Getting theatre tickets in London can be simple, if you know exactly what to do. Catching a theatre show at the West End district can be a lot of fun and to enhance your experience, below are some tips on procuring tickets to plays without any hassle. It is no secret that the best way of getting your hands on anything nowadays is through the Internet. Be it planning trips, booking accommodations at hotels, buying real estate or simple movie tickets, everything seems so much better when you can purchase things from the comfort of your home.

London theatre tickets normally come at a premium cost, but there are some clever ways to get around this. Following are some quick ways that might come in handy while planning your next visit to West End in London.

• If you are 26 years old or younger, you can get free and discounted tickets for a number of productions. An Entry Pass from the National Theatre can get you cheap tickets for most of their productions. Tuesdays at the Arcola Theatre you can buy a ticket for much cheaper by paying what you can afford. This gives you a chance to enjoy London theatre without paying a premium price.
• Cheap theatre tickets are available for the best shows, so the trick is to be persistent and keep browsing through ticketing websites until you find the deal that assures you of a great discount without compromising on the seats. Empty seats translate into lost business for the production and the closer it is to the start of the show, the lesser the tickets are priced. This works in your advantage as tickets may be sold at even 50% discount.
• You can end up saving on ticket cost through being flexible too. This means opting to see a play on working days of the week. Another money saving tip could be to watch a production that has released recently. The first two weeks are when the production works hardest to fill seats. Also, catching matinee shows can get you awesome deals on tickets for your favourite shows.

The Internet has made buying theatre tickets in London exceedingly easy. All you need to do is choose a play you wish to see from a variety of productions and search for discounts offered on the shows. Be sure to compare prices so that you can be certain of having gotten the best deal available.
