Another chance to get £10 tickets for Benedict Cumberbatch’s Hamlet

We gave you the heads-up to book tickets for Benedict Cumberbatch’s Hamlet, which opens at the Barbican in August, almost a year ago. But even so, you had to be lightning quick – and just plain lucky – to actually score seats. We diligently logged on in good time, but by the time our place in the Barbican’s website queue came good, all the tickets had gone. It was the quickest selling show in the theatre’s history. But there is good news. The Barbican have reserved 100 tickets at £10 each for each show, and 60 of these will be made available to those who are picked out of a ballot. (The remainder will be sold as day seats, available by queuing at the Barbican Centre on the morning of whatever performance you want to try to see).  To enter the ballot, just fill in your name and email address on their website, and if your name is picked out, you’ll be told on Friday 19th June. The box office for this lot of tickets then opens at 10am on Monday 22nd June till 10am on 29th June, and you’ll be able to book up to two tickets to see this much anticipated show. Good luck!
