Information For Schools

We want to bring the magic of live performance to as many of Rugby’s young people as we can. That’s why a third of our tickets are available for free to local school groups. This has been made possible thanks to the generous support of CEMEX.

If you are a teacher who is interested in bringing a group to one of our events or would like to find out more about the opportunity, please contact Dettie (Theatre Manager) on or by calling 01788 556203. We would love to hear from you.
