More Information on Discounted Tickets

Friends are entitled to discounted tickets for up to two people on selected shows both in the Main House, including our Film Season, and in the Mill Studio.

Discounts on standard tickets are as below: 

          - Main Auditorium - £2 off per ticket (Mon - Thu evening) or £5 off per ticket (Sat matinee). 

          - Mill Studio - £2 off per ticket (evening performances only).

          - Film Season - £1.50 off per ticket. 

Multi-Buy Tickets

Friends can save even more with our Multi-Buy tickets, saving an additional 5% on tickets when purchasing 2 or more shows at the same time!

Book 2+ shows at the same time: save 10% plus an additional 5%
Book 4+ shows at the same time: save 25% plus an additional 5%

This can also be combined with our Advanced Tickets (save 50%), meaning you could save over 60% on your tickets if you booked 4+ shows at the same time at the Advance rate as a Friend! For more information on our Multi-Buy & Advance Tickets, visit our Booking Information page.

Please see individual show pages or the brochure to check if discounts are available. Discounts cannot be added retrospectively to tickets already purchased at full price.
