Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement from Hampstead Theatre: Postponement of performances and building closure

We have been closely monitoring government advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and, in the light of yesterday’s official comments, the presentation of the Hampstead Classics and Downstairs season is suspended, until further notice. This programme includes The Dumb Waiter, The Two Character Play, The Death of a Black Man, ‘night, Mother and, for Hampstead Downstairs, Sleepwalking. We are very proud of this anniversary season and are grateful for the dedication of our outstanding creative teams, performers and staff.

It is with great sadness that we have made this decision, but the welfare of our audiences, staff and artists is of paramount importance to us. We regret any disappointment caused, and we are committed to presenting this season at a later date, to be confirmed in due course. 

If you have booked tickets with us, you will automatically be issued with a credit note, to the value of your tickets purchased.  All ticketholders will be contacted over the coming weeks, please bear with us. If you would prefer a full refund, please contact our box office team on and they will make the necessary arrangements.

We will also be closing the Hampstead Theatre building to the public. We hope to re-open as soon as possible, following government advice.

Hampstead Theatre is a registered charity, and box office income is critical to our survival. Our commitment involves supporting and nurturing playwrights, directors, designers and actors, as well as encouraging young audiences by offering highly-subsidised tickets.
