All aboard Birmingham - train and show tickets for under £20

We’ve partnered with West Midlands Railway to show how easy it is to get from Birmingham to Stratford to see a play. If you buy a train ticket and a Rush ticket the whole experience could come in at under £20.

We’re partnering with West Midlands Railway on our Rush Tickets promotion. Every Friday, for a limited time only, we put on sale discounted Rush Tickets to see shows the following week. The tickets are released at midday, for selected performances in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The Pervaiz family travel from Birmingham Snow Hill to Stratford-upon-Avon. You can also see them in Tartuffe in the Swan Theatre until 23 February 2019.

West Midlands Railway runs frequent train services from Birmingham Snow Hill and Moor Street stations to Stratford-upon-Avon, approximately 10-12 minutes’ walk from our theatres. The last train back to Birmingham leaves at 11.30pm Monday-Saturday.

Rush Tickets start at £10 and are allocated on a first come, first served basis and are only available online. Each person can book a maximum of two Rush tickets each week. Rush tickets may only be available in certain levels of the auditoria and on particular price bands. Terms and conditions apply. Subject to availability. No promotional code needed for this offer.

Francis Thomas, for West Midlands Railway said: “We want to bring more people into the town to enjoy the theatre experience - this partnership has already enabled customers to benefit from Rush tickets, to enjoy great last minute theatre and rail deals."
