2014 Budget to benefit UK theatre


People who have previously enjoyed going to the theatre and were successful in purchasing cheap Wicked tickets are sure to be buoyed by the news that the Budget for 2014, announced by the government earlier this year, features lots of welcome tax breaks for musicals, plays, ballets, dance and operas.



This means that productions will get a tax break of 20%, and touring productions will receive 25%, which will be of particular benefit to regional theatres – and could suggest that shows such as Wicked and similar will get an even longer run on the West End than previously anticipated.

Wicked the musical – which is based on The Wizard of Oz and Gregory Maguire’s critically acclaimed novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West – is currently on in London at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, just a short minute’s walk from London Victoria mainline station and convenient underground stations as well.

If you’re thinking of going to see this brilliant musical, you’ll find it very simple to get to the theatre, as it’s found just between Vauxhall Bridge Road and Wilton Road, with the main entrance and box office to be found on Wilton Road.

If you decide to get to the theatre by tube, you’ll find that the Victoria, Circle and District lines, as well as Victoria Underground Station, are all found right next to the building, while Victoria Coach Station can be found just 300 metres from the Apollo on Buckingham Palace Road.
