ATG Theatrecard

As my friend and I are planning on going to see about 5 shows over the next year, we're planning on getting one of the ATG theatre cards and getting the half price deals they do. I see you can buy them online. If I do buy it online, will they e-mail me my card number so I can use it straight away, or will I have to wait for the physical card to arrive?

    I had thought it woudl be done straightaway once youve paid.

    Does anyone have this card? Is it worth it? Do you have good offers sent?

    Many Thanks

    I got the card yesterday. I did have to ring the help desk as my card number wasn't working. They gave me a temporary number and it works perfectly. Must be one of the most helpful and knowledgable helplines I've spoken too.

    If you go to the theatre regularly it's definitely worth getting one. A lot of shows do buy 1 get 1 free on first nights then usually £5 or £6 off mon- Thurs tickets. Also there's no booking or postage fees when you buy online. My friend and I booked 5 shows and we got bogof on all of them so we saved a lot.

    You also get priority booking. They send you regular updates.

    I've let my membership expire at the moment as there's not much I fancy on in our local theatres current programme season, but I would recommend it generally if you go to the theatre more than once a year.

    If you usually go to the theatre with someone else (or three) you can pretty much recoup the price of the card in one trip with one of the 2-4-1 first night offers. And there are usually reductions on the other nights too.

    Plus, as Kido says, no booking fees, 10% off interval drinks, and you get sent the season progammes earlier than they are released to the general public with a couple of days priority booking.
  • I usually check my local theatre listings for the upcoming year - if there's more than 2 shows I want to see, I get the card for the year. The two-for-one on opening nights is a brilliant deal, I rarely pay more than £20 for stalls tickets to musicals on tour. Already used it for South Pacific, Legally Blonde and Sister Act :T Not having a booking fee is a big plus too!
