How the scheme works. 

  • For each qualifying production there is an alloted amount of free tickets for U26 Supporters. 
  • A handful of productions don't qualify and - when this is the case - we will state it on the relevant webpage. 
  • Free tickets will only be released 2 weeks before the first performance date to ensure all U26 Supporters have the chance to obtain a free ticket. 
  • Your free ticket can be claimed online or via the box office 
  • Once the free ticket allocation has been exhausted there will be the option to purchase a discounted student ticket.

If you have a free U26 ticket and you can no longer attend the production you must let us know in advance.  
Failure to use / collect your free ticket could restrict you from qualifying for future free U26 tickets. 


  • Your membership will lapse in June each year.
  • Free tickets are not available on external events i.e. student events, hires, community events
