Eden Court are offering a ‘Pay What You Can’ deal
Out of This World has been receiving rave reviews and Eden Court would like to enable as many people as possible to experience this world-class theatre show. Eden Court CEO Colin Marr says;
‘The show isn’t a straightforward drama or play, it’s part drama, part visual spectacular, part physical theatre and being able to bring something so different here to Eden Court is really exciting. We don’t have access to enough of this type of work and we simply want as many people as possible to experience it. Above all though, what we’re really excited about is appealing to people who’ve never been to the theatre before so that they can see first- hand how incredible and diverse it can be. If Out of This World is the first thing you ever see in a theatre then we are supremely confident a lifelong love of live performance will follow!’
How does Pay What You Can work – Simply book your tickets as normal through the booking link below or by calling Box Office on 01463 234 234. Then after the show go to Box Office and pay what you can – that’s it! Performances are on TUESDAY 16TH AND WEDNESDAY 17TH MAY AT 8PM.
