A Night Less Ordinary at The Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury


Are you under 26 and love the theatre but feel a bit too skint to attend? The Gulbenkian has partnered up with A Night Less Ordinary to offer free theatre tickets to under 26-year-olds.


The Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury is one of 22 venues in the south east to offer under 26-year-olds the opportunity to experience the magic of theatre as part of Arts Council England's free theatre initiative. So this autumn young people will benefit from free theatre tickets worth up to 18 each for our events where you see the ANLO logo. Each show has a limited allocation of free tickets which will be given away on a first come, first served basis - so apply early to avoid disappointment!


Tickets are being offered on the following shows:


● See Hamlet as youve never seen it before! And for free in Kupenga Kwa Hamlet on Tuesday 26 October at 7.45pm. Using just a few props, two charismatic actors play all the roles in this unique version of Hamlet, telling the story in township style with a simplicity that is filled with imagination.


● The brilliant, startling and inspiring Total Theatre award winners Little Bulb Theatre are back at The Gulbenkian with their new hit Edinburgh Festival award-winning show Operation Greenfield on Thursday 28 October at 7.45pm, which captures the confusing, awkward and beautifully nave time of adolescence.
