School Bookings & Rates

All the practical information you need for bringing a school group

Bringing a School

School groups of 10+ young people qualify for discounted seats on appropriate productions, excluding some Friday and Saturday evenings. Tickets usually cost £8.50 per child; with one free adult ticket for every 10 child tickets purchased. Additional adult tickets will be charged at the group rate, subject to availability.

Bookings may be restricted to certain parts of the auditorium. For most productions, you can reserve tickets in advance with payment not due until 10 weeks before the performance.

Bespoke Tours

We enjoy showing school groups around our venues. We receive lots of requests and try to fulfil as many of them as possible. Tours are free for groups from non-fee-paying schools from Scotland. In some cases, we’re able to tailor our tours to meet themes or topics you’re working with at school, from architecture to finance, history and much more. If you’re wondering about a tour for your group, please contact our team at
