National Theatre Live

Fantastic shows recorded live from The National Theatre

National Theatre Live brings the best of British theatre to a cinema screen near you.

Whether you show up for serious drama, romcoms or sold-out award-winning hits, we bring you unmissable theatre, filmed live from Britain’s most exciting stages.

Here at The Broadbent we are happy to announce that from November we are commencing the screening of the National Theatre Live content, with a full program planned for 2024.

This will see our theatre transformed to a cinema for the evening, with a 4 metre projection screen in front of the curtains and a 5.1 surround sound system, we will bring the magic of the West End to Wickenby.

National Theatre Live film plays in front of a live theatre audience and optimise everything for the big screen.

Our audience always has the best seat in the house. We tailor the position of our cameras for each production and work closely with technical teams to make sure every element on stage looks just as incredible on the big screen.”
“From Benedict Cumberbatch’s Hamlet to Jodie Comer’s blistering performance in Prima Facie, we make the best of British theatre accessible to audiences around the world.
