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. Dont miss your chance to see this hit Edinburgh Festival show for free!


● A new set of bohemians take over The Gulbenkian in an electric new English translation of Puccinis La Bohme by OperaUpClose on Saturday 20 October at 7.45pm. Fresh from a sell-out run at the Cock Tavern, London this is your chance to see this tale of love and tragedy, indulgence and excess for free!


● A landmark of 20th century theatre, The Caretaker was first performed at The Arts Theatre, London in 1960. Fifty years on, Pinters compelling study of loneliness and power games still has the capacity to amuse, to shock and to fascinate.

● Tickets are also up for grabs for Theatre Unlimiteds Defying Hitler on Monday 15 November and Not About Heroes on Tuesday 16 November both at 7.45pm.
