Liverpool’s Unity Theatre launches £5 ticket scheme for creatives

Anyone working in the creative industries can access Creative Membership for free

Unity has announced a brand new ticket scheme, offering £5 tickets to all artists and creatives of all ages – whether they are professional, training or aspiring. The Creative Membership scheme is vital to the venue’s aim of talent development in Liverpool’s creative community and is free to access for any creative or arts worker – from choreographers to musicians and from digital artists to writers. The scheme is a new way for Unity to continue providing creatives with opportunities to develop their interests, skills, confidence and careers to support and invigorate the artistic landscape long-term.

Gordon Millar, Unity Theatre CEO and Artistic Director, comments:

“Unity is renowned for accessible pricing for all, with tickets being 60% cheaper than the North West average. The Creative Membership scheme takes this one step further as we seek to embrace and nourish our local creative community. Many in the arts cannot afford to attend the very works that can inform and inspire their practice. By providing tickets for a mere fiver we’re ensuring that performances are accessible to people that make it and those that will shape its future”.

All Unity shows and the majority of visiting productions will be included in the scheme, with a number of discounted tickets ring-fenced for each show for members of the scheme.

Just launched, the scheme already has over 200 members from a range of professions from theatre producers to graphic designers and is growing fast. New members can sign up by emailing tickets@unitytheatreliverpool.co.uk or calling the box office on 0151 709 4988. Applicants simply answer a short set of questions to join.
