What are the different discounts?

  • For film screenings, book 5 or more tickets for a group rate of £6.45 per ticket.
  • For events in the theatre, concert hall and studio, where group rate applies, there is a generous discount on your ticket price, plus every 10th ticket is free and booking fees are not charged.
  • Even if there is no group rate applicable, we will still remove the booking fee from your tickets if you book 10 tickets or more.
  • Discounts apply only if the group booking is paid for in one transaction
