How To Book
Are you ready to book your tickets? Take a look at the possible options and we look forward to welcoming you to a show soon!
Tickets may be booked online, over the phone or in person at our Box Office.
Box Office: 01664 851111
You can also use our secure online booking service.
We have introduced a new ticketing system which will considerably improve your experience when booking tickets for a show.
Using the latest technology, you can be confident that buying a ticket through our website is completely secure.
At all times, when using our website you will be using the http secure protocol.
Seating – Select Your Own Seat
On shows using a seating plan, choose your own seat for a performance.
For events such as Comedy Clubs seating is unreserved, and in these cases customers may sit where they like according to availability. Tickets will therefore not display a seat number, and seats are allocated on a first come first served basis.
Special Offer Alerts
Our new system will automatically provide you with information about reduced prices and other special offers making sure you get the best value for your money.
When you first make a purchase through our ticketing system you will be asked to set up a customer account. This is a simple process and once you have created your account our system will hold your password protected information, which you can access at any time. Simply use the Account button feature on the home page of our website. Once you have created your account, there will be no need to re-input your information when making future purchases.
Need some help?
If you have a problem with accessing or using our new online ticketing system, our Box Office staff are happy to give you advice.
Please contact us on 01664 851111 whilst you are still in the system.
A £1.00 booking fee will be charged per ticket.
This goes towards providing you with a 24/7 booking system; keeping you informed through our website, social media, and What’s On Guide; providing you with a varied programme of events; free on site parking for customers during show times; banking charges; our friendly and helpful staff; and keeping your Theatre open!
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
All customers will have the option to have their purchased tickets posted to them. There is a £1.50 charge for this service.
Print Your Tickets At Home
Booking online with our system offers customers the possibility of printing your tickets at home. This will save postage costs and the possibility of lost tickets. Simply follow the instructions during the booking process. We will contact you before the show with any key information regarding your visit, and after the event to find out what you thought about it!
Collection from Box Office (CoBO)
We aim to provide all of our customers with a friendly and welcoming Box Office and wider Theatre experience. With this in mind, you are able to request collection of your tickets from the Box Office free of charge. Please allow a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the show start time to ensure that these can be collected with enought time to find your way to your seats.
We welcome families, though some events are not considered suitable for young children and babies. All children under the age of 2 are welcome to attend for free and do not need a ticket. We do ask that you inform the Box Office if this is the case so that we can offer you an appropriate seat within the auditorium alongside the rest of your party.
Reservations, Returns, Refunds & Exchanges
We recommend that you check all of the ticket information thoroughly prior to making a purchase. All purchases are final, non-refundable, with no exchanges or returns. This policy also applies to tickets purchased from us for shows/events at other venues.
Tickets are sold subject to the right of the Promoter and/or the Management to make any necessary changes in the performance or event owing to unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances.
We do not offer reservations unless you are booking for a large group or schools, please see this policy further on.
