Cheap Seats

Going to the theatre doesn't have to cost a fortune: you just have to sit in the cheap seats!

By Carly-Ann Clements

It's a little-known fact that there are plenty of reasonably priced tickets out there if you know where to look. And luckily for you, we do! We've tracked down the lowest-priced tickets for seven top London shows so you can have a frugal-but-still-fantastic night out! Tickets start from just £14.50, so it's time to take your (cheap) seat, because London just got that little bit more affordable.

What we mean by cheap:

Yes, you can see your Aunt Gladys in her latest am-dram production for a fiver but that doesn't cut the mustard with us (sorry, Aunt Gladys). Just because these tickets are cheap, it doesn't mean they're not top-notch quality. We've selected some of our and your favourite West End productions to show you that you can get brilliant entertainment for incredible prices. They're cheap, they're outstanding, and we love them. Now it's your turn to experience them for yourself.

Get your tickets


Nope, this isn't some kind of 2 + 2 = 5 type situation - you really can get tickets to one of London's most talked-about shows for £10 each! The international five-star smash hit production of George Orwell's infamous dystopian masterpiece is back at the Playhouse Theatre for a strictly limited run, which means you're going to have to be quick if you want to catch it before it ends on September 5.

Sunny Afternoon

You loved their music and you've seen the posters plastered around London town, but it's far too expensive to see the hit musical based on The Kinks, right? Wrong! These (Chirpy, Chirpy) cheap, cheap seats are the lowest priced available. Oh yeah, we really got you now with the low(la) price of just £15.
