How do I get a ticket?
Tickets are available through our ticketing partner, Resident Advisor. We have a few “Pay It Forward” tickets available: Buy Tickets
What is a “Pay-It-Forward” ticket?
“Pay-It-Forward” means you buy a ticket for yourself and gift a ticket to someone else. These tickets are distributed to community members that may have experienced a particular hardship, or given to carers so they can look after someone with access needs.
Recommendations of these community members are filtered in via the crews performing, or, if you are a carer, you can apply for one by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are given out at the digression of the BM team, depending on demand.
How are your tickets priced?
We have a sliding scale of tickets – the earlier you book, the cheaper your ticket!
Do you offer a discounted ticket?
There are reduced tickets available for crews to offer out to their community members who need them. We also have a limited allocation of free accessible tickets, offered to those who are financially struggling. Please email us at email@example.com for more information.
Do you support a charity through your ticket sales?
We support our charity partner in various ways via donating a portion of £1 per ticket sale revenue, guestlist donation, merch sales and through our workshop and talk programming.
Who are your charity partners?
We promise to help these charities in several ways, through;
– Fundraising via ticket revenue and merch sales split evenly between the two organisations
– Raising awareness of their services via our platform and through our talk programming
– Working closely with them and their teams to better understand how we can serve our community
– Allowing our community to access more information about their services on the day of the festival. Representatives from both organisations can be found in the Pxssy Palace PRESENTS: THE SANCTUARY on the day from 12pm till 5pm.
