The Theatre Management reserves the right to check that every member of the audience has a valid ticket.
The Theatre will charge an administration fee of £1.75 per transaction on all bookings made on online.
Tickets may be exchanged for another performance for a nominal fee, however this must be arranged with the Box Office at least 7 days prior to the original performance date. Tickets purchased for performances in a Season (Summer, Autumn, Winter) must be exchanged within that Season.
In the event of a variance in the ticket price when exchanging to a less expensive performance we are unable to refund the difference, unless the difference is more than £10.00 per ticket.
In the event of a customer exchanging to a more expensive performance, the customer will be liable to pay the difference but we will waive our nominal fee for exchanging tickets.
Returned tickets may be offered for resale with no guarantees as priority will be given to the Theatre’s own ticket sales. Patrons are reminded that there is an administration charge on resold tickets.
The Theatre Management only accepts responsibility for tickets bought from one of its own managed sales points. Any queries regarding purchases from ticket agents must be directed back to the relevant agent.
The Theatre forbids the resale of a ticket for profit or commercial gain. Failure to comply will make the ticket void.
When booking by credit/debit card we remind patrons to have the relevant card with them when they collect their tickets from the box office.
Concessions are only available when supported by proof of entitlement.
When receiving tickets by post we ask patrons to check their tickets carefully to ensure they match with their requirements.
Discounts and special offers apply to full price tickets only and are not valid in the preview period or on Price Band 1 (yellow) seats. Only one discount can be allocated per ticket. Any leaflet offer is also subject to a single transaction at redemption and not for multiple purchases on future transactions.
Special offers cannot be applied retrospectively to purchases.
Special offer tickets are subject to availability and can be withdrawn without notice.
Saver Seat Tickets
When you book a Saver Seat ticket, you’re allocated the best seats available on the morning of the performance. This is done in date order of booking, so if you’re first to book these seats, you’ll be the first to have your seats allocated. Tickets can only be collected on the day of the performance. 50 seats are available per performance but may be withdrawn without notice. Whilst we endeavour to allocate saver seats in pairs or together where appropriate, we can offer no guarantee. A maximum of 4 tickets can be purchased at one time.
How To Save – Offers
For all offers, tickets must be booked at the same time. Mutliple offers cannot be combined to purchase tickets. Offers are only valid on full priced tickets.
Groups enjoy £3.00 per ticket on Price Bands 2 and 3 on all matinee performances. Group offers do not apply to preview performances or and Price Band 1 seats.

We aim to deal with complaints fairly, efficiently and effectively, and ensure that all complaints are handled in a consistent manner.

How to complain
Our aim is deal with any complaint as soon as possible. Many complaints can be resolved informally. In the first instance contact us and, if you feel able, speak to the member of staff (or team) with whom you have had contact or ask to speak to the relevant manager, who will try to resolve the matter.
If you make contact in person or by phone, please make a note of the name of the person you speak to. If a solution is offered at this point, make a note of this as well.
If you are not satisfied or do not wish an informal solution, you may pursue a formal complaint. Please put your complaint in writing and send it to:

If as a result of your complaint, disciplinary proceedings are taken against a member of staff, an internal procedure will apply.
