Working With Schools

Schools tickets

Everyone at the theatre knows that the young people of today will be the audiences of tomorrow, so we want to encourage schools to come and see productions at one of Britain's leading regional theatres. We offer a special ticket price of £10 for pupils under 16, with one free teacher ticket for every ten children. We programme around 20 special 'schools performances' of our annual children's show. We also offer £10 tickets for U26's on all shows.

For information on tickets, please contact the Box Office on 017687 74411 or by email on
