How Our Prices Work

How Our Prices Work

Better seats. Better prices. Better get your skates on.

We set our ticket prices in a similar way to airlines - the earlier you book, the cheaper the seat. And of course booking early means you get to choose the best ones. For this show, our standard price seats start low at £12.50 and rise over time to a maximum of £25 the nearer it gets to a performance. Book early to save up to 50%.

Our ticket price promise: the earlier you book, the more you save

Unlike most price promises, we guarantee that ours will never be cheaper than they are today.  The closer it gets to the performance date, the higher they become.  


To enjoy the best seat in the house, choose a Premium seat priced at £27.50.

More Shows, More Savings

You could save up to 25% on your order if you plan ahead and book multiple MAC shows at once. This offer is available year-round and best of all, you don't need to do anything.  All you need to do is add more than one show to your basket and we'll apply this discount automatically.

  • Book 2 events in your basket and we'll give you a discount of 15%
  • Book 3 events in your basket and we'll give you a discount of 20%
  • Book 4 or more events in your basket and we'll give you a discount of 25%


Booking Tips

  • Log into your MAC Account to ensure you get the best available discount.
  • Contact the MAC Box Office on 02890 235053 if you need any help or have any questions.
  • A maximum discount of £100 will apply to each customer account per calendar year.
  • The system will apply the offer fairly across your basket. This means the offer works best when you have the same number of tickets per show in the basket. For example, if you book 2 shows total, with 2 tickets for 1 show and 4 tickets for another, the discount will apply to two tickets for each show only.
