A night out enjoying London’s thriving theatre scene should be affordable for all, and TKTS is endeavouring to make it so with the return of their hugely popular West End Wednesdays half-price promotion.
The TKTS ticket booth in Leicester Square, open 364 days a year, has been offering theatre-lovers discounted tickets to their favourite shows since it opened in 1980. Now, their West End Wednesday half-price promotion, running throughout the month of May, means that Londoners can enjoy even bigger discounts with tickets to top shows starting from as little as £9.75.
If you’ve been umming and aahing over whether to treat yourself (or someone else) to a night out in London’s West End, the month of May is the perfect time to do so.
Pick a Wednesday in May (or multiple Wednesdays if you wish!) and head down to the booth to get your hands on 50% off tickets to award-winning shows such as Memphis The Musical at Shaftesbury Theatre, The Play That Goes Wrong at Duchess Theatre and Sunny Afternoon at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Big musicals such as The Commitments at Palace Theatre and Thriller Live at Lyric Theatre are up for grabs, as are plays The 39 Steps at Criterion Theatre, Bad Jews at Arts Theatre and the recently-transferred Golem at Trafalgar Studios. See the full list here.
If all the choice leaves you feeling a bit dithery, then the lovely, knowledgable staff at the booth will be more than happy to help. Only want to spend £15? Fancy a dance show? Seven foot tall and need extra leg room? They’ll recommend the show best suited for you.
A not for profit organisation, all profit made at TKTS are ploughed right back into the industry so by buying a ticket you’re not just ensuring yourself a top night out, you’re also supporting the London theatre scene in all its singing, dancing, dramatic, touching, ever-evolving glory.
West End Wednesdays begins on 6 May and will run for four consecutive weeks. Half price tickets for the shows involved will go on sale at 10am each Wednesday at the TKTS booth in Leicester Square. For more information please visit the TKTS website.
