Karatalo belongs to the Kaikukortti network
With the Kaikukortti card, you can get free tickets to cultural events involved in the Kaikukortti network. The network includes dozens of cultural venues in Espoo. Karatalo events available to Kaikukortti cardholders are specified in the event details. Kaikukortti cardholders can acquire tickets in advance from official Lippupiste outlets (not, however, online via Lippu.fi) and also at the Karatalo ticket counter one hour prior to the event in question, if Kaikukortti quota tickets remain available. Only a limited number of tickets are available to Kaikukortti card holders. Please provide the number of your Kaikukortti card when making the reservation or purchase. You must also be prepared to show your Kaikukortti card at the venue. Please also note that if you purchase a ticket through Lippupiste, you have to pay a service charge even though the ticket itself is free of charge.

Visit Karatalo with a culture buddy
Would you like to attend a cultural event but find it difficult to do so? A culture buddy is a volunteer who provides company and support for cultural visits. You can order a culture buddy for yourself, an acquaintance or a small group. Persons under 18 years of age may take part in culture buddy activities with their family or an adult responsible for them. With a culture buddy, you can get free admission or a discounted ticket to many concerts, theatre and dance performances, exhibitions and museums. The culture buddy’s company and ticket are free-of-charge.
