Are you called William or Catherine? Do you fancy a free trip to the theatre?

Then head down to the tkts booth on Leicester Square early on the morning of the big day (Friday 29 April): if you’re among the first 10 Williams and Catherines in the queue, you can get one free ticket to the show of your choice!

You can choose a show on the big day itself, or book ahead (subject to availability).

What show would you go for? A wedding theme (Mamma Mia!); a Queen theme (We Will Rock You); or a ROYAL wedding theme (Betty Blue Eyes)?! Or something totally different: check out our Top 10 London Musicals for something to inspire you.

Happy 30th Birthday tkts! Celebrate with Free Theatre Tickets Tomorrow Morning http://blog.visitlondon.com/2010/08/happy-30th-birthday-tkts-celebrate-with-free-theatre-tickets-tomorrow-morning/ http://blog.visitlondon.com/2010/08/happy-30th-birthday-tkts-celebrate-with-free-theatre-tickets-tomorrow-morning/#comments Mon, 09 Aug 2010 16:34:54 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=13079

Way back in 1980, when Nicholas Nickleby and Educating Rita were the hot theatre shows in the West End, the Society of London Theatre (SOLT) set up a half-price ticket booth in Leicester Square. 

Since then, what’s become known as the tkts booth has sold an incredible 10.9 million tickets to more than 1,200 shows. Its friendly staff are responsible for 1 in 39 theatre tickets sold in the West End.

Tomorrow the booth, based in the Clocktower Building on the south side of Leicester Square, celebrates its 30th birthday. tkts will be giving away a free theatre ticket to the first 30 people in the queue tomorrow morning. If you’re not able to get up that early, make sure you grab one of the tkts scratchcards being handed out in Leicester Square tomorrow and Wednesday to win some great theatrical prizes.

Let us know if you’re one of the lucky few in the comments below!
