From today, £1 tickets will be available for every show at Old Fire Station, Oxford.

We already have our three-tier ticket system (standard, pay more and pay less), in which we allow anyone to select the pay less option rather than giving criteria for cheaper concession tickets. Inspired by projects like the Ticket Bank in London, we’ve decided to try adding a fourth tier.

For the next six months, each show will have three £1 tickets available for anyone to book if they can’t afford the pay less price. We won’t ask anyone to prove their financial circumstances. As with our free pay-it-forward drinks in the Café: if you use it, we assume it’s because you need it.

If you know someone who wants to come to the theatre but can’t afford to, please let them know about our new scheme. And if you’d like to donate so that we can keep doing things like this, click here to help.
