Theatre Tokens partners with Tesco to sell in stores UK-wide

First Published 23 July 2019, Last Updated 26 July 2019

Shoppers will be able to buy a night out at the theatre alongside their groceries after Theatre Tokens unveiled a new retail partnership with supermarket giant Tesco to sell national theatre gift vouchers in their stores.

The gift cards, rolled out across 791 Tesco stores last week, can be redeemed to purchase tickets at any of over 250 theatres around the country, including London’s West End.

Since being established in 1984, Theatre Tokens has helped introduce new audiences to the magic of live theatre, with over 350,000 tickets purchased each year through the scheme. They have no expiry date and are produced by the Society of London Theatre (SOLT), a not-for-profit organisation which invests back into the theatre industry.

The partnership with Tesco furthers the mission of Theatre Tokens to showcase the rich range of entertainment on offer at theatres across the UK, raising the profile of theatre and helping it reach as wide an audience as possible.

Theatre Tokens, the only nationwide theatre gift card and voucher scheme for the UK theatre industry, are currently also available to buy online, at participating theatres and on the high street at selected branches of WHSmith and Waterstones.

To buy and register Theatre Tokens, top up a gift card or eGift, check your balance or find out how and where Theatre Tokens can be used, go to the Theatre Tokens website.

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.
