Buying and using your tickets

  1. Ticket purchases may be restricted to a maximum number.
  2. Please check your tickets as it may not be possible to rectify mistakes later.
  3. A ticket must be purchased for any person over the age of three.
  4. Where a student discount is claimed, proof of identity and discount entitlement may be required.
  5. If you have a disability or mobility issue (e.g. you are a wheelchair user), please use the online ticket or phone booking service to tell us and indicate your needs. If you book in person at our pop up Box Office, please let us know then. We will do our best to meet your needs within the constraints of our venues. We offer a complimentary ticket for one carer/accompanying person of each disabled person who purchases a full priced ticket. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide a wheelchair for our customers’ use.
  6. Should you be unable to attend an event, you can return the ticket(s) to us; we will only refund the price, however, if we are able to re-sell the tickets when the event is otherwise sold out.
