We offer a number of packages and discounts to make booking that bit easier and more affordable.

This is the front row of the theatre, with unreserved seating on low bench seats.
Our ‘on stage’ seats are £12 for BRIEF ENCOUNTER. Most of these seats will be released at 12 noon on the day of the first preview (see above for dates).
A number of banquette seats will be released daily at 12 noon as ‘day seats’ – you can buy these in person, or over the phone but not online.
Please note that due to building opening hours, on 26 December 2023 (Boxing Day) the ‘day seats’ will only be available to buy in person, from 6pm.
Pay What You Can (PWYC)
All performances (excluding previews) have between 10 and 35 PWYC tickets spread across all seating levels.
We think that everyone should be able to discover astonishing stories and share the joy of experiencing live theatre together. Our PAY WHAT YOU CAN tickets are available for all our productions and do exactly what it says on the tin – you pay what you can on the day that you book.
You might be feeling flush and choose to add a little more (thank you!) and by doing that you help us provide free tickets for the schools and community groups we work with in Greater Manchester – people who otherwise wouldn’t experience great theatre. If life is suddenly a bit more expensive (school trips, broken washing machines – the ups and downs of life) then you can pick the price that works best for you.
Theatre can be a brilliant adventure, and we’d love you to join us – no matter what.
Please note: as PWYC tickets are already discounted, they’re excluded from half price previews and any other offers.
Under 30s £7 Tickets
All performances (including previews) have at least 20 Under 30s £7 tickets spread across all seating levels. Please enter your DOB within your account. You may also be asked for ID when entering the Theatre.
Please note: as Under 30s tickets are already discounted, they’re excluded from other offers. There are no Under 30s tickets on Relaxed Performances as these shows are already discounted with PWYC options.
Our Under 30s tickets are intended for groups of young people, who are underrepresented at our theatre and may not be able to afford to attend otherwise.
Please be aware that these seats are located in specific areas of the theatre and cannot be moved.
See all 4 shows in the Spring Summer 2024 Season for as little as £66.
Offer excludes: Banquettes, PWYC tickets and Under 30s tickets
We know that when you’re planning a school trip, you sometimes need a few extra tickets for teachers, chaperones or similar. So all school bookings will be entitled to one free ticket for every 15 you buy.
Schools can take advantage of an allocation of specially discounted £15 tickets (subject to availability). And even after that allocation has run out, you can still take advantage of the 10% off Groups price.
From 2023, we have a new booking system. Please see our Schools page for more information.
Schools offer excludes: Under 30s £7 tickets, PWYC tickets and any other offers.
All groups of 10+ will automatically receive 10% off all tickets (unless you would receive a better discount via another offer like our Multi-Buy offer).
Offer excludes: previews, PWYC tickets and Under 30s tickets.
FOR CHRISTMAS ONLY – make an occasion of it and book 6 or more tickets to see BRIEF ENCOUNTER, and save 10% off the total ticket price.
