Good deals – Traces at the Peacock for £15 and Radamisto at ENO for £10

October 12, 2010

Yesterday’s Metro had two great deals back to back: discounts for Traces, the Canadian circus group (whom I enjoyed last year), and Radamisto, the Handel opera now on at English National Opera.

For Traces, the deal is 50% off the top two ticket prices (normally £38 and £29, so two could go for £15 each) for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday shows through October 21st. Book either by calling 0844 412 4322 and quoting “Celebrate the City” offer or go to the Sadler’s Wells website and use the code pcdcelebrate.

For Radamisto, the discount is good for £10 balcony or £20 upper circle seats (“selected areas,” whatever that means). This appears to be good for all dates (it ends November 4th). To book, either call ENO at0871 472 0800 and quote “Metro Radamisto Offer” or book online at this address (possibly using the same offer code, the ad is not clear).

Ticket deal – £10 off top price tix for War Horse – September 6-17 2010 only

August 21, 2010

It’s been almost a year since the National last had an offer on tickets to the much loved and highly successful War Horse. I still want to see it but I still haven’t, as I’m put off by theater with a £50 price tag; usually I can get at least three shows for that price.

However, it may be time to break down, as there simply aren’t bargains to be had for this show if you’re an adult. It never comes up at TKTS or any of the normal theater discounters, so either I need to settle with a really crappy seat (Circle Side Restricted, £15) or pay retail. And now the National is offering another deal off of top price tickets, top price for £40, which, as it turns out, isn’t quite as good as last year’s deal but only off by £2.50 so who am I to quibble. Anyway, the details are as follows:

£10 off top price tickets (usually £49.50) for Monday to Friday evening performances from 6 – 17 September 2010. Book online and enter promotion code 2997 then select date and tickets, or call 020 7452 3000 and quote ‘Members War Horse Offer’. Excludes Thursday matinees and Saturday matinee and evening performances.

There you are; enjoy.

Entertaining Mr Sloane deals – £10 off or half price?

March 30, 2009

I’m pleased to say that Entertaining Mr. Sloane has been extended until April 11th. Ambassadors reminded me of this with an email exhorting me to save £10 off of top priced tickets, but why do that when I can get them from the TKTS booth for £27.50 rather than £35? Still, £35 is an excellent price to play for this hysterical production, and if you’d like to take advantage of it (and want to see the play on Wednesday evening or Thursday matinee), go to their website and where it says “PROMO CODE” enter “EASTER” (no quotes of course). Or, you know, roll the dice with TKTS – you might get lucky!
