcourttheatre.com and can found by searching “e-ticket” in your inbox. We ask all ticket-holders to have their e-tickets on their phone or printed off before making their way to the theatre.

If you are collecting your tickets from our Box Office, please arrive in good time to do so.

Face coverings

We support audience members, unless medically exempt, to wear face coverings throughout the venue and in the auditorium, out of respect for others, and in support of the cast.

Pre-show drinks and dining

If you’d like to join us for a pre-show drink or bite to eat, we’d recommend booking a table in our Bar & Kitchen.


A cloakroom is available on the stalls levels for customers to check in any large bags or bulky items at £1 per item. Please note that bags may be searched before checking them into the cloakroom.

Latecomers and readmittance

We advise ticket holders to arrive early. If you arrive late or leave the auditorium during the performance, we cannot guarantee that you will be re-admitted.

The Auditorium 

The Jerwood Theatre Downstairs has a system which allows all extracted air to leave the building and fresh air is drawn in from outside. We have been operating our systems for longer periods of time so they come on earlier in the morning and stay on until late. This helps refresh the air before and after audiences are in the space.

What happens if I feel ill and can’t use my ticket?

Please do not attend the venue and contact the Box Office if you

  • believe you may be infected with COVID-19;
  • have experienced symptoms in the last 14 days;
  • have been instructed to self-isolate.

We have been granted the Society Of London Theatre & UK Theatre’s ‘See It Safely‘ mark. This mark certifies that we are complying with the latest Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, to ensure the safety of our staff and audiences.
