Today, Tuesday 26 November, we're supporting 'STAR Day'!
STAR – the The Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers - is a membership organisation that ensures ticket agencies sell secure tickets by adhering to their Code of Practice, which requires agencies to treat customers fairly and make all transactions clear and straightforward. Click on the STAR logo on the right hand side column to see our membership verification.
Here at the TKTS booth we recommend that you purchase tickets only from members of STAR - like us, the award-winning OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE team (see details below about our awards voted by you.)
More information about safe ticket buying can be found on the About TKTS tab above.
We brought so much cheer to Leicester Square last year we thought we’d do it again! Our carol singing is back on 20 December from 16:00 with stars of the stage led by the West End Gospel Choir.
This year’s sing-a-long is held in aid of the Sir Simon Milton Foundation, a charity committed to helping young people find employment and caring for elderly Westminster residents.

If you missed this summer’s most critically acclaimed musical, MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG, you can check out the filmed production in cinemas across the UK. Brought to you by CinemaLive and Digital Theatre, catch it for ‘One Night Only’ from 24th October. For a list of venues click here.
Set over three decades in the entertainment business 'Merrily We Roll Along' charts the relationship between three friends Franklin, Mary and Charley. Travelling backwards in time, this powerful and moving story features some of Stephen Sondheim's most beautiful songs including 'Good Thing Going', 'Not a Day Goes By' and 'Old Friends'.
"This production of Merrily We Roll Along is not only the best I've seen, but one of those rare instances where casting, direction and show come together in perfect combination, resulting in the classic ideal of the sum being greater than the parts." Stephen Sondheim
