For those readers who would like to come down to London for performances but are put off by high accommodation prices, I have just received details of cheap bed and breakfast accommodation just outside Covent Garden. Unfortunately, this is too late for the Bolshoi, but if you're quick you might be able to wangle something in time for New York Ballet Stars!
The accommodation is at the London School of Economics' High Holborn Halls of Residence, a newly built (and very swish-looking) building on High Holborn, just on the northern edge of Covent Garden. Within walking distance of the Peacock Theatre, West End Theatre, and close to buses for Sadler's Wells. Rooms are available from £25 for singles and £44 for twins with shared shower and kitchen until 23rd September. Larger rooms are also available. AND there's an extra discount for readers of In and ARound Covent Garden magazine.
Obviously, this is not a personal recommendation, but worth investigating, I should think.
