Press tickets

We offer a limited number of press tickets for most of our productions, giving priority to journalists writing reviews. It’s not always possible to offer a plus one. Sometimes it’s not up to us who can have a ticket – for some events, the decision is made by the venue.

Our boilerplate

National Theatre Wales is a free-range theatre company that exists to find and tell the most powerful stories of Wales and its people. A mirror and a microscope for all of us.

We’re not tied to a building, which gives us the freedom to approach everything we do creatively, connecting people, places and ideas that spark stories into life.

We were founded in 2011 as Wales’ English language theatre company, and our job is to create a nationwide community, welcoming people from all walks of life. TEAM; our approach to working with communities, is key to this. It opens up creative opportunities for people who may never have thought of theatre as something for them.

We’re a registered charity (no 1127952) and we rely on the generosity of external donors to help us thrive. Our key funders are Arts Council of Wales and Welsh Government.

Everything starts with a conversation here at NTW and we’re always looking to hear from anyone who may like to get involved in supporting us, financially or otherwise.
