Student Participation in Arts scheme (SPiA)

How it works

Plymouth University students receive up to £150 of credit to spend on selected films, music concerts, performances and talks

It's easy: look out for the SPiA logo on selected Peninsula Arts events, either in the season guide or online on the Peninsula Arts events listings, then book your tickets online, or via the Box Office and simply bring your student card along to the Box Office to pick up your ticket.

Levels of credit

  • £150: all arts students
  • £100: all other Plymouth University students

One ticket, per student, per event. Only events carrying the SPiA logo are included in the scheme.

'Voices' season

Peninsula Arts looks to support new and undiscovered cultural voices, as well as bringing those internationally renowned voices to the region and this is explored in this season’s programme.

In discussing how voices interpret and give new meaning to our shared cultural experiences, we looked at how artists and researchers provide a critical voice to help uncover new ways of seeing and understanding the world. We wanted to ensure you could transcend an individual cultural experience by adding depth to your own investigation of what this might mean by having the opportunity to visit various art-forms.
