Ticketing and Venue Information

The Festival takes place from 24 to 27 October 2019 at CCA Glasgow. CCA is a fully accessible venue and full information can be found on their website.

Tickets to all events are either free or priced on a Pay What You Can basis from £0 to £8 (in £2 increments).


In order to make Document more accessible to those on a low income, we use a sliding scale ticket price of £0-£8 for our events. You can choose what you pay based on your circumstances – you won’t be asked for any proof / ID, we just ask that you are honest! And, if you have a free ticket and can no longer use it, please cancel your order or let us know so that it can be used by someone else. Below is a rough guide to help you decide what you can afford to pay:
