FAQs

Here are some of the questions we get asked the most at Z-arts – if you can’t find the answer to your question on here, then give us a call on 0161 232 6089.

Can I buy a concession ticket?

Concessions are available for students, pensioners, and for those who are not currently in employment – speak to our Box Office team on 0161 232 6089 or in person at Z-arts for more details.

What is an essential companion ticket?

An essential companion ticket is free of charge for someone accompanying a person with a disability to our venue. Give our Box Office a call if you want to check whether you’re eligible for an essential companion ticket.

Does my baby need a ticket?

Possibly! If the show you are coming to see is aimed at babies (like Kaleidoscope or Over the Moon), then you will need a ticket for a baby. If not, then babes-in-arms tickets are usually available for children under 18 months.

Why are some shows more expensive than others?

If the show has a green V in the corner, it’s a visiting production. This means they set their own ticket prices and categories, which are usually different to ours.

If you have any other questions about our ticket pricing and structure, have a look at our Ticket Types page. 

Where can I park?

We don’t have a car park, but there is substantial on-street parking around the venue. Please be aware that parking restrictions vary street to street, so make sure to check when you park your car. Have a look at our Getting There page for more details and alternative ways to travel. 

Can I get something to eat before the show?

This depends what time the show starts. Our cafe is open all day and into the evening but stops serving food at 2pm. There are plenty of places nearby to get some excellent food before you go to see a show – or you can just fill up on delicious cake from the café!

Is your venue suitable for people with disabilities/hearing & visual impairments?

Accessibility is at the heart of what we do at Z-arts. We go to great lengths to make our venue and our shows as accessible as possible, from relaxed performances to our free Z-access family fun days. Have a look at our access page for more information.

Hope this helps!
