Event Details

To say that Benedict Cumberbatch’s highly anticipated portrayal of Hamlet is set to be one of this year’s theatrical highlights seems like stating the obvious. Having seized the world’s attention with his mesmeric take on Sherlock in the acclaimed BBC update of Conan Doyle’s famous detective adventures, Cumberbatch has barely been out of the limelight in recent years, claiming numerous awards for his stage and screen work and effortlessly assuming a position among the country’s leading thespians.

Now, at the height of his powers, Cumerbatch is set to take on Shakespeare’s most challenging – and iconic – role in Lyndsey Turner’s new production of Hamlet at the Barbican. Unsurprisingly the entire run is sold out but 30 £10 day seats will be made available per day from 10.30 AM so there’s still a chance to grab one of the year’s hottest tickets if you can make it to the Barbican early enough.
