How to buy tickets

Advance tickets

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking ‘Book Now’ on the relevant event.

Ticket prices include the booking fee but tickets are subject to a transaction fee of £1 per order so it’s best to buy all of your tickets at the same time to keep charges down.

Please be aware that advance sales for all events close at midnight, the night before the event takes place.

Tickets for all mac birmingham and Electric Cinema events can also be purchased in advance from their respective box offices. Events at the Studio Theatre and REP Door can also be purchased from the Box.

Ticket prices remain the same for disabled guests, but each disabled guest can bring one carer/signer with them free of charge.


On the Door

Tickets are available to buy on the door at individual venues. Please be aware that all venues accept cash sales only with the exception of The Electric Cinema, mac birmingham and the Library of Birmingham.

Door sales will open 30 minutes before each event. Please bear in mind that capacity is quite limited at many venues. To guarantee entry we recommend booking in advance.

Special screening package

Maximise your Flatpack experience by buying 4 or more standard priced (£7.50) screening tickets and get 20% off. The offer can only be used to purchase one full adult ticket for four or more separate screenings. This offer is only available online.

General Information

We regret that latecomers will not be admitted once the event has begun.

All tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

Free events cannot be booked in advance.

Concessionary rate tickets are available for students with a valid NUS or student card, registered unemployed with a valid DSS form, under 16s and over 60s with proof of age. Advance tickets and walk up purchases must be validated on the door with the correct ID.

Most of our venues are wheelchair accessible. In the few instances where they are not, we have included this information on the venue page. For any other enquiries concerning accessibility, please contact the venue.

Wheelchair spaces at some venues are limited. If wheelchair users would like to book in advance, they should call mac birmingham, The Electric, Library of Birmingham, or The REP for events at these venues, or the festival office on 0121 771 1509 for other venues.
