A matinee show is an afternoon performance. While not every show has an afternoon slot, most do, and you can catch top London matinee shows playing every day.
Look for matinees that suit your schedule. Whether you are free on Monday, Tuesday, or any other afternoon, you can choose what you want to watch from a wide variety of plays, dramas, and musicals. Matinees are great for people with no free time in the evening. The performances usually take place in the early to mid-afternoon. However, times vary from show to show.
Those who prefer to be home before dark can benefit from watching London matinee shows. Often, families with children prefer to catch their favourite shows during the daytime. Since most evening shows end around 10 pm, it also becomes less convenient for people who live outside London. Those travelling into the city also benefit from matinee shows; the convenient times eliminate the need to rush for late-night transport links.
London matinee shows are a great way to combine high-standard theatrical entertainment and quality time with your loved ones. After a matinee, you still have time to visit one of London's many great restaurants, bars, and cafés. You can finish the performance, then treat yourself to a top-notch meal, head to a bar, and still have time to relax at home and prepare for the next day.
