Nocturne is a live double-album by Siouxsie & the Banshees, released in 1983 and remastered in 2009, which features performances recorded at two shows at the Royal Albert Hall on September 30 and October 1, 1983, featuring Robert Smith (of The Cure) on guitar.

Most of the songs are from Juju and A Kiss in the Dreamhouse, with a couple of non-LP tracks ("Pulled to Bits" and "Eve White/Eve Black"). Also included is a live version of The Beatles' "Dear Prudence," a studio version of which the Banshees recorded earlier that year and released as a single.

Its video version was released on DVD in 2006. Bonus features included the "Play At Home" TV special from 1983, "Dear Prudence" music video, and performances from The Old Grey Whistle Test.
