Arcola reserves a limited number of ‘Pay What You Can’ tickets for performances on Tuesday evenings. The average ticket spend is £5, but there are no restrictions either way; you simply pay what you can.
Pay What You Can tickets can only be purchased in person, from 6pm on the night of the performance. They are distributed on a first come, first served basis, and are strictly limited to two per person.
A queue normally starts forming before 6pm. You are most likely to secure Pay What You Can tickets in the first week of productions, before reviews are published.
Very occasionally, for one-off or short-run productions, Pay What You Can tickets may not be available. This will be posted on show pages where appropriate.
Currently, Arcola Outside shows are not operating a Pay What You Can ticket option.
