Full price tickets are £20

Concession tickets are £10

Group tickets - 5-for-4 £80 (or £16 each)

If the cost of a concession ticket is still a barrier to your attendance, please contact us and we can discuss pay-what-you-can, or free entry in return for volunteer duties.

Tickets are available to purchase in advance by card, or on the door using cash or card.

Free BAME tickets

This year, New Diorama have purchased 150 tickets from us to give away to BAMER artists. To apply for one of these, email [email protected] with your full name (the name you'll be picking the ticket up under) and they will do the rest.

Bursary for teens

There is also a bursary for teenagers, following the generous action of participants at D&D 12, and rounded up with money from Improbable. See the main event page for details of how to apply.

Day ticket

We don’t offer a day ticket. In Open Space you decide the best use of your time and so we sell one ticket for the whole event that leaves you free to come and go.


Whilst we welcome members of the press attending the event, Open Space is all about equal participation, so we do not issue free press tickets. It’s not possible to attend as an observer - if you’re in the room, you’re in the event!

Comps and guest lists

We welcome people from across the spectrum of arts and theatre practice and participation, and we don’t see any individual as more or less important than any other.  Everyone has something to contribute and Open Space is all about equal participation for everyone present, so we don’t give away comps and we don’t have a guest list.  

Why we charge entry

D&D events are run as non-profit, and ticket sales cover just part of the total event costs. We do get some Arts Council subsidy but we still need to charge entry at the lowest possible cost to be able to run the events at all. You can find out more about where your money goes here.
