Preview Performances Available

We are able to offer preview performances for companies performing in Week 1. This extra performance is ideal for showcasing your performance to reviewers and is available for a flat hourly rate.

How It Works

To get a quote, please talk to one of our programming staff using the contact details in the banner at the bottom of the page.  You can also use the interactive Price Calculator to get an idea of what it will cost to bring your production to Paradise Green. This will also help you choose your preferred performance spaces and times.

Our prices are all-inclusive, and we do not take a box office split. For more information on exactly what we offer, see Our Deal.

  • Bookings can be taken for almost any length of slot over one hour, according to your needs, and fractions of an hour are charged pro-rata. 
  • The slot must include time for your get-in and get-out before and after each performance.
  • The minimum get-in/get-out time is 20 minutes before and after your performance in the Sanctuary and Studio, 15 minutes in other spaces.  Shows with extensive technical set-up, substantial sets or lots of props must allow extra get-in and get-out time.
  • Bookings may be for the full length of the festival, or any combination of full weeks.
  • Your quote will be for the complete costs of hiring the venue for the full run of performances.
  • All prices are quoted in pounds sterling, and are not subject to VAT.
