Lyth Arts Aims For Families With Lower Priced Tickets
19th February 2018
Lyth Arts Centre have announced a family programme for Spring 2018, with some incredible shows coming to Caithness from some of Scotland's leading theatre companies, and international collaborations with companies from Jordan and Australia.
All tickets to family shows are £6, meaning a family of 4 will be able to attend for just £24. Lyth Arts Centre are also hosting a family film club on the last Sunday of each month at 11am. This includes a screening of a family friendly film, craft activities and refreshments, with free entry. Donations are welcome!
Tom Barnes, Co-Director of Lyth Arts Centre, said: "We are so pleased to bring some incredible shows to Lyth Arts Centre and the residents of Caithness. We want a trip to the theatre to be as affordable as possible, so have lowered our ticket price for all family shows to just £6 per person. We hope that this might encourage families to come to Lyth Arts Centre, particularly for those who have never been before. Our family film club also presents the opportunity to visit and see what we're about for no cost whatsoever. We want to make Lyth Arts Centre accessible for everybody in Caithness.'
