What should I wear to the theatre in London?

We get this question more than any other! The days of ladies having to wear evening gowns and men black tie and tails to attend the theatre is over! Some people chose to dress up for a London show, particularly if visiting the opera or ballet, but most people are dressed in their normal clothes to visit the West End, whether that’s a suit and tie after the office, or a t-shirt and jeans. It is generally unacceptable for men to be bare-chested in the theatre (unless on stage!)
