When should I arrive?

Doors to the theatre open between quarter and half an hour before the performance starts. Half an hour is plenty of time to collect tickets, get a programme, buy a drink and catch your breath - before we take it away again.

If you arrive late then you may be asked to wait until a suitable break in the performance before you enter and sometimes you may not be able to enter at all. We only do this if it's necessary to avoid disrupting the production and it will be clearly stated on your ticket. If you have any concerns, please contact the Box Office on 020 7922 2922 or email

Where will I sit?

The Young Vic gives theatre artists the freedom to create without barriers, so we have the most flexible auditorium in London. Seating will never be quite the same from one show to the next. In our Main House, reserved seating allows you to choose your own seat when booking - just click on the 'Book tickets' link on the individual show page. We operate an 'unreserved house' in The Maria and The Clare, which means that your ticket won't have a seat number on it and you can choose where to sit when you arrive. You'll find any extra seating information for each production in our What's on section.

Lucky Dip Tickets

Almost all our shows sell out, with returns queues around the block for hits like Yerma and A Streetcar Named Desire and we want to make sure as many people get to see our productions as possible. With Lucky Dip tickets you buy your ticket in advance, and find out your seat number just ahead of the performance. You might get one of the best seats in the house, or a standing spot. Here at the Young Vic, we don’t sell restricted view – so wherever you are, you’re guaranteed great sightlines.

Accessibility Requirements

We are happy to provide assistance if you have access requirements. Please let us know in advance of your visit and we'll do whatever we can to help. Head to our Access For All page for more info.
