London shows to see with your friends

By John Drake Published 14 February 2018

There’s plenty of buzz about couples around at the moment. But if you’re hanging out with a group of friends any time soon, and the topic of getting London theatre tickets comes up, we’ve the perfect suggestions for you! Take a look at some of London’s finest West End shows to share with your mates.

The Best Man

The Best Man at the Playhouse Theatre

The clue’s in the title! What better way to tell your best buddy that he’s the only friend for you than take him to The Best Man?!

On the other hand, the show is about two presidential candidates in a no-holds-barred tussle to grasp power… but if you have a point to prove about who’s the better friend, then maybe The Best Man is the play for you!

The Book Of Mormon

Mates always have each other’s backs…. even when, as with The Book Of Mormon, it means travelling halfway across the world to Africa to depose an unscrupulous war lord, with nothing but the bible and Joseph Smith’s good word!

Elder Price proves that, in the end, true friendship overcomes evil – in London musicals, at least. You and your mates will love it…. but mostly YOUUUUUU!

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

Friends sometimes get a raw deal this time of year. Who is it that picks you up after a break-up, goes out with you when you’re in need of a boost, and always makes you laugh when times are tough? They deserve some love!

In Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, it’s Jamie’s family and friends who support him through the ups and downs. This show has got to be up their as one of the most uplifting, fulfilling things you can see together in the West End.

Matilda The Musical

So many amazing friendships in Matilda The Musical: Mrs Phelps – The first glimmer of hope in an otherwise evil, book-ripping world. The friendly librarian shows Matilda real warmth and kindness for the first time. We could learn a lot from her!

Bruce Bogtrotter – What a hero! Is there anything more brilliant than watching your friend stuff themselves with their favourite food until they nearly explode?!
Lavender – What a star! How many of your friends would scare your worst enemy out of their skin with a fresh, wriggly newt?
Miss Honey – Ahhh, Miss Honey, sweetness, intelligence, gentleness incarnate… and one HECK of a powerful voice!

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.

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.
