Stage Stalls Guide

Stage Stalls seats are used seasonally for A Christmas Carol and can be used for other productions with in-the-round or immersive staging. In this configuration, the stage extends out into the audience in a cross shape, with blocks of seating on all sides.

The main Stage Stalls seating block is divided into two by the stage itself, and there are two smaller blocks of four rows on either side. There is no central aisle in this section and you cannot leave your seat during the performance.

Views are very clear and often close to the action, and there is an excellent rake so you can see over the heads of people in front. The stage layout means that actors may be performing with their backs to you at times, but the best seats in rows J - M in the smaller side sections are some of the most unique - you will feel completely immersed in the show and get an experience that is not replicated elsewhere.

Seats next to the stage in rows P, Q, R and S are restricted view because of proximity, angle and set design. This is reflected in ticket pricing.


The Penny and Foyer Bar is located 20 steps down from the Stalls level or can be accessed step-free via a lift from the entrance on Webber Street. The Bars are open before, during and after performances.


Gender-neutral toilets are located in the Penny Bar on the basement level. These are easily accessed from the Stalls. There is a block of 11 cubicles with a baby change and one accessible, more spacious, toilet; a block of seven urinals and two cubicles, including one accessible, more spacious, toilet; and one toilet with an enclosed sink.

There is a separate fully adapted wheelchair-accessible toilet close to the alternative entrance with support handrails in place.
