We are excited to welcome you back to Leicester Square Theatre next week and as we take another cautious step towards returning to normal we would like to say thank you for your continuing support. In line with Government guidance, we are now easing some of the restrictions within our venues whilst continuing to keep our staff and customers as safe as possible.

Temperature checks are in place upon entry and our team will continue to operate an enhanced cleaning regime, which includes additional high touch point cleaning in our venues.

Social distancing is no longer in place however, Staff will continue to wear face coverings and we request that customers do the same whilst inside the venues.

Hand sanitiser will be provided throughout the venues, which we encourage frequent use of during your visit.

Customers are no longer be required to "check in" to the NHS track and trace app however, should you test positive for COVID-19 within 48 hours of being at the venue we request that you let us know asap on

The health and well-being of our customers, employees and artists are of utmost importance to us so customers must stay at home if they feel unwell or need to self-isolate. Other party members may still attend unless they are also required to self isolate also or showing any symptoms. If you are unable to attend because of COVID – 19 please contact to discuss your options.

We appreciate your continued support and hope to welcome you back to both Leicester Square Theatre and the Museum of Comedy in the future.

Statement by venue owner Martin Witts –

Leicester Square Theatre has been a busy and successful venue for over ten years we are proud of all that we have achieved in this time. The Covid outbreak has been hugely detrimental to our business, to the arts, comedy, music, theatre and venues as a whole across the country. We received the fantastic news on Monday 12th October that we have been granted financial support from the governments Cultural Recovery Fund through the Arts Council England. As a venue that has never in the past received funding or grants, we are wholeheartedly grateful for the support shown. This is a lifeline to our viable, successful business and we look forward to putting it to good use to ensure that the venue can sustain and survive for many more years. #hereforculture
