Do you work or volunteer for a charity or community group?

Does that charity or group support individuals living in Oxfordshire?

Do those individuals face social or economic barriers that prevent them from coming to the theatre?

If the answer to all three is 'yes', then read on...

Every year, Oxford Playhouse pledges to give away up to 2,000 free tickets to local community groups and charities to give people who may find a trip to the theatre more challenging than others the opportunity to come and see our shows.

To facilitate this, we have set up the Oxford Playhouse Community Tickets Membership Scheme. Any charity or community group serving individuals in Oxfordshire who would otherwise struggle to come to our theatre is welcome to join. Members will be able to claim a limited number of free or heavily discounted tickets to selected performances at the Playhouse when they become available. It's free to join and membership lasts for two years before members must rejoin, to ensure that we have the most up to date information about the groups.

How Do I Join?

To join or for further information please email

The group will need to fill out a form which asks for the groups contact details, information about the group's work, if there are any access requirements and what kinds of shows the group is interested in seeing.

Membership Guidelines

  1. All not-for-profit community groups and charities that serve individuals in the Oxfordshire area who do not have the resources to otherwise attend a show are invited to apply.
  2. Tickets are for specific performances only and are offered on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are for the designated performances only and cannot be exchanged. Tickets are limited and subject to availability.
  3. Oxford Playhouse will track ticket usage and groups must use at least 80% of the donated tickets in order to participate in future performances.
  4. Tickets cannot be resold or used as auction items at fundraising events. Reselling tickets will be grounds for disqualification. However, Oxford Playhouse also gives away tickets to be handed out as raffle prizes. For more information about this, please contact
