National Theatre - Lyttleton Theatre
National Theatre – Lyttelton Theatre London
Theatre Facts & History
Theatre named after Oliver Lyttleton, the first chairman of the National Theatre Board. The Queen officially opened the National Theatre complex on 25 October 1976.
The Lyttelton is a proscenium theatre, conventional in its basic shape though not in the excellence of its sightlines and acoustics.
There are no eye-blocking pillars, circle rails, or other familiar hazards and you can see and hear almost equally well from each of its 890 seats.
The stalls are on the ground floor, with the circle reached via its own lift and stairs, on the level above. There is a bar in the foyers on each floor.
