Love the theatre and eating out? Looking for a special night out in London? Look no further than buyagift.co.uk.
The buyagift website is very easy to use and purchasing the voucher for this experience took about a minute.
Upon receiving the voucher, redemption was simple. You pick the show and restaurant and book online. I was able to select a meal at either Zizzi or Prezzo for a location and time of my choosing and found open availability at all the locations I was interested in.
We decided to book Zizzi because of its close proximity to the theatre. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and shown to our table. We were given the buyagift menu, which is not as extensive as their regular menu but has a good selection, including 4 starters, 6 mains and 4 puddings to choose from. I was very pleased to learn that the restaurants cater for dietary restrictions and there were also several options of dishes under 600 calories.
A glass of red or white wine each was also included in the offer, which was a bonus. Our starters were tasty and came quickly. Service was attentive and pleasant. If you are a fan of Italian food and pizza’s you will be very pleased because the portion sizes are large without sacrificing on quality or taste. In particular, the desserts were scrumptious!
Buyagift.co.uk also offers a good choice of available shows with this offer including the frightening stage play ‘The Woman in Black’, Stomp or the brilliant Kinky Boots and the critically acclaimed Wicked. All of these shows are exceptional and have been well reviewed. They are mainly available for bookings during the week but check the individual terms.
We decided to see Wicked, which is right next to Victoria station at the Apollo theatre – a beautiful theatre. Our seats were in the circle section and the view was brilliant and unobstructed. To purchase these seats alone would have cost us £80 for the pair!
Wicked is a magical performance and fully deserving of its rave reviews. It had a gripping storyline, which is the lead up to when Dorothy (from the Wizard of Oz) lands in Oz. The story was funny, moving and sad with a positive message. The vocals were powerful and the 2 leads were exceptional. While the performance was 2.5 hours, I found myself engaged and in awe of the production. I highly recommend this!
I had a lovely day thanks to this offer with buyagift and found that it is brilliant value. They offer a best price guarantee and I consistently found this offer to be at least 10% lower than with any of its competitors. Treat yourself today!
