Magic is coming back to the West End – and hardworking NHS staff and their families are getting to experience it for free. This summer at the Palace Theatre – the home of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – the world’s greatest illusionists and mentalists are coming together in Wonderville, a jaw-dropping display of magic, illusion and technological trickery that promises to electrify, surprise and leave theatregoers in awe.
Wonderville will run for 65 performances from 16 July – 30 August, 2021. At selected performances during the run, 1,000 seats will be available for NHS staff and their families to have a well-deserved night out on the town.
As part of an innovative, new partnership, Producers Carter Dixon Productions, McGill Productions and Piers Cottee-Jones Entertainment have gifted the seats free of charge to ticketing social enterprise, Tickets For Good, to say thank you to NHS staff for their hard, and ongoing, work during the pandemic.
Tickets For Good have partnered with NHS England, bringing a new kind of ticketing to the West End by providing free or highly affordable tickets to NHS workers. Tickets for ‘Wonderville’ are now available to NHS staff, who are each eligible for up to four tickets, so they can enjoy a night out with loved ones and their families.
The producers of Wonderville said: “We are only able to reopen theatres at all thanks to the selfless and incredible work from every member of the NHS. This is a tiny way for us to pay our thanks to these heroes of our time.”
Steve Rimmer, CEO at Tickets For Good, said “we are excited to be partnering with ‘Wonderville’; helping to give increased access for people doing good to the UK’s best live events. We’re so proud to be able to say thanks to our NHS workers with an amazing show, while introducing the talent at the heart of our arts industry to new audiences”.
250 tickets per show are available for Wonderville on Sunday 18 July, Thursday 29 July, Wednesday 11 August and the matinee show on Monday 30 August. To book tickets, NHS staff simply need to register with Tickets For Good using their NHS email address in time for the first release of tickets. To sign up, go to http://ticketsforgood.org.
