After closing the curtains to audiences during the pandemic, UK theatres are back with a bang! Join PlansChange, as we share some of the best plays, musicals and theatre shows of 2022. Plus, hotels for theatre breaks in London and across the UK.

Peaky Blinders: The Rise

The final episode of one of the world’s most popular TV shows, Peaky Blinders, aired earlier this year, and although a follow-up film is in the works, there’s no release date yet. But, the good news is that you don’t need to wait to see your favourite fictional family in action again. Book tickets for Peaky Blinders: The Rise at The Camden Garrison and walk right into Tommy Shelby’s world.

As the story unfolds, audiences will experience live sets, character interactions, competitive gameplay and even have a role in determining whether Tommy Shelby and his family succeed in their mission to take London.

If you’re a true Peaky Blinders fan, you won’t want to miss out. The show is at the purpose-built ‘Camden Garrison’ in Camden Market, with numerous hotels close by, including Holiday Inn Camden Lock, Fitzrovia Hotel and London Marriott Hotel Regents Park.

The Crucible

The Crucible is one of the UK theatre shows on many people’s must-see list, and the good news is that it’s showing at The National Theatre on London’s South Bank from 14th September - 5th November 2022.

If you’re not familiar with Arthur Miller’s masterpiece, The Crucible is a dramatised and partially fictionalised story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692 - 1693. It was written with a double meaning, as the United States government was persecuting people accused of being communists at the time.

  • London Marriott Hotel County Hall
  • Bankside Hotel Autograph Collection
  • Hampton by Hilton London Waterloo
