How to Book Theatre Tickets

London Coliseum is following the Society of London Theatre Ticketing Principles through flexible and safe operational measures that combine the passion and desire for live experiences with the best possible customer experience.

Book with confidence. Exchange with ease.

Buying Theatre Tickets

Buying your theatre tickets is easy to do on our website.

You will need an email address to receive your e-tickets, which can be held on your phone or tablet and added to your wallet/passbook app. Alternatively, you can print your ticket at home and bring it with you if you prefer.

Seating within the auditorium

There are four seating levels to choose from at the London Coliseum. Starting at ground level they are Stalls, Dress Circle, Upper Circle and Balcony.

Please note there is limited lift access to the Balcony and the staircase has 86 steps.

Boxes are available in the Stalls, Dress Circle and Upper Circle levels.

Box office hours 

Should you wish to book your tickets via the Box Office you can do so via Live Chat which is available Monday – Friday at 10.00 to 18.00.

On days when there is an evening performance in the London Coliseum, we open at 10:00 and close 30 minutes after the show starts.

On days when there is only a matinee performance at the London Coliseum times may vary, usually opening 2 hours prior to the start time of the performance and closing 15 minutes after the performance begins.

Booking fees

ENO and London Coliseum charges a non-refundable booking fee per ticket of £3.25. This fee does not apply to ENO Friends in priority booking periods, or to ENO Supporters at any time.

Under 16s

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Children under five are only admitted for specific performances. See each individual show.

Accessible visitors

We recommend that wheelchair users or customers with other access needs join our Access Scheme so you can purchase tickets at half-price or less, subject to availability. 

Please note there is limited lift access to the Balcony and staircase has 86 steps.

What happens if I feel ill and can’t use my ticket?

We will be ensuring that you have maximum flexibility by allowing tickets to be exchanged for another performance of the show you have booked (if available) and we can exchange tickets up to 24 hours prior to the performance – so if someone in your party feels ill, there’s no need to worry.

If you have booked for an ENO opera, your tickets can be exchanged for another ENO performance.

If you have COVID symptoms you must not attend the venue.

Can I get a refund if I don’t want to come?

Refunds are not available, unless a performance is cancelled, but if you are unable to attend due to illness or self-isolation we can offer you an exchange if performances are available.

On the day

Please arrive as early as possible and no later than 15 minutes before the performance starts. Main doors and all bars will open 75 minutes before the performance. Auditorium doors open 30 minutes beforehand.

To avoid delays, please have your tickets ready on arrival.
