Huge demand expected as Lion King tickets go on sale in Edinburgh
Date Posted: 30/01/13
Theatre bosses are expecting huge demand for tickets for Lion King the Musical ahead of the show's run in Edinburgh.
After several years of huge success in the West End, the hit show is to go on a tour around the UK, with the Edinburgh Playhouse hosting the production from October 12th until January 18th.
And with the musical likely to be a major draw for both locals and those on weekend breaks in the city, demand for tickets, which go on sale today (January 30th), is expected to be massive.
To cope with the demand the number of sales positions at the Playhouse has been doubled from four to eight, reports the Scotsman.
Edinburgh is also expected to benefit from an influx of visitors coming to the city to see the award-winning show.
"The Lion King's visit for such a long run is great news for Edinburgh, especially as it is its only Scottish destination," David Birrell, chief executive of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, told the newspaper.
"The celebrated show will attract a lot of interest and be a fabulous tourism boost."
