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

Your new, transformed National Theatre is almost ready.

Our ambitious plans are starting to become a reality – the Dorfman Theatre, Clore Learning Centre, new bookshop and riverside bar and café have now opened their doors to audiences.

The new glass Sackler Pavilion, offering direct access into the building from the riverside walk and the Sherling High-Level Walkway, with views over our production workshops, will both open later this winter.The transformation will continue into 2015.

We still need to raise £2.7 million of our £80 million target, 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.
