Prologue tickets at just £5 are available for all Festival 2017 productions. An allocation of Prologue tickets will go on sale in line with general booking for Festival 2017, so you can choose what you want to see and visit the Theatre with friends (T&Cs apply). Prologue seats are located in specific areas of the auditoria but don't worry, the shape of our thrust stages means that there isn't a bad seat in the house! Keep up to date with all Prologue news by following our Twitter, Facebook and blog.

If you book the same number of Prologue tickets for three Festival productions in our Early Bird booking period, we'll give you the same number of tickets free for an extra show*. Why not use your fourth visit to see something you wouldn't ordinarily choose? Or bring a friend who would never normally buy a theatre ticket and treat them for free!

*Offer excludes King Lear.


Prologue members can book up to two tickets (subject to availability) per performance but every person in the group must be within the 16-25 age range. Prologue members must make the booking themselves and provide valid ID for each ticket when collecting from the Box Office, showing that both ticket holders are within the 16-25 age range on the date of the performance. Prologue tickets are non-transferable and cannot be upgraded to full price or other concessionary tickets. For full terms and conditions, click here.


As always we'll also keep an allocation of tickets back to release a month before each production opens so sign up to our mailing list to hear all the latest news and additional release dates. Once you've completed the form you will be able to book online or by phoning the Box Office on 01243 781312.
