Many people thought that it wouldn’t be able to last out the recession but they have been proved wrong and, in fact, the theatre world is stronger than it’s ever been before and, with new offers geared to get more bums in seats when the curtain rises, there has never been a better time to take in a bit of culture. If you’re under-25 then you should definitely be taking advantage of a great new scheme which means that you can get free theatre tickets for certain shows, including ones on the west-end! For those of you who aren’t lucky enough to be that young then Theatre Packages can be a great way to save money and treat yourself to a night of wonderful entertainment and culture.
Don’t worry if you don’t feel like engaging in a high-culture night of theatre, there are so many shows and so many different types of show that your are sure to be able to get yourself suited. This website will take a closer look at some of the biggest shows which are currently gracing the West-End but, obviously, we don’t have time to talk through all the shows which are on offer, nor are we looking at the smaller but often innovative off-West-End shows which are great in number but small in audiences; if you are thinking of heading to the West End to see a show then make sure you do your own research and look into any show which you fancy; by taking a look at the storyline and theme of the show you can be more sure as to whether you will enjoy a particular show or not. Our website is a start, but it is really designed as a launching pad to send you off on your own theatre adventures.
If you have young children then there are definitely some classic family shows which will go down a treat; Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to name but two. However, not all shows on the West-End will be suitable for families and thus, once more, you will need to do your research- many shows will show their age restrictions very clearly and so it is hard to get caught out. The size and scope of the West End mean that you will be spoilt for choice and there are shows to suit every age and every person.
