Free theatre tickets for Williams and Catherines at tkts!

Posted on April 26, 2011

To celebrate the royal wedding, tkts – the official half-price and discount ticket booth in London – will be offering one free ticket to a top London show to the first ten Catherines and Williams to visit the booth on Friday, April 29. 

Based in the Clocktower Building on the south side of Leicester Square, tkts will be open from 10am to 7pm on the day of the royal wedding. The lucky Catherines and Williams will be able to select a ticket to see a show of their choice from the wide range of plays, musicals and other entertainment on sale at tkts on the day. 

They can opt to see a show on the big day itself or book ahead, subject to availability, with a huge choice on offer, including shows with royal or wedding themes such as Mamma Mia!, Betty Blue Eyes and We Will Rock You (featuring the songs of Queen!). 

Run by the Society of London Theatre (SOLT) on behalf of the theatre industry, tkts’ unique official status guarantees great bargains and a great choice of shows.

All profits fund a range of important activities in the theatre industry including supporting upcoming actors and producers, and audience development initiatives.
