What is TIX For 20?

We’ll be making a limited number of $20 New Zealand Festival of the Arts tickets available via email to TIX For 20 followers throughout the Festival, 21 February – 15 March.

Only selected shows will have $20 tickets available so book now online to avoid missing your favourite shows! To guarantee your seat, we recommend booking as early as possible.

TIX For 20 tickets will not be available for shows with a limited capacity, events priced under $30, Writers sessions and regional performances.

Stay tuned on Social Media (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram Story only) – we will post a TIX For 20 alert when a new offer is about to drop to the mailing list so you have time to sign up and receive the secret links

We offer TIX For 20 tickets because we want to make the Festival accessible to as many people as possible. We can’t control who buys these tickets but we would ask that if you know you can afford the full price please leave the $20 tickets for someone who can't as these are limited!
