Theatre: Olivier Awards 2022 – Winners!

Here we have the winners of the 2022 Olivier Awards, celebrating the best of West End theatre. Have to admit that considering I had a ticket for Cabaret before Christmas and it was when the performances were being cancelled, makes me even more sad that it has won so many awards.

BFI London Film Festival 2021 – Press Accreditation

That’s right for the second year running I have been given press accreditation for the BFI London Film Festival.

With some still being online and others across the U.K. I am hoping that I can manage to get a decent schedule together and even get down to London for a few films, just need to try and plan out to see what I can get put together.

TodayTix – Theatre Tickets

You may (or may not) remember a blog post I put together back in 2017 about West End and Day Seats (read here) when I went to London last week, eventually and to return to the theatre I had actually wondered if Covid would put a stop to this and box offices not opening early to be able to get cheaper last minute tickets direct from the theatre’s box office.

However, I did not have to worry about that. when TodayTix had a few different deals on what they list as Rush Tickets (hello Broadway words coming into the West End). Which is the same thing as day seats, all you need to do is download the app from the App Store and they go on sale at 10am which was always the time the box office opened for the same reason. These are £25 per ticket on the app and the options to buy are for 1 or 2 seats, because I go alone a majority of the time wanting only one single seat works out very nicely that is for sure. But for that price it wouldn’t really matter if you went with someone and didn’t sit together would it?
