How do I dress to go to a West End theatre?

The days of strict dress codes at the theatre are long gone, so you can wear whatever you are comfortable in. You’ll notice a wide range of dress among different patrons, from t-shirts and jeans to full cocktail attire, but nobody will bat an eye as long as you dressed appropriately enough for any casual public event. If you are attending a premiere venue or a show that is happening on a holiday (such as New Year’s Eve), you may opt for formal attire to fit in with the crowd.
