A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of catching ‘The Woman In Black’ show at the Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden. It had been a long while since I last went to a theatre, so I was excited for this one as I do love a good live show. As the show started at a later time of 8pm, Dan and I opted to have some dinner beforehand and as we were in heart of Covent Garden, it wasn’t hard to find somewhere to settle. We chose Wagamama’s as Dan hadn’t tried it before (say whaaaat? I know roght, tell me about it), then we popped in to Paul’s after for a little hot drink and dessert.
The show itself was booked through Official London Theatre, a not-for-profit ticket organisation in London which focuses on encouraging people to experience the west end with their easy to book website. All the shows you can think of is bookable with a few easy clicks which allows you to plan at your own convenience. If you’re not fussy about what you watch and fancy a last-minute theatre experience, you can also try TKTS Booth in the heart of Leicester Square which sells all remaining unsold tickets for shows on the day and are generally heavily discounted too.
Whilst I’m not a fan of anything horror, I actually really enjoyed the show. There were a few jumpy moments and a fair few small screams heard within the theatre, but it was a great performance and I would definitely recommend it. We got to meet the actors after also which was a nice little bonus, it was really interesting to hear all about their experience and how they get in to character for the show etc.
Overall, I had a lovely evening and would 100% recommend catching The Woman In Black in theatre. If horror really isn’t your thing, then I’m sure you’ll find another show you’d like on Official London Theatre, it’s the perfect time now to get something in the diary as an early Christmas present for a loved one maybe? You can thank me later, haa!
