It is said that while a movie is equal to three hours out of your life,watching a play at the theatre for three hours can be a life changing experience. The extravagance of London’s West End theatre scene is one such experience that is sure to enchant you and turn you into a theatre lover for life. The West End, also known as the theatre district of the city houses a large number of venues running international productions, fine dining restaurants, hotels, etc, to become a clear favourite destination for a fun day out. The only catch is that theatre tickets off the counter are nothing close to being economical. But if you plan right cheap theatre tickets in London can be procured in a matter of minutes.
All you have to do is follow the simple steps given below, and start planning the rest of your day around the goodies at West End.
• Look for shows online. Doing this well in advance can get you fabulous deals.Ticketing websites have discounted prices for shows, additional discounts for bulk buys, student discounts, cut down prices on matinee and mid-week shows,etc. Taking advantage of such schemes and hitting multiple websites at different times and days can get you great prices and good seats. You might be lucky and get an upgrade for shows that are not selling well, or get up to 60 per cent off on tickets for seeing the right website at the right time.
• Once you have made up your mind about the play you wish to see and have taken a look at some ticket providers, procure the tickets from an official ticketing service. This will ensure that your transaction is secure.

. Another tip to know is that most of the shows have reduced price previews a few days before the opening night. This can be a perfect time to catch a future hit, while bearing in mind that it is still in the process of technical trials. You could make a dinner and show date out of special meal deals that are up for sale, to impress that special someone.
