Festival Passes.

The Festival pass is a great way to see the films you love and save money. You pay just £30.00 for the pass and it buys you £40.00 worth of Festival tickets.

You can also apply your usual Arts Picturehouse membership discount when purchasing tickets for even bigger savings. Once you have your Festival Pass, we recommend purchasing Festival tickets in advance of your chosen screenings/events to avoid disappointment.
