Theatre tickets might be a cracking Christmas present for your culturally savvy loved ones, but if you were scared off by some sky-high prices in December, plenty of sites are selling their leftovers for cheap right now. We’ve scoured the web from the Royal Circle to the Stalls for some of the hottest deals this January, so get on them before they’re gone!
TodayTix seems to be continuing their oh-so-helpful habit of selling off discounted theatre tickets across London in 2023, with plenty of big shows getting the Rush or Lottery ticket treatment. Rush tickets are usually released at 10am on the same day as a performance and are a great way to see, for example, Aaron Sorkin’s To Kill A Mockingbird adaptation for just £25. The Lottery is a bit more of, well, a lottery, but it is probably the only way you’ll get decent seats for shows like Hamilton or Harry Potter and the Cursed Child without spending an arm and a leg.
There are a bunch of different offers for London shows here right now, alongside a ‘last minute’ section not unlike the rush tickets TodayTix offers. Shows with their prices slashed at the moment include:
Bat Out Of Hell
The War Of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience
Pretty Woman: The Musical
The Choir of Man
The Dry House
A few more West End shows are available here. Cheap theatre ahoy!
The Lion King
Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage
Back to the Future: The Musical
The Book of Mormon
Tina: The Tina Turner Musical
To Kill a Mockingbird
Matilda the Musical
Bonnie and Clyde
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Punchdrunk: The Burnt City
No London-centrism here, but this might be the place to go for anyone looking for tickets outside the capital. There’s a big January sale on every year, which covers cities across the UK and in 2023 covered shows from The Shawshank Redemption to The Mousetrap. Cancel that booking for the London Bridge Premier Inn, and see some (relatively) local theatre instead.
