Venue overview

The Arts Theatre is situated in Leicester Square, in the heart of the West End. Opening in 1927 as a private members club, the venue is now an independent theatre which provides a platform for smaller plays and musicals.

The auditorium is intimate, with a capacity of 350 across the Stalls and the Circle. It is a traditional black box theatre, which boasts good views throughout.

After a refurbishment in 2009, the Arts Theatre hosts comfortable seats and good overall sight-lines. Slight restrictions can be found at the ends of Row J, which are behind pillars, and Rows M and N, which are affected by the Circle overhang. Slip seats in the Circle are restricted due to the angle of the seating.

Good value seats

The Circle Slips are usually heavily discounted, due to facing side-on to the stage. These seats can be excellent value for money, particularly seats 8-14, which are in front of seats 1-7. As they are angled towards the stage, some leaning is required, but the whole stage can be seen. These are benches rather than theatre seats.

Premium seats

The best seats for viewing the action on stage are the centre of rows B-H in the Stalls and the centre of rows B-C in the Circle. From these seats you will be able to clearly see all the action on stage without any kind of viewing restriction or inconvenience.

This seat is sold as restricted view as the stage is high. There is still a good view of the action and you don't miss much of the stage. This is a good value seat if you don't mind looking up at the stage.... More

This theatre is a relatively small space, which means despite this seat being towards the back of the Stalls, you do not feel distant and there is no restriction to your view. I could see everything that went on and felt right within the action and a... More
