1. How Much are Matilda the Musical Tickets?

The revolting children have been performing to theatregoers in London for over 12 years and they’re not stopping anytime soon! The hugely popular musical has quickly become a fan favourite for children and adults, with many making return visits. Due to the popularity of the production, tickets can become pricey. They start as low as £20 and reach highs of over £120. 

There are a few ways to grab cheaper tickets to Matilda the Musical, including promotions such as London Theatre Week and Kids Week, Royal Shakespeare Company deals for young people, and by booking in advance. The musical isn’t always included in discounts, especially if you’re looking to visit during peak times, but it’s always worth checking! 

Not sure how to find a discount for Matilda the Musical? No worries - we’ve pulled together a comprehensive guide to making the most of your budget and getting affordable tickets below. 

2. When Should I Book Tickets for Matilda the Musical?

The musical typically has good availability a month out, however, it’s good to keep in mind that the cheaper price-point tickets will sell out earlier. As the production is for children aged 6 or over, it makes a great introduction to musical theatre for kids. This being said, the show’s most popular peak periods are weekends, bank holidays and school holidays. If you want to see the musical during one of these times, we recommend booking a few months in advance to avoid disappointment. 

Booking an off-peak performance on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday is the best way to save money on tickets. Mid-week tickets can be up to 28% cheaper than weekend tickets, which is a huge saving if you’re flexible with when you can visit. 

It might not be possible to always find offers for Matilda the Musical, but the production is sometimes included in seasonal promotions, such as London Theatre Weeks, New Year’s Sales and Kids Week. 

3. How Do I Get Last Minute Matilda the Musical Tickets?

Searching for cheap last-minute Matilda the Musical tickets? There’s a range of ways you can do this. We recommend visiting the TKTS booth in Leicester Square or heading directly to the theatre’s box office. Or, if you’re not in London you can check TKTS online listings for same-day ticket discounts. 

TikTok £10 tickets for anyone aged 16-25 are available at the Cambridge Theatre box office. You’ll need to sign up to the Royal Shakespeare Company emails and have proof of age to be able to bag one of these tickets. Tickets are released at 10am every morning and you can find out more information here

The theatre also offers a £25 ticket lottery for the musical, which is typically open for performances two weeks in advance. You can find out more information about the lottery here

Unsold tickets on the day of a performance may be discounted by the box office. At the time of writing, Dress Circle F30 for this evening's performance is £78, whilst the same seat for next week's performance is £99 - this is a saving of over 26%!

It’s best to keep in mind that this isn’t always the case, especially during weekends, bank and school holidays. So, if you’re thinking of visiting during one of these popular times, we do recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment on the day. 

4. Where Should I Sit at Matilda the Musical?

There’s a whole host of moments throughout the show that are breathtaking and unlike anything else in the West End. With that being said, all theatregoers want to be able to see the action wherever they’re sat and we know it’s sometimes hard to find the best ticket in your budget that does just that. The greatest view of the musical is towards the middle of the stalls, however, these can be some of the priciest tickets. We’ve put together a comprehensive guide to finding the best cheap seats for Matilda the Musical, including tips and tricks to get the most value out of your visit. 

5. How To Get Cheap Matilda the Musical Matinee Tickets

Matilda the Musical has three matinees per week on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, all starting at varying times between 2 pm and 3 pm. 

If you can, book tickets to a Wednesday matinee as these can be cheaper than a Saturday or Sunday afternoon show. It’s important to add that a Saturday matinee can be up to 23% more expensive than a Saturday evening show, so we recommend comparing show times as well. At the time of writing, Stalls M21 is £86 on a Wednesday matinee performance, with the same seat only a few days later on a Saturday matinee costing £135. This is a huge saving of £49!

9. About the Matilda the Musical Venue

Matilda the Musical is currently playing at the Cambridge Theatre, which is just a short walk from Covent Garden and Leicester Square tube stations making it pretty accessible from most places in the city. 

Nearby there are a whole host of restaurants and shops, ranging from high-end dining to fast food chains - there’s something for everyone. If you’re hoping to grab a bite in or around Covent Garden or Leicester Square, we recommend booking a table to ensure you have enough time before your performance begins and to avoid disappointment on the day. 

There are three bars on each level of the theatre which serve alcoholic and soft drinks as well as sweet and savoury snacks. Cold snacks and drinks purchased from outside of the theatre can be taken in, as long as they’re in plastic containers. 

Doors open 45 minutes before the performance starts, so we recommend arriving 30 minutes beforehand at a minimum to allow for any possible queues. The musical runs for 2 hours and 35 minutes including an interval. This is good to bear in mind especially when planning your journey home from the theatre and considering any children's sleeping schedules.
