Today, we’re celebrating the Prime Number Seats in the Gielgud Theatre.

“I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them.”
Christopher John Francis Boone

Christopher loves prime numbers, we’re celebrating this with our designated Prime Number Seats in the theatre, giving audience members the chance to join in the prime number fun and be in with the chance to win a prize.

Christopher started counting from the first seat at the front of the stalls in the Gielgud Theatre and marked each seat that is a prime number in the sequence with a prime number card.

Prime numbers can only be divided by themselves and 1. There are no known formulas to help discover new prime numbers, which may be why Christopher finds them so interesting!
Be sure to share your photos with us on Twitter and Instagram using #PrimeNumberSeat if you’re lucky enough to be in one of our designated seats!
