War Horse tickets

Wonderful War Horse

A theatrical sensation
The National Theatre production of War Horse has been inspiring London theatre-goers for seven years, and has been seen by more than four million people around the world. The show has been awarded with some of the West End and Broadway’s biggest prizes, and is now playing to sold-out houses in the USA, South Africa, Holland and Berlin, as well as at the New London Theatre in the heart of theatreland. Experience the phenomenon for yourself by booking cheap tickets to see War Horse with us.

Mesmerising puppetry
Following Joey, the war horse of the title, as he is transported from pre-war English farm life to France and the horrors of the battlefield, the show offers a unique, and moving, perspective on the First World War, and was adapted from the novel by former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo by Nick Stafford.
The show is a collaboration with South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who designed incredible full-size puppets from steel, leather and air-craft cables to bring Joey, and the other equine stars of the show, to life. With the mesmerising work of the show’s puppeteers, alongside the efforts of its talented human cast and award-winning design team, you’ll find yourself transported back in time to the front line. Pick up some cheap tickets for a matinee or evening performance of War Horse and prepare to be amazed.

Award-winning hit
On making its debut at the National Theatre in October 2007, the show was an instant hit with both audiences and critics, and it has been garlanded with plenty of prestigious accolades, including several Olivier and Evening Standard Theatre Awards, as well as the 2011 Tony Award for Broadway’s Best Play. The show has even inspired a blockbuster movie from Stephen Spielberg, and continues to play to packed and enrapt audiences long since it transferred to The National Theatre to the New London Theatre on Drury Lane.

Firm favourite
Suitable for ages 10 and up, the show is a captivating spectacle for both young and old, and has been a big hit here in the office, Melanie, one of our copywriters described it as "Fantastic! A real tearjerker". See it all for yourself by booking some cheap tickets for War Horse at the New London Theatre.
