London Theatre Week returns, celebrating 5 years of increasing access to theatre in the UK
The highly anticipated performing arts celebration spotlighting dynamic musicals and award-winning plays in London’s West End, makes its return this summer. Marking its 5th-year anniversary, the campaign offers audiences the opportunity to get tickets to the best of West End theatre at accessible prices by booking between 21 August to 3 September.
Locals and tourists alike will have the chance to make the most of the final days of summer by experiencing a wide-range of productions with reasonable tickets from £15, £25, or £35. Now in its fifth year, London Theatre Week is proud to have grown to a world-renowned initiative, meaningfully increasing accessibility to the performing arts since its inception. Having started with just 37 participating shows in its inaugural year, London Theatre Week has seen over 140 shows participate, performing across 85 local theatre venues, and has sold over 1 million tickets to its audience members. Both new shows like Back to the Future and beloved favourites like The Phantom of the Opera have taken part, bringing joy to audiences seeing high-calibre productions on offer in London’s glittering West End for a fraction of the cost.
