Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
The Cervantes Theatre is suspending all public performances until further notice as we want to do everything we can to protect the health and wellbeing of our audiences, artists, actors and theatre team.
The theatre will remain closed until further notice. For those who hold tickets for future performances, we (or the venues of the tour) will contact you over the next few days with options to receive a refund, to credit the ticket price towards a future production, or help us by donating the price of the ticket.
We are paying close attention to the situation and government advice, and will re-open when it is safe to do so.
Many thanks for your support and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
La Casa de Bernarda Alba – UK Tour 2020
By Federico García Lorca
Our award winning production of Lorca’s La Casa de Bernarda Alba tours to several venues outside London. Current dates are:
María de Juan 24/7 Tour – Concert 20th and 21st March
María de Juan comes to London as part of the tour of the 24/7 Album, produced by Manuel Cabezalí, in which the singer and keyboardist Víctor Cabezuelo, leader of the Rufus T Firefly band, has participated.
A conceptual album, mature and very personal, with a depth very rare for an artist her age, but not surprising due to her personal life and professional career. In this conceptual album with songs in Spanish, María de Juan associates the hours of the day with different feelings; 24 hours seven days a week.
María has been invited to be part of the 2020 Sonorama Festival and she promises to be one of the revelations of the year.
María de Juan llega a Londres en su gira de presentación de 24/7 su primer trabajo musical, producido por Manuel Cabezalí, en el que ha participado el cantante y teclista Víctor Cabezuelo, líder de la banda Rufus T Firefly.
Un disco conceptual, maduro y muy personal, sumamente peculiar atendiendo a la juventud de María, lo que no es de sorprender por su trayectoria personal, con ocho temas en castellano que nacen de la asociación de las horas del día con los sentimientos; 24 horas los siete días de la semana.
María de Juan, ha sido seleccionada para el Sonorama 2020 y promete ser una de las revelaciones de este año.
SUPPORT OUR PRODUCTIONS
– THE FRIENDS SCHEME
The Cervantes Theatre runs a friends scheme that enables people to support the charity to continue providing top quality theatre. Productions in off-west end theatres in London cannot be put on solely through ticket sales (prices would have to roughly double for this to be the case) and so every play requires money to be found from elsewhere. We are deeply grateful to our main corporate and institutional sponsors, whose logos with links to their websites are on the bottom of every page of this website together with Arts Council England for their support

OUR JOURNEY TO OPENING THE CERVANTES THEATRE
Watch this video to find out more.
The Cervantes Theatre stages numerous Spanish language plays throughout the year from both Spanish and Latin American playwrights. The productions are performed in Spanish on Monday-Tuesday, and in English Wednesday-Saturday. Our weekly Tuesday matinees are ideal for school groups wishing to visit our 88 seat venue.
All schools who wish to be involved with the programme will be provided with our educational pack a few weeks before the trip, which includes information on our current production and interactive workshops which can be carried out in class either before or after seeing the play.
Visits also include a pre or post-show talk with a member of the creative team, who will talk about the creative process and discuss issues surrounding the play.
