How to get tickets for King Lear


Many performances of King Lear are currently sold out or have limited availability, but you still might be able to get tickets in the following ways.

Access Performances
A limited number of tickets are available for audiences who need to make use of our access provisions at our Audio Described, Captioned or Relaxed Environment performances. These can be booked via the Box Office on 020 7359 4404 or contact If you have issues with speaking or hearing, you can also book via the text relay service Relay by BT.

Check Online For Returns
We often get tickets returned to us in advance. If so, we make these available to buy online from 3pm daily, check for tickets here>

In Person Returns
If a ticket is returned just before a performance, it will be offered to people waiting at the theatre on a first-come, first-served basis. We regularly have tickets that become available last minute so it is always worth trying. You don’t have to stand in line while waiting for tickets, simply let the Box Office know when you arrive and they’ll get your details. You can then relax in our Café & Bar or in the foyer, and they’ll call your name if a ticket comes up. To help us serve you faster please bring cash.
