Top theatre hospitality picks for winter
Choosing which show you should take clients to can be daunting. But fear not – we’ve picked out some of our favourites of the season

Young Marx, Bridge Theatre

Young Marx Manuel Harlan Bridge Theatre

The first ever show at this new venue is a brilliant dark comedy by Clive Coleman and Richard Bean. The Bridge Theatre is keen to provide VIP packages, but is yet to announce any specific details.

Until 31 December

Ovo, Royal Albert Hall

Ovo Cirque du Soleil Royal Albert Hall

2018 will see Cirque du Soleil bring its immersive show to the UK. We like the sound of the VIP Rouge package, which allows groups to enjoy views over the famous auditorium between the acts.

7 January - 4 March
Hamilton, Victoria Palace Theatre

Hamilton Victoria Palace Theatre

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical is almost here. Delfont Mackintosh packages include champagne receptions, canapés and premium seats from £182.50pp. Be quick! 

From 6 Dec

A Christmas Carol, The Old Vic 

Christmas Carol The Old Vic

We all know the story, but did you know that Rhys Ifans will be playing the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge in this adaptation of the Dickens favourite? Encore Hospitality is providing both VIP and dinner packages from £155pp. 

Until 20 Jan

Matthew Bourne's Cinderella, Sadler's Wells

Matthew Bourne Cinderalla Sadler's Wells

The dance king’s take on this classic love story moves the action to Blitz-era London. Packages for supper at Sadler’s have groups dining on the mezzanine. A drinks-only option can also be arranged. 

Until 28 Jan

Plus: A venue spotlight

Victoria Palace Theatre

Victoria Palace Theatre

‘There isn’t a brick, there isn’t a loo-roll holder, there isn’t a light switch that won’t have been run past him,’ says Nicholas Allott, MD at Cameron Mackintosh. He’s talking, of course, about the unstoppable producer Mackintosh himself, whose new-look Victoria Palace Theatre will reopen with one of the West End’s most anticipated musicals of recent years, Hamilton. Timed to coincide with the surrounding area’s colossal overhaul, the theatre’s multimillion-pound refurb will see an eight-storey fly tower added, 450 new seats in the auditorium and a deeper stage pit, allowing bigger and better musicals to move in. We expect Hamilton will do the new playhouse proud.
