†The Booking Fees minefield 
If you try to book tickets on line today, you're sure of a big surprise. You will find first that seats usually cost considerably more than we charge you. Group discounts can lower the cost of theatre-going considerably, but for the booker wanting a pair of good seats, the price can rocket - there will most likely be additional charges such as Booking Fees, Admin Fees, and a Restoration Levy. That levy (usually £1.00 - £1.50) is to help keep the roof on a theatre, but other fees go to the commercial ticketing agency - it's the price you pay for the job they do.  
††Such agencies usually have no direct connection with the show or theatre you are booking for, but they may have their own allocation of tickets. They go by deceptive names like LoveTheatre, TheatreTicketsDirect, BoxOffice, or Ticketmaster. Some do offer discounts but they may also charge large fees - read the small print carefully and know what actual seats you are purchasing. A friend recently tried to book for the Branagh Theatre Season at a commercial agency and found he was being charged an extra £10 per ticket! Some agencies charge less but others charge more. Particularly beware of agencies like Viagogo who charge huge sums for reselling unwanted tickets for sold out shows. Tickets bought from them could cost you hundreds of pounds. 
††But there is a way around the booking fee maze. Here is a tip that could save you pounds......Continued HERE
