Trip To Theatre Could Cost You An Extra £15
Friday 15th August 2014
A study has revealed that the average cost of extras at London’s theatres now tops £11, with the most expensive priced at more than £15.
For many, a trip to the theatre isn’t just about the show. It’s a chance to relax and indulge, so wine and ice cream are welcome accompaniments.
A survey has now revealed that these little indulgences, plus a programme, will on average set you back more than £11.
The study, carried out by The Stage magazine, covered fifty-one commercial and not-for-profit theatres in the West End. The headline findings are:
- Commercial theatre average - £12.20
- Not-for-profit theatre average - £11.29
- Most expensive theatre - Victoria Palace (£15.50)
- Least expensive theatre - National Temporary (£8.25)
These results follow the magazine’s annual survey of ticket prices in June, which found the average price for the best seats in West End theatres was £82 and the average price for the cheapest was £20.
