CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

Explore the history of public execution in London at this landmark new exhibition. Public executions were a major part of Londoners' lives for centuries. More frequent in London than in any other town, these morbid spectacles attracted thousands of onlookers at locations across the capital. From Smithfield to Southwark, from Banqueting House to Newgate Prison, executions became embedded in London's landscape and people's lives. Even today, hints of this uncomfortable past can still be seen across the city.
