Celebrate young talent in the first-ever digital Mousetrap Awards

Drum roll…It’s time to roll out the (virtual) red carpet as the Mousetrap Awards 2020 are back tomorrow and this time, with it’s first-ever digital YouTube premiere!

The Mousetrap Awards is the only UK theatre awards run and voted for by young people. Anyone aged 15-29 can get involved, and everyone who votes is invited to attend the red carpet ceremony alongside the superstar winners!

The glorious awards are led by the brilliant Youth Forum from start to finish. From creating the categories and selecting the nominees to organising and hosting the ceremony itself, this is a fantastic opportunity for young members of the public to have their say but also a unique opportunity for members of the Youth Forum to get the experience of running – and sometimes even performing in – a prestigious West End event.

The 9th annual Mousetrap Awards saw a record-breaking number of people voted to crown their winners. With unique categories including ‘Saved The Day’ and ‘Bring It Back’ – as well as prestigious prizes for ‘Best Play’ and ‘Best Musical’ – this is a one-of-a-kind ceremony, and it’s so exciting that this year, everyone has a front-row seat!

Subscribe to their YouTube channel to get a head-start and then tune in tomorrow at 8pm to find out which shows and performances were chosen as the 2019 highlights! And if you’d like to find out more, head to The Mousetrap Theatre Project’s website here.

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.
