About School Bookings Current School Offers

The Wyvern Theatre and Arts Centre are bursting with exciting and inspiring ways to connect professional theatre-making with the National Curriculum. We host many educational children’s shows as well as plays and dance performances that feature on the GCSE and A Level syllabus, plus loads of entertaining shows to treat your class - like our annual pantomime!

We pride ourselves on offering fantastic school rates and the majority of our school shows allow free teacher tickets. If you are interested in a show or event that does not list a school discount, please contact our Ticket Office on 01793 524481 as we are often able to arrange this for you.

In addition to our special school rates, you'll also receive these great benefits:

  • No booking fees for bookings of 8+ tickets for the same show
  • Dedicated Group Bookings Coordinator
  • Flexible reservation periods and payment options
  • Reserve more than one show at once
  • Invoices which can be posted or emailed to you to review and check before paying
  • Free postage
  • Facility to pre-book hospitality packages including interval drinks, ice creams and private dining

We work closely with local coach company Barnes Coaches, meaning we’re able to offer exclusive discounts on coach hire for schools within a 10 mile radius of our theatres. Simply quote ‘Swindon Theatres’ when booking with Barnes Coaches to see what discounts are available to you.
