We’re putting art in the heart of Manchester and are committed to widening access to all our own programme. Through affordable ticketing options, we want to remove the barrier between you and great events.

Our affordable ticket offer includes*:

  • £10 tickets; we have a limited number of £10 tickets available across all our own shows and events, for those who need them. 
  • We also offer up to 50% discount across all price bands.
  • To celebrate our opening show, Free Your Mind, we have an allocation of £10 tickets for those on lower incomes.

*subject to availability

Our affordable tickets are intended for:

  • Those on minimum wage or the National Living Wage
  • Students - in higher education
  • Children - check individual events for age ranges
  • Seniors - 65+ on benefits
  • Unwaged - people on benefits
  • Those who can't afford a full price ticket

Please do choose a full price ticket option if you can afford to do so. We operate on a trust basis, and standard tickets contribute to keeping prices low for those who otherwise wouldn't be able to visit.

Affordable ticket options will operate on a trust basis and be self-selecting. We hope those who can, will opt for standard, full price tickets; leaving affordable options available to those who need them.

£10 tickets for Free Your Mind will be released in waves from October 2022 and across 2023. We’ll announce these timings through our social channels and newsletter - you can sign up to that here.

Ticket options will be self-selecting and operate on a trust basis. We hope affordable tickets will be left for those who need them.

Some of our shows have a minimum age range for entry and children must be accompanied by an adult over 18. Tickets for children are discounted by up to 50%, while babies under two go free.

Access Tickets

We offer discounts for disabled people, and can provide a Personal Assistant ticket free of charge if you require one. To find out more visit our Access Tickets page.
