Pay What You Decide

We believe that theatre should be for everyone, and you shouldn't have to break the bank to experience the joy of performance.

‘Pay What You Decide’ places the power in your hands. Instead of a fixed ticket price, you are invited to pay what you feel the ticket is worth. Tickets start from £3 but then the decision is yours. Take a risk and book for something you wouldn’t usually!

Do you live in Prescot? Does your postcode begin with L34 or L35? Then you can unlock additional tickets. We are proud to be a part of the Prescot community and are delighted to offer all Prescot residents exclusive access to additional Pay What You Decide tickets.

There are a limited number of ‘Pay What You Decide’ tickets on performances throughout the venue. These are sold on a first come first served basis. Pay What You Decide tickets are available to everyone. However, there is an additional allocation of Pay What You Decide tickets held for Prescot residents.
