London theatre on a budget

Getting Cheap or Free Theatre Tickets

 

Tips that will save you money seeing shows

  • Buying tickets online is an easy and effective way to get discounted tickets and gives you more control in getting tickets to the shows you want to see opposed to getting discounted seats at a Leicester Square ticket office.
  • Look at a number of ticket providers as pricing can vary a considerable amount for the same show as will seating position as all the ticketing companies are given a allocation of seats to sell. Here is a selection worth looking at: compare theatre tickets is a good website to start but is still not always the cheapest option so check other websites such as Ticketmaster, Theatre Tickets Direct and Discount-London.
  • If you love theatre register with MyBoxOffice which gives you excellent discounted offers (sometimes free except for booking fee) on shows, concerts and other events being performed in London.

  • If you have children under 16 you can take them to see West End shows for free during the month of August as part of a annual Kids Week promotion (It lasts a month despite the name). It is likely you will need to book in advance as the promotion is understandably very popular.
  • If you have time we suggest you go down to Leicester square to purchase tickets from the box office where tickets are quite often heavily discounted.
