We know just how difficult it can be to cover costs of getting out of the classroom. So we’ve come up with Passport to the MAC.


Passport to the MAC is part of our ongoing commitment to support the next generation of artists and performers.

We want to make it easy for your school to get the most out of the MAC experience, so Passport to the MAC is dedicated to providing transport to thousands of school pupils every year when they visit the MAC for our Christmas show. To be eligible for the Passport to the MAC scheme 2016, you must have registered your school before 30 June 2016. 

Who is it for?

Passport to the MAC can be used by any school from across Northern Ireland who is booking tickets for our Christmas show, Pinocchio.

Only schools registed before 30 June 2016 will be eligible for the scheme.

How it works

Each time your school engages with the MAC, simply show your passport at Box Office to receive a stamp.

Collect three stamps and your school is entitled to £350 worth of FREE bus travel* to our 2016 Christmas show, the enchanting Pinocchio.

Stamps are easy to collect:

  1. Enter our Masterpiece for the MAC competition
  2. Visit the MAC for a tour or workshop
  3. Book tickets to our Christmas show, Pinocchio

* Terms & Conditions apply


When you collect 3 stamps on your Passport, you will be eligible to receive up to £350 worth of transport to the Christmas show, arranged by the MAC.

If the cost of your transport is higher than £350, the MAC will invoice you for the outstanding amount.

We’re delighted to exclusively offer schools:

  • An £8 special reduced schools’ rate on tickets for the Christmas show.
  • For every 10 tickets booked, get an 11th ticket free.


The project is part-sponsored by Belfast Harbour.
