Join our Access Scheme for free carer tickets, and easier online booking for wheelchair spaces.

The Gulbenkian Access Scheme is free for people with physical, sensory or learning disabilities.

When you sign up, we ask that, if possible, you let us know about your needs so that we can improve our audience experience to make it inclusive and accessible to all attendees.

By joining our Access Scheme, you may be entitled to concessionary ticket prices for some events, or a free companion seat (subject to availability and may not be available for certain performances). If you are a wheelchair user, the scheme gives you access to book wheelchair spaces online.

We are now opening our Access Scheme to Under 16s who require more than one carer/adult with them in order to attend at our venue or who are wheelchair users needing to book a wheelchair space online. Joining the scheme will enable you to select a free carer for the second carer’s ticket (the first carer needs to pay as normal, as per any other adult attending with a child).

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
