Friends Show Discounts

Friends benefit from discounts on a wide variety of shows at Capital Theatres. You can easily see whether a show has a Friends discount on each show page, both on the main page and the discounts tab. If a Friends discount is available for your selected performance it will also automatically apply to your basket on checkout, so you never miss out on your savings!

Please note these discounts are subject to availability.

Friends Priority Booking

Friends also benefit from Priority Booking on select shows!
Each month you'll receive our Friends E-newsletter outlining all upcoming discounts and any new Priority Booking periods available for you. If a show isn't announced in time for a monthly newsletter you'll receive a bespoke email so you don't miss out. We've got you covered.

If a show has priority booking available to Friends all you need to do is Log in to your account, navigate to the show page within the Friends Priority Booking period, and start booking your tickets, simple as that. Our Box Office system will know you're a Friend as soon as you've logged in!
