Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre has officially launched a brand new scheme, "Eagle Radio’s Big Ticket", offering all 16- to 30-year-olds who live or study within Guildford Borough tickets to Thursday evening theatre performances for just £5.

Head of Marketing & Sales, Dan McWilliam explains: “We recognise that it’s really important to make the theatre accessible to the younger generation in Guildford, and we’re delighted to launch a scheme that we hope will encourage more 16s to 30s to visit us for good-value evening entertainment. With the patronage of Eagle Radio, we’re hoping to welcome many new faces from the Borough to Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre to enjoy our Big Ticket initiative.”

There’s no registration fee, but you do need to fill in a short registration form which you can collect from the Yvonne Arnaud box office or download a copy from the web site.

Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, in partnership with Network Rail, is currently touring a production, Off the Level, across schools in the south to raise awareness of level crossing safety.

Anita Dobson and Greta Scacchi perform in the backstage story of legendary rivals Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in Anton Burge’s play Bette and Joan which begins its national tour at the Yvonne Arnaud from Wednesday 14th to Saturday 24th March.

Neil Simon’s comedy Barefoot in the Park, starring Maureen Lipman (who also directs), Oliver Cotton, Faye Castelow and Dominic Tighe opens on Wednesday 28 March and runs until Saturday 7 April, before embarking on a national tour.
