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.
