3 new venues announced within the National Theatre
21st October 2014

It has been a feature of the South Bank since the seventies but now the National Theatre is having a makeover. 

Three new venues within the iconic building will open their doors today. The people behind the facelift hope it will make the National more than just a theatre.
A pub, cafe and brasserie will offer food and drink throughout the day, from London beers on tap to beef bourguignon, and there's also a bookshop. 

Promising something for everyone, the National Theatre hopes to attract a whole new crowd to London's already buzzing South Bank.
