It’s been hard keeping this one under our hats, but we’re very excited to announce that Jason Manford will be back once again to host the Olivier Awards 2020 with Mastercard. But enough from us, you can hear it from the man himself below!

The Olivier Awards 2020 will take place on Sunday 5 April at the Royal Albert Hall. Public tickets go on sale on Friday 24 January exclusively to Mastercard cardholders so keep your eyes peeled on our social media and on priceless.com to grab yours!

To celebrate their first West End birthday, Six has announced today that they’ll be Divorced, Beheaded, Live in London for ages to come! Tickets go on sale today for new dates at the Arts Theatre all the way to 31 January 2021.

The current West End Queens are Jarneia Richard-Noel as Catherine of Aragon, Courtney Bowman as Anne Boleyn, Natalie Paris as Jane Seymour, Alexia McIntosh as Anna of Cleves,  and Danielle Steers as Catherine Parr. And we can’t wait to see Sophie Isaacs – of Heathers fame – step into the spotlight and don Katherine Howard’s crown for the first time next Tuesday.

So whether you’ve not yet made it to this cult pop musical phenomenon, or you’ve got a hankering to see the new cast belt out the songs  you know and love, you can grab your tickets through the link below!

Ahead of opening night next week, we got a sneak peek at the production photos for Uncle Vanya and the set and costume look absolutely incredible. Designed by Rae Smith, the Harold Pinter’s stage has been completely transformed into the crumbling countryside house that becomes the setting for an increasingly complicated and hostile family reunion. We can’t wait to see it in the flesh!

We went to the brand new Les Mis opening night last night (head over to our Instagram to check our our highlights of the night!) and we were blown away. Check out the brand new production shots below!

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. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

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.
