Now here’s something you don’t see every day – free nights out, at the best shows around. If you’re under 26 and want to try something different, then you can get free tickets to shows at over 200 theatres across England.
They’re all taking part in Arts Council England’s scheme A Night Less Ordinary which is giving away hundreds of thousands of free tickets to all sorts of theatre events – from comedies to tragedies, musical theatre, dance, modern mime, plays, circus and much more.
Just visit this website, enter your post code into the search box and find a great, free night out at a theatre near you.
Theatre’s up close, exciting and different – and it’s not just us who think so. Actor James Purefoy (Rome, A Knight’s Tale) – who’s currently fighting the forces of evil in cinemas across the country as Puritan hero Solomon Kane – is backing the scheme.
In an exclusive interview for NUS and A Night Less Ordinary, James talks about the dangers of live theatre, his plans for a ‘sexy, violent and terrifying’ Macbeth, and why he thinks a night at the theatre might just change your life.
So what are you waiting for? Make that grant stretch a bit further and have some dramatically different nights out for free. Go here to book your free tickets now!
