BLOG : Where can I buy Theatre Gift Vouchers?
Sunday 17 July 2011
Searching for a great gift idea? A trip to the theatre makes a great gift and if you don't know which show or when then theatre gift vouchers are ideal, which leaves you asking where can I buy theatre gift vouchers?
Various options are available. On the high street there are retailers who sell theatre tokens which have the advantage of never expiring and can be used at theatres across the country as well as all London West End theatres.
Also most good ticket agencies do their own theatre gift vouchers, which can be used just with their own company and generally gives a user a year to use them although you can normally book beyond the expiry date if you are well organised enough to know what you are doing in 2012! As like most things these days the easiest way to buy theatre gift vouchers is online via a company's website and any company selling vouchers will advertise this along with the terms and conditions and how to redeem them.
Theatre gift vouchers can also be a great idea for businesses rewarding their employees or for lottery winners etc at charity events allowing the lucky winner to then book up whatever show they would like. As theatre tickets can be quite expensive even if the vouchers doesn't cover the full amount, the user can then pay the balance on a card but still able to enjoy a great discount.
In the West End alone there are so many productions to suit everybody's taste whether you want to see a popular musical, comedy or dramatic plays, dance and ballet.
A lot of musicals are long running so you can often book tickets on offer making your theatre gift vouchers stretch even further without losing on quality of seats and although plays are generally with a more limited run the tickets tend to be cheaper in the preview dates before the official press night so it is worth booking early for the first performances.
Keep an eye on the company's website as new shows are opening all the time and often reviews and items of news are posted so you know all about what is available and if it is up your street. Smaller theatres also do more experimental productions if you are looking for something a bit different and the tickets are often not so expensive as a big musical production.
So for whatever occasion - a birthday or christmas present, a treat for the parents or just to make someone's day special, you can be sure theatre gift vouchers will really make the recipient happy and give them the opportunity to enjoy a special occasion at the theatre. So just search where can I buy theatre gift vouchers
? and you will be on your way to buying a great gift!
