There are however, 27 seats with no steps to climb and 3 wheelchair spaces (please note that these are not available when booking online). Please mention any special requirements when booking; telephone the Box Office on 020 8553 4466 or simply email boxoffice@kmtheatre.co.uk .

The Box Office is open from 11am - 5pm Tuesday to Saturday. On performance days, the Box Office will be open until 15 minutes after the start of the show.

You can book in person, or by calling 020 8553 4466. We generally reserve tickets without payment for five working days, or until thirty minutes before the performance, whichever is the sooner. 

Alternatively, pay instantly and confirm your booking by using a credit or debit card: we accept Mastercard, Visa, Delta and Visa Electron. Unfortunately, we cannot accept American Express Cards.

Once tickets have been purchased, we are unable to exchange or refund.

The Kenneth More Theatre was officially opened on January 3rd 1975. Since the front doors opened, the KMT has prided itself on serving the local community by offering a variety of professional and amateur productions. Its programme is diverse, and throughout the majority of the year, each week sees a different production being staged.

It is particularly renowned within the local area for its annual pantomime, a festive treat for families which generally runs from mid-December to mid-January.
