A Busker in STOMP



Grab those 90s baggy jeans from your wardrobe and throw on a vest, add a backwards cap and get a giant silver dustbin and you’re ready to stomp the night away. Brush up on some of your moves here.



Grab any outfit and smear it with dirt, tear it up. Really shred it. Then, grab some dark makeup and ghoul your face. Douse yourself with fake blood and BOOM, you’re a zombie.

Grab a white, short sleeved shirt and some khakis. That’s it! You’re one of Sophie’s three dads! Bring your two mates and you can all go together!

You don’t have to #keepthesecrets on how to get this look. Harry Potter is all grown up in the Parts One and Two of the beloved legacy, now onstage. Grab a nice pair of chinos, a waistcoat and don’t forget the signature glasses and lightning bolt scar.


Veruca Salt

Think Pink. Grab some tights, ballet slippers and a tutu (all pink). Throw in a pink fur coat and some long blonde curls and you’ll have the sweetest costume at the party.

Already a classic, the black tie and short sleeve shirt with black trousers should be really easy. The thing that might be harder is getting your hands on the Book of Mormon to use as the prop. Don’t forget to brush up on your doorbell ringing skills.

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.

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.
