How much do tickets cost?

It’s Pay What You Can and you can buy tickets for each day of the festival on the door. So, it’s not like a cinema where you’d pay for one film – you get the whole day of activities included in whatever payment you make. Alternatively, you can buy a pass for the whole festival.

We don’t ask for proof of income but we appreciate your honesty when choosing how much you can give. There’ll be a friendly face on the ticket desk who can explain it all.

Cash or card payments accepted.

Where can I get a copy of the programme?

There'll be loads of free, printed copies of the programme at the venue. The programme is also available online

Do I need to reserve for specific films? 

Yes, please. Though the price of your weekend or day pass includes entry to all films, we do ask that you reserve a seat for these showings:  

  • all the feature films 

  • the After Dark shorts (Friday night) 

  • the Northern Shorts (Saturday afternoon)


There will be a "box office" at CLAY where you can pick up a ticket for all the films you want to be sure to get a seat for. Weekend pass holders can reserve for all films throughout the weekend; day pass holders can reserve for the films showing on that day. 

Picking up tickets must be done in person; one person can pick up a maximum of 4 tickets for each film. You'll be asked to show your ticket on your way into the cinema for the above showings. 


Do I need to book for workshops? 

You can sign up for a workshop on the day at the CLAY box office. These are limited capacity and first-come/first-served.


Please get in touch at to discuss any access needs that would make it easier for you to participate in a workshop, including BSL. 

How much is the food?

It’ll be various prices but dead cheap. Snacks are usually £1 and a hot meal £2-£3. It’s all vegan and super tasty; cakes, samosas, hot dogs, soup, curry, etc. There will also be hot and cold drinks.

Cash or card payments accepted.

Can I bring my dog/kids/straight mates?

Service dogs only, please. 

Yes to supervised kids although most of the content is not suitable for younger eyes. The After Dark shorts programme (Friday night) and party (Saturday night) are for over 18s only. 

And yes, although most of the content is LGBTQ focussed, we welcome people of all identities.

Can I store my bike at CLAY? 

Unfortunately there is not suitable space to leave your bike inside CLAY, so please secure it outside. Nearby bicycle racks include outside the Reliance on North Street or outside the Job Centre on Bridge Street.
