There are many advantages of a trip to the theatre, not least that it has a positive impact on mental health. In a survey carried out by theatre experts, 93% of respondents said that theatre benefited their health and well-being [1]. In addition to that, theatre opens your mind, sparks your imagination and helps you to switch off from the real world for a while, so there are many reasons to book a ticket right now.
