Sign up to Prologue for free today to unlock £5 theatre tickets and exclusive events

Get your hands on great seats for all Festival 2018 productions for just £5 with our FREE membership scheme. Register online with a valid date of birth, and just remember to bring your ID when you collect your tickets on the day!


Members can access £5 tickets for all Festival 2018 shows as soon as they go on sale to the general public on Saturday 3 March. Register by Friday 2 March, log in on Saturday morning and simply look for the stars on the seating plan. Members can book up to two £5 tickets for any performance, so if you’re planning to come with a group make sure your mates are all registered too!



If you book the same number of Prologue tickets for three or more Festival productions within the first month of booking, we’ll give you an extra show for free.* Why not use your fourth visit to see something you wouldn’t ordinarily choose? Or bring a friend who would never normally come to the theatre and treat them for free!

*All tickets must be booked in one transaction


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.


Prologue members also have access to exclusive events. More will be added throughout the season so keep an eye on the Prologue events page and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. We also want to hear from YOU about the sort of events you'd like to take part in, so share your ideas and thoughts on the season using #PrologueIdeas or #Festival2018.


As well as having access to cheaper theatre tickets and exclusive events, members also receive a 10% discount off food and drink in The Café, Foyle Terrace and Minerva Bar & Grill. Make the most of our free Wi-Fi and the fantastic coffee in the The Café, or come along for the atmosphere and a bite in our newly refurbished Minerva Bar & Grill. See the FAQs for full terms and conditions.

To access this discount collect a Prologue membership card from the Box Office on your next visit to the Theatre. Show them your ID and they will verify your membership, giving you unlimited access to Prologue tickets, events and discounts up to your 26th birthday.
