Lightning pitch

What's the ticket release schedule?

Free tickets will be released on the following schedule:

  • First batch: Wednesday 13 September at 1pm

  • Second batch: Monday 18 September at 1pm

  • Final batch and opening of waiting list: Thursday 21 September at 1pm

Important: We need every person's individual name, which means you can't book a ticket for someone else (sorry!) This is for security at our venue. If two tickets are booked under the same name, we've set up a system where the duplicates will be automatically cancelled. Thanks for understanding!

We keep as many tickets free as possible but, if you want to skip straight into the event, you can purchase a supporter ticket too.

All proceeds get ploughed back into the event and – one day we hope – we might be able to raise enough to add more events to the list!
