2. CONDITIONS OF SALE AND EXCHANGES
All tickets are sold subject to availability and to these terms and conditions. These terms and conditions should be read carefully prior to purchase and any queries relating to them should be raised with us prior to purchase, as purchase of tickets constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions.
A valid ticket must be produced to gain entrance to an event. The Ticket must be retained by the Customer whilst in the Venue and be made available for inspection if requested by the Venue staff. Failure to produce a valid Ticket may result in expulsion from the Venue.
Please notify us of any access requirements at the time of booking.
It is your responsibility to check your tickets as mistakes cannot always be rectified after purchase. Please check your tickets on receipt carefully and contact us immediately if there is a mistake. We will not be responsible for any ticket that is lost, stolen or destroyed.
The Management only accept responsibility for tickets bought from one of its own managed sales points. Any queries regarding tickets purchased from ticket agents must be directed back to the relevant agent. It is not always possible to issue duplicate tickets. For example for non-seated events where there is a possibility of both the original and duplicate tickets being used, compromising the licensed capacity of the venue. Duplicates may therefore be issued at the discretion of the venue or the promoter. If duplicates are issued, an administration charge may be levied. We and the promoter reserve the right to provide alternative seats at an event to those specified on the ticket if the staging of the event reasonably requires, provided they are of no less value to that stated on the ticket. Where a concession is claimed, proof of identity and concession entitlement (for example of age or student status) may be required.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to ascertain whether an Event has been cancelled or rescheduled. In such cases the Venue will make all reasonable endeavours to notify Customers of the change, but cannot guarantee all will be informed before the date of the Event.
It is the Customer’s responsibility to assess the suitability of an Event for children where no official age restriction applies.
3. TICKET PRICES AND PAYMENT
The price of the ticket shall be the price set at the time we accept your order. All prices set are inclusive of VAT and any booking fees. The customer will be offered the option of having tickets posted to them at an additional charge, otherwise they will be held for collection.
Ticket prices are subject to change and the Venue reserves the right to change the prices of Tickets and/or introduce discounts/special offers which cannot be retrospectively applied to Tickets already purchased.
All discounts are offered subject to availability and therefore Tickets may not be available at all advertised prices at all times.
Concession/discounted Ticket prices must be applied for at the time of purchase and cannot be applied to Tickets already purchased.
Proof of entitlement to a concession/discount may be requested from the Customer at the time of booking and/ or when they attend the Event. Failure to produce reasonable proof of entitlement to a concession/discount may invalidate the Ticket and result in refusal of admittance or ejection from the Venue.
Tickets will be held at Box Office for collection or, at an extra charge, will be posted to the billing address of the debit/credit card holder unless We specifically offer you the facility for tickets to be sent to an alternative address. If your tickets are not being held at the venue box office, and you have not received your tickets from us 72 hours prior to the event, please contact us. If tickets dispatched by Royal Mail ordinary post are returned to us as ‘addressee unknown’ we reserve the right to cancel your booking and make a refund of the ticket price only. Where there is not enough time to deliver tickets, you will be told at the point of purchase the arrangements for collection of your tickets. If you are collecting your tickets from the venue box office, you must have the credit/debit card used to make the order with you.
5. CHANGES TO EVENT
The organiser of the event and/or the venue reserves the right to make alterations to the published event programme and casting where reasonably necessary.
If you are unable to attend the event through no fault of ours, we may offer a ticket exchange facility for a different performance of the same production, subject to availability.
In order to obtain an exchange you must contact us at least a week before the event. Tickets can be exchanged for a seat of the same value, within its current run at the same venue and will be subject to a per ticket exchange fee. If a discount has been applied to the tickets, then this will only be honoured within the original terms and conditions of the offer.
If the tickets are exchanged for tickets of a higher value the difference must be paid. If the tickets are exchanged for tickets of a lower value the difference might be retained by the producer of the event.
If the event has been booked though us for a promoter or group then an exchange may not be offered and we would refer to the promoter/groups own terms and conditions of sale.
Tickets cannot be refunded unless the performance is cancelled or rescheduled (subject to below) or where there is a material change to the programme of event.
If a resale facility is available, resale of these tickets cannot be guaranteed and is subject to a per ticket administrative charge. Where an event is cancelled or rescheduled (subject to below) by the venue or promoter, where an event is cancelled or rescheduled due to circumstances beyond our control, or where there is a material change to the programme of the event, you will be entitled to claim a refund.
A 'material' change is a change which, in our reasonable opinion, makes the event materially different to the event that purchasers of the ticket, taken generally, could reasonably expect. The use of understudies in a theatre performance shall not be a material change. The refund for tickets equals the face value of the tickets purchased.
Refunds shall only be made to the person who purchased the tickets and, when possible, be made using the same method as was used to purchase the tickets except, at our discretion, where payment was made by cash. These terms and conditions do not and shall not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. For further information about your statutory rights contact Citizens Advice - www.adviceguide.org.uk
The Box Office may issue a credit voucher for tickets returned at least one week before the performance. For tickets returned less than a week before a sold out performance, the Box Office must ensure a buyer for the ticket(s) before a credit voucher can be offered. Admin charges do apply. Cash refunds cannot be given.
