Manchester International Festival runs a low-cost ticket scheme for local audiences, which is designed to make MIF events more accessible to more people across Greater Manchester.

We have set aside around 10% of all MIF21 tickets for Greater Manchester residents on lower wages. We suggest that anything around or below an annual full-time salary of £18,000, which approximately equates to the UK Living Wage, could be considered a lower wage.

These £10 tickets are available on a first-come, first-served honesty basis, and are limited to a maximum of two tickets per person per event. Our ticketing system will verify whether you live in Greater Manchester – please bring photo ID and proof of your address when attending.

We hope these £10 tickets will make MIF21 more accessible to more people across Greater Manchester. Please think about whether you qualify for these tickets before purchasing – and if not, please leave these tickets for those who do. Thank you.
