A new West End ticket sale is cutting the price of London’s fanciest theatre seats

If you’ve ever wanted to splash the cash on some fancy West End stall tickets then now is probably as good a moment as any, thanks to a new Theatreland ticket promotion – partnered with Time Out – wherein you can get the choicest seats at some of London’s best shows at a special price.

Dubbed The Best of the Best, the promotion covers the following West End blockbusters: ‘Back to the Future’, ‘Aspects of Love’, ‘Frozen’, ‘Groundhog Day’, ‘Oklahoma!’, ‘The Time Traveller’s Wife’, ‘Tina’, ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’, ‘Crazy for You’, ‘Matilda’ and ‘Guys and Dolls’.   

If you book between now and May 1 via this link, you can basically get money off the top rates for all these shows.

We won’t lie: theatre can be an expensive business, and a £40 saving on best seats for the two-part ‘Cursed Child’ is still going to leave you paying £192. Still, £40 saved is £40 saved, and most of the shows participating have a range of prices in the promotion, eg at ‘Back to Future’ you can splash the cash and pay £102 for a £119 seat, or go for a more modest £55 for a £66 seat.

There are splashier sales dotted around the year that offer actively cheap seats; The Best of the Best is going for something a little different, but it’s well worth it if you were thinking of spending big on one of those shows already.

The Best of the Best ticker offer runs until May 1. Book here.
