National Theatre

Britain's National Theatre is one of the key elements of the South Bank arts complex alongside BFI Southbank and the Royal Festival Hall.

The National Theatre was established in 1963 and was initially based at The Old Vic, moving to its purpose-built home designed by Denys Lasdun in 1976.

The building houses three performance spaces - the Olivier Theatre, the Cottesloe and the Lyttelton. The foyers are regularly used for exhibitions and musical recitals.
