COVID-19 Update

Here at LST and MoC the health and well-being of our customers, employees and artists are of utmost importance.

Due to recent Government advice we are very sad to say that we will be closing both Leicester Square Theatre and the Museum of Comedy with immediate effect.

We are closely monitoring the situation and will continue to review policies and practices in line with official guidelines as they develop but for the time being the venues will be closed until 31 May. At which time we'll send an update for the shows that follow. 

All shows that fall within this time period are hereby postponed until further notice. We are working with the promoters of all postponed shows to reschedule for a future date. Your tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates and you will keep the same seats. We will notify you as soon as an alternative date has been agreed. Once this is announced, if you are unable to attend the new date, please contact us so we can talk you through your options.

You, our loyal customers will be the first to know in the event of any changes or updates in the coming weeks.

If you would like to purchase tickets for shows later in the year our website is operating as normal

We hope you're all keeping well and really look forward to seeing you soon.
