Ticketmaster recommends: last minute Mother’s Day ideas

Last minute Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to originate from the corner shop, so we’ve rounded up our top staff picks to help you treat your mum on Sunday 15 March.


“For my mum, there’s no better way to say You Love Me on Mother’s Day than taking her to a Simply Red concert; a real trip down memory lane together!”
Talya Zwiers, Content Editor

Beautiful carole king musical for mother's day

“It’d have to be Beautiful; it has great music and so many classic songs. I took my mum to see it before and she cried. She said it brought that time back to her so vividly, and made her feel very nostalgic. She immediately booked tickets to go again and take my stepdad.”
Oona Howard, Business Analyst

“I’d also say Beautiful the Musical as the perfect Mother’s Day night out. Either she grew up listening to Carole King, or you did because of her. There’s no better mix of incredible live music (you’ll know every word) and inspirational (true) storyline. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you won’t get Natural Woman out of your head for days.”
Abi Tyler, Content Editor

Madam Butterfly

“My mum, being French and far more sophisticated than I, would probably like tickets to Madam Butterfly at the Royal Albert Hall. Not rock ‘n’ roll in the traditional sense, but pretty incredible.”
Camillie Ainsworth, Social Media and Campaign Executive

Blog Editor’s picks…

John Bishop

“If, like me, you don’t live in the same city as your mum, picking up a pair of tickets for her an a guest is a great way to remind her she isn’t far from your mind. I’ll be surprising my mum with a pair of tickets to see John Bishop live in Brighton (unless she reads this, oops).”

Greenwich Music Time 2015

“With some time to plan the finer details before summer, I know my mum would love to soak up the festival atmosphere at Greenwich Music Time. Gipsy Kings, we’re coming for you.”
