Save A Seat is an initiative we are working with the producers of Parallel Lives to ensure people in the community are able to engage with the show. This works by enabling people to purchase a ticket for the performance of Parallel Lives on behalf of somebody who may not have had a chance to experience live theatre.
At this moment in time particularly, we feel social conscious conversations are happening more than ever, and theatre is an incredible way to discuss those conversations.
The aim with this initiative is to make theatre more accessible. So the seats will be targeted at underrepresented and low income communities. We believe that the theatre can make a huge difference to people’s lives, and should be accessible.
We are very much hoping you can come to see the show, but also ask that, if you’re in a position to, you purchase a Save A Seat ticket for a community member.
Please note: you can only buy Save A Seat tickets by calling up our Box Office on 01253 794221 (10am – 4pm daily).
