More major theatre ticket offers
The Barbican's programme is exceptionally diverse, as you'd expect from the largest performing arts centre in Europe. In general, though, it's good for challenging European theatre and more experimental British work. The Young Barbican scheme offers £5, £10 and £15 tickets to people aged between 16 and 25, subject to availability.
Kevin Spacey's Old Vic is a great place to catch high-profile actors – Ian McKellen, Robert Lindsay and Neve Campbell have trod its boards in recent years. Under-25s can claim £12 tickets for every performance thanks to the Aditiya Mittal scheme: call 0844 871 7628 to book.
The UK's flagship theatre for new writing has always placed emphasis on emerging British talent. All tickets to both its two theatres cost just £10 on Mondays, with half only made available to purchase on the day of performance from 9am online. Reduced price tickets are available to students and under-25s for all performances.
Built nearly 400 years after the original Globe burned to the ground, Shakespeare's Globe has been an unbridled success, underpinned in part by its educational programme and its commitment to faithfully recreating an original 'Shakespeare in performance' experience from April to October. Live the groundling dream: there are 700 standing tickets available for each performance, costing £5 each. Concession available on all seated prices.
