Get the most from your day at the Plays

With so much happening across the City, here are some ideas for making the most of your day at the Plays

Our Souvenir Programme
Programmes are on sale at each playing station and cost just £3.
The programme is not only a great momento of the day, but your essential guide to what’s happening where. There’s a map showing routes and locations, start times for the plays at each location, details of the casts and their plays, plus informative articles by those involved in bringing the plays to the city streets.

And your programme is also the key to some great offers from our hospitality partners across the City.
