Stuck for something to get Dad this Father's Day? We've put together some fab theatre choices...
Books he’ll never read, Socks he’ll never wear, DVDs he’ll never watch and tools he’ll never use. When it comes to Father’s day on the third Sunday of June, it’s usually a case of the same uninspiring gifts. Why not get dad something he will make use of this Father’s day? Why not get him London Theatre Direct vouchers and give him the gift of theatre!
You have to feel sorry for dad over the years. On Mother’s day, mum gets pampered, loved, looked after, flowers, chocolates and presents but when Father’s day comes along, the same effort just isn’t quite made. But it should be. After all, dad was the one harassing the opposing football team’s parents and general being embarrassing at sports matches, yet every Sunday morning he would drag himself out of bed to get there and stand in the pouring rain willing you on to score the winning goal. He taught you how to ride a bike, stayed up late helping with homework that he pretended to know something about and like it or not, he shaped the person you are today. Our pet hates, our taste in fashion, music and sports, our mannerisms, our looks, our love lives, our religious and political views were all in some way affected by dad. For many of us he was the person we wanted to be. For the lucky few of us he was a hero. So this Father’s day let’s thank him properly.
Theatre vouchers are the ideal gift this Father’s day as you give dad the freedom to choose from some of the world’s best theatre productions. In the West End there is a show for everyone, from the hilarious Jeeves and Wooster that dad will undoubtedly remember from the 60’s and 90’s, to the dark and gripping Woman in Black. Witty comedy in the Monty Python mould with Spamalot and even some of his favourite music with Freddy Mercury in We Will Rock You! From comedies to musicals and operas, there’s something for every dad in the country in London.
