Benedict Cumberbatch’s stint in the West End has received critical acclaim as well as sold out shows and queues 50 long on the pavement each morning.
With people camping out on the pavement daily you could be forgiven for thinking there is a new Apple launch in town. Not quite – these thespians are hoping to get their hands on a precious ticket to see Benedict Cumberbatch in the critically acclaimed ‘Hamlet’ which has completely sold out. With tickets now fetching hundreds online and in ‘discount’ stalls all over central London we have some good news; The Handbook’s Offer section has an exclusive package: tickets for Hamlet (best seats in the house) as well as a pre-show meal in steakhouse favourite Gaucho at a discounted price.
If bloody Shakespeare isn’t really your thing then there are plenty of other offers to choose from; Matilda the Musical, The Lion King, Book of Mormon… The list goes on. If you are wanting something current then we recommend The Winter’s Tale, Kenneth Branagh’s hugely sought-after series of five plays, starring Dame Judi Dench, Rob Brydon, Lily James and Richard Madden. Well worth having a look; Christmas nights out, anyone?
