Often in London, immersive theatre productions have to adapt their show to a venue. That’ll no longer the case as The Buzz – a brand new, adaptable, permanent immersive arts space – is set open later this year.

Described as a flat-pack eco-theatre, it’ll be a space for creatives to meet, explore and develop ideas, and stage productions. It’s based at the vibrant Mercato Metropolitano in Borough, which offers an array of artisanal cuisines for you to enjoy before or after the show. Cocktails can also be purchased at The Buzz.

And for its grand opening, a production of the brand new immersive show The Time Travellers’ Ball will be staged this November.

The Time Travellers’ Ball is an evening of dance, decadence and drama through the decades. It’s a time hopping love story dedicated to London which spans 30 years.

You’ll start as a flapper in the roaring 1920s before travelling into the fabulous 1950s to be a jive queen and ending in the 1970s for some disco grooving. As you venture through time, you’ll discover the story of young lovers Edward and Norma (assistants to one Charlie Chaplin). This 90-minute immersive experience invites audiences to be part of the party and learn the dances of the decades as cocktails flow and the love story flourishes. All are encouraged to dress glamorously in a decade of your choice.

Co-producer, Emma Brünjes said: “We’re thrilled to welcome you all to The Time Travellers’ Ball, a show we’ve created specifically to open our new venue, The Buzz. Be prepared to laugh, cry and, of course, dance! We can’t wait to see you in your finery, to sup a cocktail or three and – importantly – to escape through time.”

The Buzz and The Time Travellers’ Ball open on Wednesday 28 November.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
