The only non-family duo to have topped the album charts three times, Michael and Alfie prove that friendship and togetherness really is what everyone needs, this year more than ever!

Two of the greatest voices in the world and now the most successful UK double act, their album ‘Together At Christmas’ is packed full of holiday cheer – a heart-warming antidote to a year of isolation and social distancing. For Michael and Alfie, their message this festive season is to be together, however you can.

Michael says, “This is the greatest early Christmas present we could’ve wished for.  Thank you so much to all our fans for buying the album, it really means the world to us, especially after the year we’ve all had. We look forward to us all being together again soon.”

Alfie says, “Absolutely thrilled to be number 1 with our Christmas album! A huge thank you to all our amazing fans for their continuous support. Through what has been a crazy year this certainly proves how loyalty and sticking together no matter what challenges we all face pays off. It’s amazing to be able to celebrate this achievement, we are both so grateful. Thank you everyone.”

Laura Monks, Co-Managing Director at Decca Records, says, “What a hat trick! To hit the top of the charts this many times is no easy feat. Decca are so proud to work with Michael & Alfie – bringing the spirit of Christmas to such a hard year!”

This album follows the phenomenal success of the duo’s previous three duet albums, their debut ‘Together’, which became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and The Rolling Stones to the Christmas No.1 spot, ‘Together Again’ which brought the pair yet another No.1 album in 2017, and ‘Back Together’ which landed them the No.2 spot in the Official Albums Chart. As a duo, they have now sold just over 1.3 million albums in the UK, received two Classic Brit Awards, sold out two headline arena tours and now gain their third No.1 album, beating the Grammy award winning K Pop Band BTS  with 2020’s most poignantly titled album ‘Together at Christmas’.

Michael and Alfie are set to return to Les Misérables: The Staged Concert in London’s West End for a very special Christmas run. The show is on for eight weeks from 5th December at the Sondheim Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue. They also embark on a UK Arena tour in 2021, including a date at London’s O2 Arena on 19th December 2021.

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.
