Open House event with free activities and theatre tickets on sale at 1974 prices.

Our Open House event at The Other Place on Saturday 2 July features special activities for the whole family and  the first opportunity to buy tickets for our Making Mischief festival for just 70p per ticket. This was the price of tickets when the original The Other Place opened in 1974.

These tickets can only be bought in person only at the Box Office at The Other Place on Saturday 2 July, from 12 noon. They will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

A further 300 tickets for 70p each will be available throughout the festival, with a selection on sale every morning  from 10am (between 27 July - 27 August), at The Other Place box office.  70p tickets are limited to two tickets per person.
