Nimax Theatres Will Reopen Six West End Theatres For a Special Season of ShowsNimax Theatres will open all six of its West End theatres in sequence from October 22nd 2020, with social distancing guidelines in place.

Each theatre will present a special show, prior to the return of their long running shows.

Details of the special season of shows will be announced over the next fortnight.

From 22 October to 8 November, This is Going to Hurt, written and performed by ex-NHS doctor Adam Kay, will play at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue.

His first performance on Thursday 22 October is a free performance for NHS staff only. Tickets are on sale now at www.nimaxtheatres.com as is registration for NHS staff to enter the ballot for their free performance.

Nimax Chief Executive Nica Burns confirmed that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will definitely return once social distancing has ended and the Palace Theatre can play to full capacity. Also returning are Everybody's Talking About Jamie (Apollo theatre), Magic Goes Wrong (Vaudeville theatre) and The Play That Goes Wrong (Duchess theatre).

"Although with reduced capacities it is not possible to make a profit, we will be earning a contribution to our costs," Burns said. "With the furlough support scheme ending on 31st October, this income will help us retain Nimax's highly skilled, experienced workforce and give work to some of the talented tapestry of freelancers onstage and backstage. We will also be able to support some of the many teams and businesses which together give our audiences a night to remember. Our theatre community cannot wait to get back to work safely."
