Why are some Programme + Explore tickets chargeable while some offer a refundable deposit?
The Artground (TAG) is vested in the development of artists working in the Arts for Young Audiences sector, and offers artist capability development programmes to support this. TAG provides the platform for these artists to test their ideas or present works-in-development and seek feedback from the audience after these sessions to further develop its theatrical experience. To bridge accessibility between artists and audiences, TAG offers these programmes for free (with a refundable deposit collected upon booking). To encourage bookings to be made considerately, in the event of no-show, the deposit will be forfeited. No cancellations are permitted.
