BLOG : 2 for 1 Theatre Tickets

Thursday 31 March 2011

If you have a trip planned to London there are a few things you cannot miss out on. These may include some famous sights to see, taking a cruise on the river, eating at world-renowned restaurants, taking a walk on the ever-famous Oxford Street; the list is endless.  Another must-do you might like to add, is watching a play at the celebrated West End district. The West End is London’s very own theatre district, and contrary to what you might have heard about theatre tickets being an expensive affair, procuring cheap tickets to your favourite show can be done simply online. In fact, you might even come across 2 for 1 theatre tickets for sale on some sites.

There are a number of websites dedicated to selling various play tickets on the Internet. These include shows that showcase different genres of theatre like comedy, drama, musical, opera, etc. Each week there are discounts offered on a range of productions that play at the theatre district. Two-for-one theatre tickets are a fairly common offer on these websites. All you have to do is go online and search for London theatre tickets and hunt down a discounted rate that fits your budget. Since, there are over fifty productions running at one time here, choosing a show that will appeal to you may be easier than you think. If this is your first time watching a play in the theatre, opt for something extravagant or funny and entertaining as opposed to an opera or serious drama.

Buying tickets online also has some benefits. You can do this, weeks in advance, so as to plan your trip well. Tickets can be bought in a matter of minutes using your credit card. This is a safe buy as most websites are known and reliable. The trick to getting cheap tickets is being flexible in your choice of dates and times. For instance, matinee shows can be much cheaper than evening shows that pull in more crowds. By compromising on the timing and date, you could end up with up to a 50% discount on shows, and this does not mean you don’t get good seats. Also, check various sites for tickets to shows played on Mondays and Tuesdays. Since, these days are slower than weekends the rates of tickets are also quite low.

2 for 1 theatre tickets can be bought any day of the week, as long as you spend some time to look for the right deal on the listed websites. This way you will get to enjoy the play at a price that fits your budget.
