Lucky Dip tickets are a great way to see our shows for just £10. These are guaranteed standing tickets, however, the 'Lucky Dip' element means that at the performance, if a seat has become available at the last minute, you may be lucky enough to be upgraded into a seat - sometimes with the best views in the house!


Your ticket will say “Lucky Dip” on it. Please present your ticket to an usher when you enter the theatre and they will guide you to our Lucky Dip waiting area. Just before the show starts, our ushers will try their hardest to find you a seat, but there is a chance you may still end up standing. 


Lucky Dip tickets are not allocated positions. This means that you will not find out which area you will be watching the show from until just before the start of the performance.

As Lucky Dip tickets may be standing, please do not book if you are unable to stand for the duration of the performance. If you book more than one Lucky Dip ticket, we cannot guarantee your group will be positioned together.

Where you end up is at the discretion of the front-of-house team. Arriving early at the venue does not guarantee you a seat, or guarantee your party will be positioned together.

There are a limited number of Lucky Dip tickets available. If they are available for your performance then they will appear on the ticket selection page when booking.
