Having recently visited I have to say staff at the box office are the most unhelpful staff you could ever wise to meet. Unknowledgeable, snotty up their own backsides and dam right rude!

I caught the number 4 bus from Waterloo Station, which I then stepped off within a few minutes walk of the theatre. I joined the queue to try my luck with day tickets (it was around 11.15am on a Thursday morning) After a few moments...More

Always count on the Almeida for a quality performance with innovative staging. Saw Hamlet yesterday and did not disappoint. Seating advice - stick to the left hand side of the stalls if you want to make a swift exit, gets a bit blocked up trying...More
