Ever thought the cost of Theatre Tickets were too expensive? NT Live offers an affordable alternative to the theatrical experience!

I drove just 2 minutes to get to the show, sat in some great seats and saw a fantastic performance. I do not live in London, I do not know someone “in the biz” or have a spare £148.50 to spend on a ticket.
