School Visit

With so many exciting and high quailty performances and screenings, Gulbenkian's got much going on for schools and we know teachers are busy people so we've put together some useful information to make your visit easier and even more enjoyable.

 

HOW LONG ARE POST SHOW DISCUSSIONS?
Post show discussions usually last between 20-30minutes and are a good opportunity for students to ask the performers and members of the company questions about the performance.

WHAT ARE FILMTALKS?
FilmTalks are organised post-screening talks or introductions about a topic to do with the film. Organised with the University of Kent's Film Studies department these are a fantastic insight into film.

PAYING BY INVOICE?

A non-refundable deposit of at least 25% will be required from schools (payable by invoice) at time of booking. Numbers can be tweaked between time of booking and one month prior to the performance, when the remainder of the sale will then be payable.  To book and for more information call our ticketing & information team on 01227 79075 who will be happy to help.

WHERE ARE THE TOILETS?
Located on the ground floor in Gulbenkian next to the Ticket & Information office and in Colyer-Fergusson next to the Lift.
