Museums, theatres and cinemas (activities for IVs and young people)
There is a wide range of activities you can do with a young person. Be aware that some places have age restrictions, so be sure to check that the young person (or you) will be able to attend.
Odeon Cinema - IVs Go Free!
We have arranged with Odeon cinemas for IVs to go free when they take their young person to the cinema. You will need to show your ID badge at the box office. If there are any problems, you could ask to speak to the duty manager and explain your role in a discreet manner (in case the young person might feel uncomfortable).

The Royal Exchange Theatre is taking part in a programme to encourage young people under 26 to visit the theatre. We have arranged for free tickets for the young person and their IV. Visit their website to find out what’s on.
To book tickets please contact us as this needs to be arranged through SCRS.
