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. If you wish to book a box, please note that you will need to purchase all of the seats in that box, regardless of the number in your party. For example, if two of you wish to sit in Box 12 in the Dress Circle, you must purchase all four seats.

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 londoncoliseum.org 10.00 to 18.00.

On days when there is an evening performance in the London Coliseum our hours are 10.00-20.00.

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 charges a non-refundable booking fee per ticket of £2.25 which will be shown when you select your seats. 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 (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 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.

Entry Requirements

At the London Coliseum you will not be checked for any COVID certification, however we recommend that you take a Lateral Flow Device test 24hrs before your arrival to the venue.

Please arrive as early as possible and no later than 15 minutes before the performance starts. Main doors and all bars will open 90 minutes before the performance. Auditorium doors open 60 minutes before.

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

Face Coverings
If you are able, we continue to advise you to wear face-coverings during your visit however this is a personal choice.

We encourage all customers to be mindful and respectful of others and their decision about wearing a face covering.
