Black Friday bonanza for concert-goers

Town Hall & Symphony Hall slash ticket prices by 25%.

Forget getting a bargain fridge freezers and winter socks this Friday. Town Hall Symphony Hall Birmingham is opening the Black Friday door to the wonders of unmissable live performance tomorrow – with the cost of more than 500 tickets for 16 shows slashed by 25% for a one-day Black Friday special.

The offer from one of the UK’s leading concert destinations comes at a time when a new national survey suggests Brits are getting out more, spending more leisure time on gigs, dinners, watching sport and going to the theatre. In all, live performance spanning classical, rock, pop and comedy emerged as the most common way to have a great night out – appealing to 45% of British adults, rising to 63% among the under 25 age group.

For Christmas gift givers that are stuck for inspired ideas on what to get mum and dad for Christmas, Town Hall Symphony Hall Birmingham presents a once-only opportunity for people to snap up tickets for world class concerts at unbeatable prices – to give family and friends the chance to leave the couch and immerse themselves in live performances. The Black Friday offers range from The St Petersburg Ballet and Vasily Petrenko and The RLPO – to the chance for children to meet the wooley sheep, the hairy dog, the fat red hen and the dainty dog in the stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson’s What the Ladybird Heard. Sought after tickets for the hugely anticipated Call Me God production featuring John Malkovich also feature in Friday’s special offer.

People can also get into the festive spirit this season with discounted tickets for THSH’s Christmas performances, including: Renaissance Christmas with Tallis Scholars on 13th December, The Christmas Ska Party on 14th December – and Carols by Candlelight on Christmas Eve.

Nick Reed, CEO at THSH commented: “At a time when everyone is keeping an eye on the family finances, our Black Friday offer gives people the opportunity to secure tickets to unmissable, world-class performances at a bargain price. At THSH we take great effort to programme a wide range of concerts, recitals and performances that offer something for everyone in a venue that has some of the best acoustics in the western world. Ahead of unveiling our ambitious season for 2017, our Black Friday offer gives music lovers the ideal opportunity to be aspirational this Friday and secure bargain tickets to truly world-class performances.”
