What we're about
For those interested in drama and theatre arts. You could be a newbie, wanting to try things out or a fanatic who goes at least three to four times a week. Welcome!
We go as a group to theatre to most west-end theatres and non west-end theatres including Arcola, Almeida, Hampstead, Kings Head, Young Vic, Old Vic, Donmar Warehouse, The National Theatre etc with lots of socialising pre and post show.
We are a small group who would love to get to know you, the individual, better. We keep our meetup numbers to usually not more than 10 to 12 people. Please join only if you are interested in turning up for a meetup event. There are plenty of online discussion forums and newsletters out there, but we are about making friends whilst enjoying theatre/drama, and in the spirit of Meetup, to meet face to face.
London theatre scene is fabulous- if you want to go out every night and suffer theatre fatigue, this is easily done. If we go to every play out there, there would be no time for work or a balanced life.
Whilst easy to put up every play out there in our calendar (cut and paste from theatre listings!), we would rather not. We take pride in being selective, adding must-sees alongside under-rated or under-exposed productions, prefering quality over quantity. You will not see a menu listing every show in theatre land, but our choices are carefully considered. This is the group for you if you are a discerning theatre goer and want to make the most efficient use of your leisure time...!
We are not a ticket reselling site, but we do aim to get members the best deals on offer including group discounts, priority bookings and low cost tickets. Our members benefit from high value tickets at lower cost, not 'cheap' tickets (these are easy to find). There may be booking fees and paypal fees added to some ticket prices, and any additional fee goes to the running costs including priority memberships, producers/ supporters circle/donations, administration costs, banking and paypal costs. This group does run at a loss, due to the costs above and especially management time costs of the Organiser, but we do it for the love of theatre and the love for theatre going people.
It's free to join this Meetup group but we tend not to retain non-active members. To help with running costs, there is a one off £10 Theatre Pass fee to pay on your first booking to join an event.
