Tkts to sell advance tickets in Leicester Square

Published 11 December 2008

The world-famous tkts ticket booth in Leicester Square – the original and, still, the only official half-price ticket booth in London – has announced a significant new service for customers. In addition to on-the-day half-price theatre tickets sales, the booth will now also sell advance tickets for a range of events.

Customers can now book in advance at tkts for theatre, pop, rock and classical concerts and major sporting events, as well as many London-based events, exhibitions and attractions.

Paul James, Commercial Manager of the Society of London Theatre, which runs tkts, said: “I think our key customers are always going to be savvy theatregoers heading for the safest, friendliest and most knowledgeable place to get their bargain on-the-day theatre tickets – but I’m sure we’ll also be getting music and sports fans taking advantage of a convenient one-stop ticket shop in central London. Plus we can now help theatregoers plan their whole day out in London with tickets to tourist attractions. For instance, I hear ice-skating is popular at the moment!”

tkts was founded in 1980, when it was known as the Half Price Ticket Booth. It was rebranded as tkts in 2001 to distinguish it from the many unofficial ticket kiosks which had sprung up in the area. The tkts booth, located in the Clocktower Building on the south side of Leicester Square, is a popular local landmark and draws its customers from all over the world. A second tkts outlet, which also now sells both on-the-day discount and advance tickets, opened at the Brent Cross Shopping Centre in North West London earlier this year.

Advance ticketing at tkts is presented via a partnership with leading ticketing company Ticketmaster.

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.
