We want to ensure that people who may be struggling financially to purchase a ticket can still enjoy visiting Kings Place. Concessions tickets are a 50% discount on selected Kings Place events, as agreed with the promoter or artist. The concession ticket buyer can choose any available seat, and take advantage of the most expensive or the cheapest seats.
Concessions tickets are accessible for people on the following criteria:
All events with concessions tickets will have them listed when purchasing, and can be bought in the same way as normal tickets. A limited number of concessions tickets will be allocated on selected events (if the ticket type does not show in the booking pathway, it means they have all been sold). Please note that proof of eligibility may be requested at the venue.
If you are in receipt of disability benefit you may be eligible for our access scheme.
Please get in touch if you have any queries regarding the above at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pension Credit is not the same as a State Pension, which is not covered by the Kings Place concession scheme. Pension Credit is a grant from the government gives you extra money to help with your living costs if you’re over State Pension age and on a low income.

Universal Credit is the new combined benefit system that covers multiple previous benefits, including Child Tax Credit, Housing Benefit, Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA), income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), and Working Tax Credit. You should know if you’re in receipt of Universal Credit, but if you haven’t yet migrated onto it and are on one of the previous benefit pathways, you are still eligible for the concessions scheme. Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Carer’s Allowance sits outside of Universal Credit, however recipients of both are still eligible for the Kings Place concessions scheme.

This offer doesn’t work in conjunction with the concessions scheme, however you can assess yourself which tickets are cheaper and which you’d prefer to choose. https://www.kingsplace.co.uk/whats-on/under-14s-under-30s-tickets/
