Thameslink and Great Northern passengers can get a discount on theatre tickets

Local arts will be given a well-deserved boost as the new partnership gives limited-edition discounts to passengers travelling to the theatre by train this autumn. The entertainment-based initiative will see rail operators Thameslink and Great Northern working with top theatres on their network and will give customers the opportunity to claim exclusive discounts on spectacular shows.

To celebrate theatres getting back to the business of entertaining following lengthy closures because of covid measures, Thameslink and Great Northern saw a great opportunity to get behind the arts community and putting smaller and independent venues in the spotlight.

The rail operators will be working with the following theatres:

  • Theatre Royal Brighton
  • Chichester Festival Theatre
  • Fairfield Halls in Croydon
  • ADC Theatre in Cambridge
  • Kings Theatre Portsmouth
  • OVO at The Maltings Theatre in St Albans

The #entertrainment campaign offers limited-edition discounts for top shows when theatre goers travel by train with Thameslink and Great Northern, as well as sister brand Southern and will run throughout October and until December.

For further information and to book tickets please visit the following websites: Thameslink: https://www.thameslinkrailway.com/destinations-and-offers/days-out-ideas/theatres 

Great Northern: https://www.greatnorthernrail.com/destinations-and-offers/days-out-ideas/theatres  Each theatre has its own terms and conditions which can be found on their own websites which can be found through the links above. A valid rail ticket needs to be shown upon arrival at the theatre.

Jenny Saunders, Customer Services Director for Thameslink and Great Northern, said: "It's great to be partnering with The Maltings Theatre and ADC Cambridge to encourage our customers to hop on a train and see a show. The pandemic has been tough on all industries, but the arts has especially suffered so we're really pleased we can team up for this fantastic partnership that celebrates the return of live entertainment!" Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge added: "Here in Cambridge, we have great theatres right on our doorstep.

The last year has been difficult for many in the performing arts community, but I have no doubt that the thrill and excitement of live performance will draw people back again. Theatre is a vital part of what makes Cambridge an attractive vibrant city, which is why continued support is essential." Adam Nichols, Artistic Director of OVO at The Maltings Theatre, said: "We're really excited to be part of this campaign, which is going to be a wonderful way to let people know what's on at their local theatres and how easy it is to buy tickets - with a discount!

We've got some fantastic productions lined up for our autumn season and we're very much looking forward to welcoming audiences to The Maltings Theatre which is situated in the heart of St Albans." Jamie Rycroft, Theatre Manager at the ADC Theatre in Cambridge, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Thameslink and Great Northern to offer some fantastic ticket discounts for our jam-packed Autumn season at the ADC Theatre and Corpus Playroom. Highlights include a week of Caryl Churchill plays presented in October across both of our venues in the heart of Cambridge, as well as a unique devised production hitting the ADC stage in November: The Old Bailey Alumni Network.

Why not accompany your visit with a trip to the ADC Bar which serves a delicious selection of beers, wines, spirits and snacks before, during and after the show."

Packet of crisps from 1970s washes up on beach

A packet of crisps dating back nearly 50 years was found washed up on a beach - advertising the UK's first budget airline. The packet of salt and vinegar crisps was found by Trish Brewster, 55, who knew it was old as soon as she spotted the name of the airline on the beach in Glenelg, near Skye, Highlands. The Golden Wonder crisps are believed to date from around 1974 or 1975, due to the closing date of a competition run in conjunction with Freddie Laker Airways.

The no-frills airline was launched in 1966 and went bust in 1982. The packaging advertised getting a plastic aeroplane for 90p if four coupons were collected from the back of crisp packets. Trish said: "There was a competition on it which said it ended in March 1975.

"But it could be from 1974 - it is 46 years old at least.

"Freddie Laker was just like RyanAir so when I saw that I knew it was old. "We go with the dog for a walk and pick up rubbish, so much is washed up. "We cleaned the beach and I found it washed up there."

Wildlife lover Trish said she had no idea of the scale of marine plastic pollution until she moved to the coastal spot from York, with her partner.
