Swindon theatregoers can pick up a bargain next month as The Wyvern and Swindon Arts Theatre are giving away two-for-one tickets to a number of its March shows.

This is part of National Lottery 'Love Your Theatre' campaign, with the organisation subsidising over 180,000 tickets across the UK as a 'thank you' to National Lottery players for the £30m they raise each week for good causes - including arts and theatre. 

The initiative also hopes to encourage people to support their local theatre as venues across the UK look to recover from the impact of Covid-19.

In Swindon, the two major arts venues are giving away tickets to a number of high-profile shows incuding the upcoming Rocky Horror tour starring Strictly winner Ore Oduba, stand-up comedians Iain Stirling and Dylan Moran and even a live show from survivalist Ray Mears.
