Thought that tickets to the biggest theatre show of 2015 had already sold out? Well, they haven’t. Barbican has revealed that there are still one hundred £10 tickets available for each performance of their Benedict Cumberbatch-starring adaptation of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy. But you have to act fast to get one.
The overwhelming majority of £10 tickets (60 per performance) will be distributed by ballot, and you’ve got until 10am next Tuesday to sign up for a chance. If successful you’ll be notified next Friday and have a week to purchase up to two tickets at £10 each.
After that, it’s every man and woman for themselves: there will be the odd return available, and ten tickets per 100 will be given to charities to distribute, but the remaining tickets will be distributed as day-seats, meaning you’ll have to queue up on the morning of the performance, so it’s going to get pretty feral out there on the Barbican forecourt come summer.
