Thanks to Hastings Direct, hundreds of £5 tickets have been made available to our community to see Curve’s autumn co-production of Hanif Kureishi’s screenplay My Beautiful Laundrette in Leicester

Curve have joined forces with Belgrade Theatre Coventry, Everyman Theatre Cheltenham and Leeds Playhouse to co-produce this brand new ground-breaking Oscar-nominated screenplay.

As part of a shared commitment to the communities of Leicester and Leicestershire, the reduced-price tickets will be available to audience members with low income, bookers under the age of 26 and first-time theatre attenders.

Curve is a registered charity with a commitment to making theatre accessible to all. The theatre already offers a range of accessible tickets for all of its Made at Curve productions and the support from local insurance provider Hastings Direct will enable even more people to enjoy live theatre.
