    War Horse tickets

    Joey gallops back to London

    The beloved stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s novel War Horse returns to the National Theatre for a strictly limited season. Celebrating its 11th anniversary, the production by Nick Stafford and South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company marks the centenary of Armistice Day.

    A powerful and moving World War One story about a boy and his horse on the front lines has rocketed to stratospheric heights. The Olivier Award-winning show is not just a tale of war, but also of the bond between humans and animals. When Albert’s father sells his horse, Joey, to the military, Albert lies about his age in order to find his beloved friend, embarking on a treacherous journey to bring him home.

    Running for two years at the National Theatre before transferring to the West End for a remarkable seven-year run, War Horse has wowed audiences and critics around the globe.

    A touching, thrilling and emotional story of love, war, and fierce loyalty, if you missed War Horse tickets during its first run, don't make the same mistake again as the show returns to the National Theatre for another spectacular season.

    I recommend to see the show. It's an emotional story of a horse in the first world war. The horses are amazing and at some points it's funny as well. It's like the perfect mixture of drama, humor, history and stage techniques. I'm in love with it. And yes, I cried. Great story, great actors! I especially enjoyed Peter Becker. Well done! I would love to see it again! It was so good.

    Believe the hype. War Horse is a truly excellent production. Returning to the National Theatre to celebrate 100 years since the end of the first world war, it makes a welcome return. The puppeteers are world class and the story is incredibly moving. I was in tears throughout, and this is my 3rd time watching this play. Simply breathtaking

    Been wanting to see this show for years and it did not disappoint. Excellent performances, staging, and the puppetry was out of this world. It only took about 5 seconds before I was convinced those horses were 100% real.

    Please only take 10 year olds or above (or judge on your child's maturity)!!! I was so shocked at how many young kids were in the audience. I had a few that must've been 4 around me and they just couldn't sit through the whole play and were frightened of the loud SFX. Lots of getting up to go to the toilet, chatting and rustling. It made an emotional play feel like a panto.
