The Barn Theatre is giving NHS workers and St John Ambulance volunteers free tickets to their latest production.

They will be able to claim two free tickets for any Sunday matinee performance, subject to availability, throughout the run of Stones in His Pockets.

Just use the code THANKYOUNHS when booking and show a valid ID on arrival to the performance.

The production celebrates the 25th anniversary of Stones in His Pockets, Marie Jones’ Olivier Award-winning comedy, and is the theatre’s first since the complete relaxing of Covid rules in July.

Barn Theatre ambassador and TV medic Dr Dawn Harper said of the announcement, "I have been so proud of the way they have coped and innovated through the pandemic, always putting the safety of the actors and the public at the forefront.

"And as we open up, I am thrilled to hear they are giving back to the healthcare community by offering free tickets.

"I know the lucky recipients will be in for a real treat. Every performance at the Barn Theatre is top drawer."

Barn Theatre producer Beth George added: “We would not have survived the past year without the tireless work of the NHS and St John Ambulance, who have been protecting our country on the frontline of this devastating pandemic.

"This is just a small token of our appreciation for their heroic work and we hope that this feel-good comedy can provide an evening of much needed escapism and joy.”

The Barn Theatre is currently running at reduced capacity with booking groups being separated by Perspex screens and staff wearing face coverings. Audience members are encouraged to wear face coverings when at the venue.
