Matinee theatre tickets in London are plentiful at this time of year. Book for a matinee, get inside, keep warm and be entertained. Many of the top shows have mid-week matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays, some of the more popular and child-friendly productions have additional afternoon shows during the week, even on Sundays. Some of the latest openings and the long-running musicals are fully booked for the evening shows, especially at the weekends. Matinees give you the opportunity to see the show at an affordable price and still meet up with friends either before for lunch or after for tea or drinks.
Some of the productions can be a bit scary for small children so check that out before you book. Billy Elliot is still a firm favourite, also The Lion King is still going strong after 10 years! Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables are still very popular with the grown-ups so if you haven’t seen them, take your opportunity now before they are taken off. Some of the shows are lined up to go on Broadway in New York in 2011 as they have been so successful.
You can book for matinees for London shows really easily from the comfort of your own home; it is just like shopping online. You can book for just about any musical or play that you want to see through a secure online web-based agency. You don’t need to be concerned about security of your payment; it is quite safe and is all inclusive of Vat and credit card fees, so that there are no cost surprises. Also when you book online, you have the peace of mind that you have reserved your chosen seats.
You can even book right up to the last minute as the theatres need to fill those empty seats. You can even find them for the shows that are normally sold out. One of the most popular shows Priscilla Queen of the Desert has three matinees a week, Thursday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm and Sunday matinees at 3pm. Its run has been extended until next May 2011 so you can book now for next week or next month knowing that it will still be on.
