Ticket Recommendations
Deciding which shows to see can be difficult - and expensive. We want you to see great shows without breaking the bank. So we'll try to regularly draw your attention to ticket offers, provided via our ticket supplier Encore, that we think are worth snapping up. Why buy through My Theatre Mates? Encore is one of the UK's leading ticket agents and you can buy your tickets through them - and myriad other outlets - at the same price as you can here. However, if you buy through the Mates, the 10% commission that we earn on the transaction will go towards keeping this free service running. We think that would be a good thing - and we hope you agree!
