If you’re an LJMU English student, you can see The BFG for free on Tuesday, 18th October 2016, as part of the Philharmonic’s partnership with your university. All you need to do is to book over the phone (Box Office number: 0151 709 3789), or buy from the Box Office at the Philharmonic Hall on Hope Street in person. When you collect your tickets, you will need to show your LJMU student card.

No-one (and least of all a literature student) can have too much Roald Dahl in their life, clearly, but if you haven’t yet seen a film at the Phil, you’re missing out on one of Liverpool’s best cultural experiences. The screen, supposedly the last of its kind in the world, rises out of the stage while the Phil’s resident cinema organist, Dave Nicholas, does his thing. In a kilt. Call the Box Office now!

The Phil are also showing Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake, on 16 November 2016, and the all the same things – free tickets for LJMU students, and men in kilts, apply. Make the most of it!
