Launch of Fantastic Fridays London Hotel and Theatre promotion

Friday evening special offers on a range of shows and hotels

April 2010, London: A new promotion has been launched offering special deals on West End hotels and theatres when staying on a Friday evening in London.

The “Fantastic Fridays” promotion from London theatre website westendtheatre.com will run until the end of October 2010 and offers a Top Price Seat to a hit show and a Friday night stay in a central London 4 Star Hotel for only £79* per person.

Shows included in the special theatre and hotel package range from smash-hit musicals such as Wicked, Chicago, Grease, Blood Brothers, Dreamboats and Petticoats and Stomp, to hilarious comedy The 39 Steps and thriller The Woman in Black.

Editor of westendtheatre.com Paul Raven said: “We wanted to create a promotion that would help people from outside of London to come and enjoy a show. By offering a great value package that combines a central London hotel and top price ticket to a show, we’ve hopefully made it easy for people to enjoy a theatre break in the capital”.
