A night out at the theatre is always a special experience. Take your mum to the National Theatre and see Pinnochio, Macbeth or Amadeus - three excellent plays, with great reviews. 

The National Theatre's House Restaurant is the perfect place to make a night of it with stylish dining, serving a contemporary take on classic restaurant dishes. If you're seeing Pinocchio, we recommend trying the Pinocchio inspired afternoon tea, Hi-Diddle-dee-Tea.
