Friday Rush

Friday Rush offers a great way to get hold of National Theatre tickets at late notice – even for sold out shows.

Friday Rush

Every Friday at 1pm an allocation of £20 tickets* for shows in all three theatres at the National is released to buy online, for the following week’s performances. Friday Rush tickets are only available to book online and limited to 2 per customer for each show.

Friday Rush tickets are not transferable.
They can only be collected from the Box Office on the day of the performance from 90 minutes before the start of the show and you will have to show the card you paid with on collection.

For more detailed ticket information and additional tickets available on the day, see our help centre

Please note: Friday Rush tickets may also be made available for National Theatre productions appearing at other London theatres.

Friday Rush Tickets are not available for Talks, Platforms and other one-off events.

*Friday Rush tickets are £40 for combined two-show days for My Brilliant Friend Parts One and Two, and  £30 for The Seven Streams of the River Ota.
