1. How Much are Mamma Mia Tickets?

The West End’s answer to a Greek island escape is Mamma Mia packed with hit songs inspired by the Grammy Award-nominated band, ABBA. The musical has proved popular with musical and ABBA fans since it opened in 1999 and the love for the show hasn’t slowed down since! Due to the popularity of the show, tickets start as low as £17.50 and can reach highs of over £195.

There’s a handful of ways to nab cheap tickets to Mamma Mia, including promotions such as London Theatre Week and New Year’s Sales, as well as the Mamma Mia lottery and Day Seats. The musical isn’t always included in discounts, especially during its peak times such as bank holidays and weekends, but it’s always worth a check!

If you’re not sure how to find discounted Mamma Mia tickets, don’t worry - we have you covered! We’ve pulled together an in-detail guide to finding the best seats within your budget below. 

2. When Should I Book Tickets for Mamma Mia?

The musical usually has good availability around a month out, however, it’s good to keep in mind that the cheaper-priced tickets will sell out earlier. The production is popular with many people who come to visit London, so ticket prices can get a little steep, especially during bank holidays and weekends. If you’re hoping to see the production during one of its peaks, we recommend booking a few months in advance to avoid any disappointment. 

Booking an off-peak performance on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday can save you money on tickets. Mid-week tickets can be up to 35% cheaper than weekend tickets, which is a massive saving if you can be flexible with when you visit. 

It’s not always possible to find discounted Mamma Mia tickets, however, the musical is sometimes included in seasonal promotions, such as London Theatre Week and New Year’s Sales, so we recommend keeping your eyes out for any of these discounts throughout the year.  

3. How Do I Get Last Minute Mamma Mia Tickets?

Are you looking for last-minute Mamma Mia tickets that won’t break the bank? There’s a range of ways you can do this. If you’re in London, our top recommendation is to visit the TKTS booth in Leicester Square or head directly to the theatre's box office. Or, if you’re not in London you can always check the TKTS online listings for same-day ticket discounts. 

The theatre offers a limited number of £25 tickets per performance which are located in the front row of Stalls or Dress Circle and are available through the Mamma Mia lottery. You’ll need to enter online, direct through the theatre and you can enter for dates the following week. These tickets are available on a first-come-first-serve basis, so be sure to enter and keep an eye on your inbox! 

Unsold tickets on the day of a performance could be discounted by the box office. At the time of writing Stalls S3 for tonight's performance are priced at £70, with the same seats for next week's performance priced at £85 - that’s a saving of £15 per ticket! 

Tickets to Mamma Mia! at the Novello Theatre in London on Tuesday 9th April at 7:30pm. Stalls S3 price £70

Tickets to Mamma Mia! at the Novello Theatre in London on Tuesday 16th April at 7:30pm. Stalls S3 price £85

Bear in mind that this isn’t always the case, especially for the cheaper-priced tickets. We recommend booking ahead of time to avoid disappointment on the day, especially if you want to visit during a weekend or bank holiday. It’s best to research ticket prices beforehand, to ensure you’re getting the most for your money. 

4. Where Should I Sit at Mamma Mia?

Knowing where to sit can be one of the hardest things when it comes to booking tickets to the theatre. Mamma Mia! is packed full of dancing, singing and hilarious moments that you don’t want to miss, so not to worry, we’ve pulled together a guide to the top 5 best seats under £60 at the Novello Theatre. All of these seat views have been left by real people and are rated 4 stars or above on SeatPlan.

5. How To Get Cheap Mamma Mia Matinee Tickets

The musical has two matinees per week on Thursdays and Saturdays, with both afternoon performances starting at 3pm. 

We recommend booking tickets to a Thursday matinee if you’re flexible with when you can visit, as these tickets are typically cheaper than a Saturday afternoon performance. At the time of writing, a Thursday matinee in May for Stalls N19 is £127.75 with the same seats a few days later at the Saturday matinee costing 19% more! 

Tickets to Mamma Mia! at the Novello Theatre in London on Thursday 9th May at 3pm. Stalls SN19 price £127.75

Tickets to Mamma Mia! at the Novello Theatre in London on Saturday11th May at 3pm. Stalls N19 price £152.75

This may not always be the case, especially around the times of bank holidays and sometimes during the kid’s school holidays, so it’s good to shop around before purchasing tickets.

9. About the Mamma Mia Venue

Mamma Mia is currently playing at the Novello Theatre, which is only a short walk away from Covent Garden and Leicester Square tube stations, making it accessible from most areas in London. 

There’s a range of restaurants nearby, from fast-food chains to high-end dining, there’s something for everyone. If you want a sit-down meal before or after the performance, we recommend booking a table as most restaurants in this area can get full pretty quickly. 

The theatre is home to four bars, each serving alcoholic and soft drinks as well as sweet and savoury snacks. Food or drink purchased elsewhere is not permitted into the theatre, so we recommend giving yourself enough time to stop at one of the in house bars for a drink and some snacks. 

Doors open up to 45 minutes before the performance starts, so we recommend arriving as soon as you can to allow for any queues. The musical is 2 hours and 35 minutes long with an interval of 15 minutes. It’s good to bear this in mind, especially when arranging your journey home.
