Don't book seats at the back if you don't like heights

Dress for the weather - sunhat, warm/waterproof clothing (whatever it takes!)

Seats are much better than they used to be but don't wear anything too special

Picnic benches in the grounds of the theatre get taken early but the park itself is available

Congestion charge is payable before 6:30pm weekdays

Free parking on the Inner Circle in the evening.

Take note of where you park the car as you exit the theatre from the picnic lawn in the dark!

Seats will usually be available on the day for afternoon performances and a standby price of 10 is offered for concessions after 1pm.

If it's a sunny afternoon the higher numbered seats are shadier.

The programme covers all the plays for the season.
