Circle guide

The Circle is well-raked throughout and does not feel distant from the action, with unobstructed views of the stage. Rows face the stage head-on, with no overhang or safety rails to add restrictions.

Slips seats run down the sides of the auditorium and offer side-views of the stage. Seats towards the rear of the Circle may feel slightly more distant, but this does not affect enjoyment. Seats are comfortable, with better legroom towards the rear of the section.


The Long Bar and the Olivier Café can be reached by stairs or a customer lift.


Men’s and Women’s toilets are available on this level. A fully adapted toilet is situated in the foyer.
