Search and display information from UK Theatre Web's extensive database of UK what's on information.
This plugin provides access to UK Theatre Web's unique database of what's on information for the UK. Specialising in live performance (theatre, opera, dance, concerts) and exhibitions. The data includes details of productions, cast and venues and includes a searchable archive going back to the mid-1990s.
Ticket information is provided by the SeatChoice ticket finder service through affiliate links to checked and safe ticket agents and retailers - these affiliate links are explicitly labelled with the Ticket Supplier's details and capabilities. The SeatChoice engine searches all major suppliers and provides both live availability and price searches. Information is provided on offers, tickets, meal deals and theatre breaks. All ticket, offer and break details are provided though affiliate links to appropriate suppliers - it is hoped soon to be able to offer earnings-sharing with users of this widget.
The system operates in English, no translations of the database are available so no translations of the widget have been provided.

The title and content of each instance of the widget can be set in the admin area.
