National Theatre Future Project

“I’ll never forget how exciting the National Theatre felt when I first walked into it; and NT Future is all about opening it up – both metaphorically and physically – to more people.”

Nicholas Hytner, Director of the National Theatre 2003-2015

Your new, transformed National Theatre is almost ready.

Our ambitious plans are starting to become a reality – the Max Rayne Centre and Sherling High-Level Walkway have joined the Dorfman Theatre, Clore Learning Centre, Sackler Pavilion, riverside bar and café, and refurbished restaurant in opening their doors to audiences.

Work on the critical final stage is now underway and will continue over the course of this year with the transformation of our front of house facilities and exhibition areas, dressing room block and IT infrastructure.

We are so close to reaching our £80 million target with just £1 million left to raise and we can only achieve this with your help. It’s not too late to make a difference by naming a seat or a paving stone, or you could have your name included on our Supporters Mural. Please give all you can to make sure you’re part of this exciting future.
