DAY SEAT INFORMATION
for current West End productions.

DAY SEATS are normally available ONLY to personal callers at the box office on the day of performance, from the time the box office opens at 10am.*
They are normally limited to 1 or 2 per person.
The monkey always advises taking both cards and cash in case one is preferred over the other. Check with the box office before travelling if this policy is still in operation.
REMEMBER: SITUATIONS VARY ON A DAY BY DAY BASIS, AND ADVICE GIVEN HERE COULD EASILY CHANGE AT ANY TIME.
Also remember that quite often, box offices will try to assist others in line once "day seats" are sold out, and if there is no official policy anyway, box office staff will also do plenty to sell you a ticket.
Unsold "day seats" sometimes turn up online at the venue's official website, or can be bought by telephone from the official box office too.
For other advice on how to get sold out tickets, click here.

The list is based on information known AND MAY NOT BE APPLICABLE TO ALL PERFORMANCES.
Also included are productions due to begin performances soon, but which may not yet have opened.

For the National Theatre and other venues that present productions in repertoire, please see their individual listings pages / websites.
ALL details are given in good faith, but Theatremonkey.com cannot accept responsibility for any changes or error, nor subsequent losses incurred.
Also, do note that it can't advise in advance about "the right time to get into line," on any specific day, as it can vary so much, so please use other readers' comments below as your guide!
As a rule, the nearer a show gets to its final performance, the earlier you have to arrive for day seats...

*Remember: Box Office opening times may vary - one reader notes that Ambassador Theatre Group venues may not open until 12 noon on public holiday dates. Also, some box offices may not start selling day seats until 30 minutes or so after they open for business. Please be patient, as staff have a lot to do at the beginning of each day.

9.40am another person arrived, but took place in front of the queue. You have to be careful with these, pretended not to know the queue was for the day seats.

9th July 2015 (tube strike day). Got a day seat last minute for matinee today. I asked at box office at 2.15pm. They said Q1 in stalls for £25 but they didn't accept Visa Electron, so they said they would hold the ticket whilst I went to the cash machine. Five minutes later at 2.22pm, I was given an even better seat in stalls, K11. Very central and great view. Normally £67! Cashier said sometimes very good seats can be available at the last minute for £25.
Reader report: 27th August 2015. 9.48am. About 25 or 30 people in queue (including me). Got F3 and F4 grand (upper) circle!! D: Would have cancelled it but I've sorted planned my whole day around it with my friend. Still cheaper than £36 full price and I can't come to a Thursday matinee in term time so... what can you do. I thought there'd be a queue but had no idea it'd be so busy! I feel I've had a run deal compared with the other reports on your site... #summerholidays.

Arrived 9am, about 15 people in front. At least 30 people in the queue at 10am.
When I got to the box office, they offered 2 seats in row Q, to the side. I asked if they had anything better and they said, "they might do later".
I came back about 30minutes later, when all the queue had gone, and I asked what time would it be worth coming back later. He said, just wait a moment. At about 11am he called me forward and offered two seats at the end of row E and row B (front row). I took front row.
When we got there, two seats next to us were empty, so we moved two seats closer to the centre.
I feel bad for the people I'd seen queuing who were in worse seats further back! Maybe at off-peak times it's not worth queuing? NB not holiday or "peak" time.

Prince Of Wales
The Book Of Mormon
 
Stalls row A 21 £20  A 'lucky draw lottery' is held before each performance. At 5pm each evening / Noon for afternoon performances, personal callers at the venue box office can enter their names.
Entries will close at 5.30pm / 12.30pm and a draw will take place at that time. Winners must be present when results are announced and bring valid ID with them. A reader in 2016 says that they accepted card payment as well as cash, but still required name ID. This draw is subject to availability. Current odds: about 5 to 1, assuming 100 single people want 1 ticket each. Be prepared to "ditch" if you REALLY want to see the show...
Reader Report: 14th January 2014: Over 300 waiting for the lottery (crazy!), and only 1 returned ticket.
Reader Report: Saturday in April 2014. Tried my luck 3 times before actually winning it!! Saturday matinee seemed like a good time for this since there were obviously fewer people at the lottery. "
Reader report: 23rd August 2014: Crazy lottery today! When my boyfriend had already given up, they released 10 more tickets! We got two Stalls row L!
Reader report: 26th November 2014: I would estimate around 30-40 people had submitted an entry form. One nice touch from the guys handing out the forms was to look out for people only buying one ticket, pair them up with another 'lottery buddy' and get them both to change their requests to 2 tickets - this doubles your chances and gives you someone to chat to.
Reader report: 4th January 2015.  Have done Mormon lottery 5 times over the holidays and won twice, although I would say I was definitely more lucky than most. Number of people varied, maybe nearly on one of the days, always more than 50, although this was Christmas holidays so naturally a busier time.
Saturday 7th January 2017. about 100 people for the lottery.
Queen's
Les Misérables
 
      No policy, too busy at the moment. Upper Circle J1 and 2 for £20 are decent, or A2 and 28 allow you to see almost two thirds of the show at £10. Read more.
A reader also noted that once all other seats are sold, she got £12.50 standing room at 3pm for a Saturday 7.30pm show, but advises turning up far earlier for that.

Wednesday 15th February 2017. Queued up at 8:50am, four people ahead. Was given M18 and N12 (stalls) for the matinee. When I left at 10:15am it looked like there were about 35 in the queue, but this is a two show day, half term and around Valentine's Day, so may not be indicative of an off-peak day.
Online there are still "premium" double seats available to buy for the same performance but unsurprisingly weren't selling these as day seats.
I paid half in theatre tokens and half in cash.
Morning!
Friday 17th February 2017. Arrived at 8am and there were 4 people already waiting. Everyone after us arrived quite late about 9am. There were about 35 people waiting at 10am when they opened. Guy came out straight away and said they only had single seats. Managed to get 2 in the dress circle. The guy behind us asked for 2 and they said they only had 1 left. So we worked out overall they had 11 tickets today for day seats! A lot of disappointed people!
Monday 20th February 2017. I arrived there at around 9:25am and I was fourth in the queue. I ended up getting two seats towards the back of the stalls - T20 and T21 for £20 each.
Thursday 23rd February 2017. 4 people ahead of me in the queue at 8am.
Tuesday 28th February 2017. Got there at 8am and was 2nd in the queue. The 3rd person arrived at 8:45am, 4th+5th at 9:10am, 6+7th 9:25am, and then no more until 10am. I overheard the box office lady saying there's usually only 10 tickets. I got offered back of stalls or back of dress circle. The seats in stalls were separate but on the same row, and due to the fact today's show was going to have a visual description in the dress circle, I decided to go for stalls, as apparently they drop down a screen with a visual description in the dress circle, and I thought I would find it annoying."
Thursday 2nd March 2017. No day tickets available today.
Tuesday 7th March 2017.
3rd in line just after 9am, got seats!

Reader reports:
Saturday 11th March 2017. Was offered top price tickets for £35 or second for £20 (back of stalls or dress) but only for evening not matinee.
Thursday 16th March 2017. arrived at around 9:05am and was first in the line. No sign of anyone opening the box office at 10.10am, so I went to wait in the "Kinky Boots" line at the Adelphi Theatre instead. Came back at 10.20am  I then went back to Vaudeville and the gentleman said he was running late so I decided to get a day seat for today's matinee.
I'm sitting stalls B17.
