Opening Hours

The theatre opens at 6pm to the general public and at 5.30pm if you have a pre-booked picnic or table.

If you are entering the theatre at 5.30pm, please use the Side Gate situated by the café for all pre-booked picnics or tables on The Picnic Deck, the Terrace, Dutch Garden Lounge and Mezzanine. All other gates open at 6pm.

All evening performances finish between 10pm and 10.40pm. Exact running times will be published on the website two days prior to the first night of each production.

Latecomers Policy

There is a strictly enforced latecomers policy. Patrons arriving late will not be permitted to take their seats until a suitable break in the performance – this may be the interval.


At certain times and from particular seats the surtitle system is not always fully visible. The surtitles are an additional service that we provide, but we would ask you to understand the unique nature of our venue.

Leaving the Park

Please exit through the Duchess of Bedford Gate leading to Holland Walk, Abbotsbury Road Car Park Gate or Ilchester Place Gate. View Map of Holland Park [PDF file] (file size 40Kb).
