You probably won’t be surprised to hear that after much discussion, we’ve taken the difficult decision to raise our ticket prices. We spoke at the AGM about the rising costs involved in running the theatre, and we need to make sure SLT can continue through these challenging times. So we’ll be introducing new pricing from September.
At the same time we want to make sure our wonderful theatre remains accessible to people who are struggling during this cost of living crisis. So we are introducing £5 Wednesdays to make sure no-one feels they can’t come and watch a show.
New ticket pricing
From our Autumn season – beginning with Woyzeck in September – we will be moving to the new pricing structure. The eagle-eyed amongst you may recognise that we were already using these prices for more expensive productions, usually musicals. We’ll be using these across all productions from September.

We want to make sure no-one is excluded from coming to the theatre because it’s too expensive. So we’re introducing variable pricing for everyone for every Wednesday performance. You can pay whatever you like, with a minimum price of £5 – which is actually cheaper than our current cheapest ticket. (For our Christmas show, which doesn’t run on a Wednesday, we’ll make sure we have variable pricing for at least one performance.)
Of course, we will keep our prices and costs under review, along with seeing how our new £5 Wednesdays work for you. Please do let us know what you think, and you’ll be the first to hear of any more changes.
Raising our prices is not something we ever want to do. But even with these increases, we feel that an evening at SLT is great value for money. Our productions are top notch and give many, much more expensive theatres, a run for their money.
See you at the theatre soon.
