We are so close to Christmas now I can almost smell it. I've been quite organised but I know of friends who still need to buy pressies and are dreading hitting the shops or playing Russian roulette with online delivery services to get gifts in time for Christmas. If you are still looking for the perfect gift for your theatre-obsessed partner, friends or family you can’t do better than Theatre Tokens.
Theatre Tokens gift cards from theatretokens.com can be used in more than 260 venues nationwide, including the best regional theatres and all of London’s famous West End stages. You can choose to get a physical token or an eGift which will avoid having to leave your couch.
With no expiry date, Theatre Tokens for London and the UK are available for highly anticipated productions, as well as all those classic musicals. The current climate might make you berviuse about booking but buying tokens supports our precious theatre industry and gives us something to look forward to.
Aside from the current Festive holidays these tokens are ideal for birthdays, anniversaries, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day. If you are clever you can build in the obligation for the recipient of your gift to take you as their plus one. Or treat the whole family and spent Christmas departing which show you'd all like to see - dance? Opera? Play or musical?
Top tip - most theatres offer free carer seats for those who qualify and some hold relaxed performances which are often welcomed by autistic theatre lovers and people with specific sensory needs. Check venue's websites for specific information about proof of disability required etc.
Currently we are all keen to see Six, a British musical with a very catchy soundtrack, and I would love to see Everybody's Talking About Jamie (again). What would you like to see?
