Tuesday matinee performances are £49.50, with evening performances costing £59.50 per ticket. Tickets for Wednesday cost £69.50, with Thursday performances costing £79.50. From Friday to Saturday, tickets hit their highest price at £89.50.  

Operation Mincemeat Discount Tickets

Discounts aren’t always available for Operation Mincemeat, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for any seasonal offers, such as London Theatre Week or Kids Week. It’s also important to check the view from your seat, especially as the price remains the same whether you’re front row of the stalls or the back row of the Grand Circle. 

We recommend these seats, which are some of the highest-rated seats from theatregoers themselves: Stalls E11, Dress Circle B8 and Upper Circle F12. 

For groups of 10 or more, you can save £10 per ticket. Or, if you’re looking to book a group of 30 or more, you can save up to £20 per ticket depending on the date you visit. You can book group tickets as normal, by following the same booking path. Or, bring 6 or more of your family and friends to enjoy £10 off per ticket - it’s good to note that at least three members of your group need to be family.

When to Book Tickets

There’s typically good availability for Operation Mincemeat around 6 months out, although the cheaper performances sell out earlier. If you want to see the show during its peak times, over the weekend or during school and bank holidays, we recommend booking 4 months or more in advance to secure the best seats in your budget. 

If you want to visit the theatre over a weekend or a bank holiday, you’ll need to plan ahead. These are typically the most expensive dates and they’re also in high demand. Off-peak performances will save you money, so we recommend booking tickets for a performance on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday if you can. 

Matinee performances are only on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with performances starting at 3pm. Monday to Friday evening shows start at 7.30pm, with Saturdays starting at 8pm. A Tuesday matinee showing is £30 cheaper than a Saturday matinee, so if you’re flexible with when you want to see the production, we recommend booking a Tuesday matinee.

Fortune Theatre is located just a 5-minute walk from Covent Garden station, with Temple and Leicester Square around a 15-minute walk away. 

The doors open an hour before the show's start time, meaning you can head in and enjoy a drink from one of the three bars in the theatre. You can bring pre-packaged food and drink in with you, however, no hot food is permitted into the venue. 

Cloakrooms are available for a small fee of £1, however, the facilities are limited. Avoid bringing large items in such as suitcases as storage is not guaranteed.
