Pay What You Decide
Barbican Theatre’s PETROL HEADZ ON TOUR showcases the street culture surrounding the modified car scene. Featuring sound systems,  parkour stunts,  modified cars, dancers, DJs and MC battles, our show is energetic, exciting and fun!
As part of PETROL HEADZ ON TOUR there will be 4 shows at Thê Depø Venue club – high energy shows celebrating nightlife, street culture and the unique talents that Plymouth has to offer. We’ll also have some stunning performances and epic modified cars on the new Millbank Boulevard on Union Street before the main Depø show starts. 
With gravity defying stunts from Plymouth Parkour, we’ll draw you into a world of Drum and Bass and DJ battles, dance parties and drift car footage and take you on a journey into our love affair with the modified car scene. Featuring platinum-selling DJ Charlotte DeVaney and MC Maddy V and dancers from across Plymouth.

Pay What You Decide
This show is a Pay What You Decide performance, which means you get to decide how much you pay!
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, and you can pay what you decide when you book or you can wait to pay until after you have seen the show.
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows, more often.
We want you to feel you can take a risk, try watching something new and get a chance to see new types of shows, and encounter stories you’ve not heard before. This might be your first opportunity to step inside a theatre- we look forward to seeing you here. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
You can decide what you would like to pay now by adding a donation to your booking, or you can pay after you have seen the show. Looking around at other events going on in the city, we estimate that 1 ticket to similar events would cost £10. There is no ‘right’ answer, we are not attempting to lead you to a specific figure. You can pay £0 for your ticket.
We’ll have contactless card machines and ways for you to pay by cash on the night.
The artists/practitioners/professionals taking part in this show have all been paid out of funding received from Arts Council England, Garfield Western Foundation and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. Their generous support helps us bring exciting new companies to Plymouth. Any money you pay to see the show enables us to keep bringing shows, employing artists and developing the voices of young creatives in Plymouth.
