Free ticket scheme for older audiences

Since we launched our free ticket schemes in 2008 we are proud to have given over 10,000 people the opportunity to attend opera for free. As in previous years, we are delighted to offer nearly 300 free tickets across our 2017 Season to those over the age of 60. We encourage our audiences to apply as part of an organised community group, such as a day centre, retirement café, older persons’ forum or through a charity such as Age UK or Contact the Elderly.

“Very good especially for people with a restricted pension. It’s very much appreciated!”

“Brilliant shows. Huge appreciation for the scheme it is fantastic for us to be able to go.”
