How to get great tickets in London

by Claudia Bombeck
Traveling to London soon? Need help in getting theatre tickets for the West End? Well you’ve come to the right place. Applause Theatre and Entertainment can be your theatre connection across the pond.

You might ask yourself why you would come to a New York ticket agent to obtain tickets for London. Our motto at Applause is “real people that you can trust”.

Let me tell you a little bit of my background. Having spent my formative years going to boarding school in England, I am half English and still carry an English passport. I landed at Applause straight out of college and have been the sales manager of London for over 12 years now. With half my family still living across the pond and having many friends who still live there, I try to get over to England at least once a year. While I am visiting, I never miss a chance to stop in London to see the latest West End smash. Some of my favorites over the last couple of years have been Billy Elliot and We Will Rock You.

Need dinner recommendations in London? Advice on navigating the streets of London? Best sightseeing spots on the Isle of England? Give me a call and I won’t lead you astray.

Through our great relationship with an excellent ticket agent in London, we have access to the best tickets available. Not only do we have several shows in inventory, including the smash hit Billy Elliot and Wicked, getting tickets for Shakespeare in Stratford is only a phone call away.

Currently Hairspray is selling out every performance with a fabulous cast that includes Michael Ball and Mel Smith. The Royal Shakespeare has a sell out season at the New London theatre with King Lear and The Seagull starring Ian Mckellan. The Christmas season sees the return of old favorites, The Snowman at the Peacock, Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker at Sadlers Wells, Cinderella at the Old Vic.

Getting theatre tickets in London cannot be easier. Giving advice on London would be my pleasure. Looking forward to hearing from you.
