Group and School Bookings

A group booking saves you money

Arranging a group booking is easy:

  • you only need ten in your party to be eligible for group rates (where  applicable).
  • you don't need definite numbers when making your initial reservation.
  • you will be asked for a 10% deposit.
  • you will be given a date to confirm numbers and make your final payment.
  • one ticket in every ten will be free on most performances.
