I agree about the pricing though, purely the reason I booked the show as down for a matinee anyway and looking for an evening show and as they were £12 I kept my day cheap and booked them without knowing anything about the show at all, so not really sure what to expect having not read the book or seen the film. I do love the Palace though!

Cheapest tickets are £6.50 from the official site for previews (as they're half price). Don't recommend the balcony at the Palace though!

Since all tickets are half price for previews I think I'll get something in the £20 range instead to sit a few levels lower.

By the way, reason I mentioned it is because it's probably cheaper than lastminute.com. I've found in the past that lastminute.com often sell "cheap" seats that are at least equally cheap when buying straight from the box office (where you usually avoid booking fees!) if you're willing to sit back of the back/up in the gods.

Lastminute won't give seat numbers usually, booking directly heremeans you'll know where you are - and there are still some cheap seats available...

Yeah I don't usually mind the seat and just book cheapest available.

Yeah I agree Canadian Turtle but I'm not in London so when booking in advance can't go to box office, think it depends on show though, £12.50 if you book with Nimax. I'm not sure about this show but because I see quite a few shows which aren't really popular and often go to midweek evenings or matinee I get upgraded so often which is why I book cheapest to start with. When I have a bit more money I would like the best seats but for now I just book cheap and hope for the best lol.

I've managed Chorus Line, Merrily We Roll, Ladykillers, Titanic, Commitments & Scottsboro Boys for a combined price of £85 so pretty happy for six shows and would rather do that than buy a blooming £85 premium seat!


EDIT: actually £84 and that includes all booking fees and a glass of champagne at Ladykillers! And was upgraded at Chorus Line & Merrily!
