Secure your place on a course by placing a £30 deposit

We try very hard to make our artistic activity as affordable as possible, subsidising where we can, but we know that it helps to spread the cost.

With the MAC save-a-space scheme, you can secure your space on a course for a deposit of £30, with the balance due 3 weeks before the course begins.

Please note you must place a deposit for the individual course you wish to attend. If you would like to attend multiple courses per term, or the same course across autumn, spring and summer term, you must place a deposit for each.

The deposit is non-refundable. If you decide not to pay the balance for your course by the dates stated above, the deposit will remain on your MAC account for 24 months so that you can spend it on a film, performance or another course of your choice.* Please note that this excludes our catering and retail offer. At the end of 24 months any unspent deposits will become a kind charitable donation to Midlands Arts Centre.


Payment plan for 2023/2024

After you've placed your £30 deposit, you must pay the remainder three weeks before the term begins.
