We have a simple ambition: an enjoyable trip for pupils; a stress-free visit for staff.


School groups £12.00 per ticket (£12.50 for the Beauty and The Beast)

Free teachers’ tickets

A free teacher’s ticket for every 10 children’s tickets bought.

Reserved parking

Free, reserved parking on our patrolled, on-site car-park.

Easy to get to… safe… secure

We’re only a few hundred yards from the A500 and less than 15 minutes from M6 Junctions 15 or 16. With our on-site car-park, your group is dropped only yards from the door and is back on the coach in minutes. You never have to leave our grounds so can enjoy a safe and secure visit.

New Vic Theatre In The Round Stoke

Christmas production

For our Christmas shows, we also offer:

Assisted places

Up to six free tickets for schools bringing a group. Please allocate these at your discretion; we hope it means children who might otherwise have missed out are able to join the trip. Let us know when booking if you require these.

Free tea & coffee

As a contribution to a hard-working day, a free cup of tea or coffee for teachers accompanying school parties. We hope it helps!

Interval ice-cream reservations

Avoid the queues by reserving the interval refreshments you need. They’ll be waiting for you to pick them up. Box Office will help with the details.

Areas for packed lunches

For schools travelling long distances, we have areas for packed lunches. We have limited space and you must book in advance.

Tickets for fundraising

Six pairs of tickets (for any show other than the Christmas production) to use to benefit your school – as raffle prizes, for an auction, or as a reward for hard-working colleagues. Ask for these when booking.

Foyer exhibition of pupils’ work

Schools coming to the New Vic at Christmas have the opportunity to contribute to our Christmas exhibition, one of the highlights of the New Vic’s year. Our audiences love it and the children are always excited to see their work exhibited.
