I love going to the theatre but tickets can be pricey so here’s 5 easy ways to save money and enjoy the show.
Tickets for 10p
Yes really! You can bag 10p tickets at the Royal Court Theatre in London. A limited number of these go on sale just one hour before the performance. But at this price, you’ve got to be happy to stand, and may not get the best view in the house! But at 10p for a night out, it’s beyond a bargain!
Save up to 60% on tickets
If you want to book in advance, you can still bag discounts of up to 60% with Theatremonkey.com I’m a big fan of the site and used it several times with great seats, (and savings!), in both the stalls and circle at different theatres.
Wait for the tour
Wait till big name shows go on tour and catch them at your local theatre to save on seat prices. Sign up for advance emails to find out what’s coming your way.
Swap theatres for pub gardens
It’s still summer so enjoy outdoor theatre. Fuller’s pubs are hosting ‘Shakespeare in the Garden’ across 30 pubs with peformances of both the Merry Wives of Windsor and Romeo & Juliet with tickets just over a tenner.
Buy a coffee and watch the show
Pop into the brilliant Theatre Cafe in St. Martin’s Lane in London, buy a coffee and watch the show as the cast of some of the West End shows often pop by for performances.
