Are you panicking about those last few gifts you’ve yet to get?? Christmas has come round so quickly this year, and we can’t quite believe it’s upon us either, but don’t fear, if you’ve got people still not crossed off your list, here’s some stagey inspiration for last-minute Christmas gifts.
Of course, it’s an oldie but a goodie. The promise of a theatre trip is always a great present, and even better if you but a pair of tickets for you and someone, you’re buying a little present for yourself too! Giving experiences is always a great gift, and you can have fun picking the show you think your loved one would enjoy best. Of course, don’t forget to check out our New Year Sale for tickets from just £10 to over 60 shows around the West End.
…but of course, you don’t always know what show to choose. And maybe you don’t want to ruin the surprise by having to scope out (unsubtley) a date when someone is free! Or perhaps your best friend lives at the other end of the country to you? The solution to all of the above is, of course, Theatre Tokens, which can be used at 260 venues nationwide, including the best regional theatres and all of London’s famous West End stages. They’ve also got no expiry date, so there’s no rush to use them – you can wait until that perfect show comes along or until your diaries finally align! And you’ll get your e-gift through almost immediately, making it that perfect last-minute gift.
Performance By Rankin
The Performance By Rankin exhibition has now been extended until March, so you’ve got even more time to pop down to Fujifilm House Of Photogrpahy in Covent Garden and see the beautiful portraits of West End cast, creatives and backstage workers. But did you know there’s an accompanying book? Full of all the incredible photos by renowned portrait photographer Rankin, the book also includes quotes and testimonies from the subjects about the difficulties of the last 18 months in the theatre industry and what it feels like to be #BackOnStage. You can buy a copy of this beautiful limited edition book at the Fujifilm House Of Photography or in good bookshops!
