    TICKETS: All Co:LAB shows are Pay What You Decide. 

    Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

    You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience and pay cash on the door.
