BEFORE YOU BOOK

You’re in for an unforgettable experience - start by planning the basics…

  • When will you go?
    Book early for the widest availability.  Saturday and VIP performances are most popular and sell out first. You can save money by booking early and choosing less busy times. 

  • How many in your group?
    Groups of friends, family, and colleagues say they have the most fun, but the experience is also great for couples and solo guests. To help you bring more friends for less, use our group discount to save £5 per ticket when you bring 6 people or more.  Our Gift Vouchers make great presents to help friends & family visit too.

  • Get the VIP treatment
    Our VIP tickets are perfect for special occasions.  They’re our fastest selling tickets and transform your experience into a full night out in London.

Booking is easy, fast and secure. Plus if your plans change, our Flexible Exchange Policy means you can change your show time (up until 5pm the day before) for a small admin fee.  

Prices increase according to demand so book early to secure your best price.
