There are two types of tickets for the Courtyard.

Stalls (Seated) are wooden benches, on three sides. Gallery (Standing) is raised above the stalls and offers great views of the stage. There is a handrail to lean on.

Tickets are available in fixed groups; you can purchase a ticket to admit 1, 2, 3 or 4 people.

Please ensure that your group belongs to the same household or support bubble. Each group will be distanced from other groups by 1 metre, in line with government guidance.
