Theatre Tokens launches Wrapp app

First Published 20 March 2012, Last Updated 21 March 2012

Our countrywide theatre gift voucher scheme Theatre Tokens has launched an innovative new app making it easy to give the gift of theatre through social media and online.

The new partnership with Swedish social gifting service Wrapp allows friends and family to give Theatre Tokens via smartphones, Facebook and online. They can be redeemed, as all Theatre Tokens can, at the tkts ticket booth in Leicester Square, but using Wrapp Theatre Tokens is as easy as showing your smartphone.

The new Wrapp Theatre Tokens app also makes it even easier for more than one person to contribute to a gift, as many friends can give to one gift card through Facebook.

This social app is the latest innovation from Theatre Tokens, which has been helping people give the gift of theatre since 1984. Last year, the UK scheme, which is run by the Society of London Theatre, enjoyed sales of nearly £10 million. This is extremely good news for the theatre industry, not just because it reflects how popular a trip to the theatre still is even in troubled economic times, but also as all profits generated by Theatre Tokens are reinvested into the theatre industry to help support its future.

Theatre Tokens are among a group of high profile companies and schemes in the UK to join the Wrapp app. Among the others are leading gym Fitness First, Italian restaurant chain Pizza Express and the UK’s largest independent online fashion and beauty retailer ASOS.

Theatre Tokens users who want to take advantage of the new app can download it to their smartphone from the Apple App Store or Android Market, or use the web app at www.wrapp.com

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.

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.
