Theatre Deals

January 25th, 2023 / / 8 Comments »

For those planning a Budget Break to London you’ll be looking to keep the costs down on attractions as well as find a deal on theatre tickets for those looking to take in a show, (more details below).

1.. Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, (£5/£10 tickets)

The Globe Theatre in London has 700 standing tickets available for each performance priced from just £5 per person!  There is new pricing in place for 2023 so that half of all standing tickets will remain at £5 but the other half will increase to £10pp; still pretty good value! Whilst the standing area does have one of the best views of the theatre, it does mean you will need to stand throughout the performance.  Performances can last 2.5 to 3 hours including an interval.

2. London; £5/£10 Tickets to The National Theatre

Sign up for the Entry Pass at the National Theatre, (for those aged 16-25 years), and take advantage of discounted tickets.  The National Theatre, located on the South bank in London, allocates a number of discounted tickets for every performance.  As this is a popular scheme, it is worth taking note of when booking opens for each performance.  More information available at The National Theatre Entry Pass.

      Hi Rose, thanks for the feedback regarding our theatre deals. Topdogdays is independent of all theatres as we simply let you know where the deals are. If there is a particular theatre you are looking at, let me know and I’ll see if I can help at all? Liz

    Do you get tickets for victory Theatre in Halifax please?

    • Hi Patricia, we do not run the theatre ticket offers ourselves but just let you know where you can pick up offers & cheap ticket promotions on theatre tickets. Unfortunately we cannot find much information regarding Victory Theatre in Halifax except to say upon their site it states ‘there are a wide range of discounts available, which vary depending on each individual show. Please discuss your booking with the Box Office.’ So it seems it might be best to contact them directly to discount the promotions running for the show you are interested in. Good luck:)

  3. Any deals Theatre Royal Newcastle upon Tyne

    • Hi David, I can see that the Theatre Royal, Newcastle offers discounted standby tickets, (half price tickets from 2 hours before the performance). You can also find discounts on restricted view seats but worth double checking with the venue before you book.

  4. Cinema, theatre and family days out tickets please.
