These will form a legally binding contract so please do take the time to read them and make sure you understand them.

We reserve the right to change, modify, add to, or delete portions of these terms at any time including to reflect changes affecting the Ticket services, Ticket Provider requirements, payment methods, relevant laws, health and safety requirements recommended or imposed by local or national Government and regulatory requirements. If we do change the terms, we will post the changes on this page and will indicate the effective date at the top. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms so that you are aware of any changes. Your continued use of the site after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new terms and you will be subject to the policies and terms in force at the time that you order the relevant Tickets from us. If you do not agree to (or are unable to comply with) the terms as amended, please do not continue to use the site. You must be at least 18 years of age to agree to, and enter into, a contract on your own behalf and to register for use of this site.

All Tickets are sold subject to availability and to these terms. Tickets may be restricted to a maximum number. Any such restriction shall be notified to you at the time you book the Tickets. We reserve the right to cancel Tickets purchased in excess of this number and without the Organiser’s agreement, without prior notice unless the excess purchase was due to our error. It is your responsibility to check your Tickets when you receive them as if you have made a mistake it cannot always be rectified after purchase. Please check your Tickets on receipt carefully and contact us immediately by emailing us at [email protected] if there is a mistake. A valid Ticket must be produced for entry to an Event. Removing any part of, altering or defacing the Ticket may invalidate your Ticket. Please keep your Tickets safe. We will not be responsible for any Ticket that is lost, stolen or destroyed. Refunds will not be made on lost or unused tickets. Duplicates may be issued at the discretion of the Organiser. If duplicates are issued, we may charge a reasonable administration fee. Where a concession is claimed, proof of identity and entitlement (for example of age or student status) may be required. Ownership or possession of a Ticket does not confer any rights (by implication or otherwise) on you to use, alter, copy or otherwise deal with any of the symbols, trademarks, logos and/or intellectual property appearing on the Ticket.
Placing an order and price and payment
The contract for the purchase of any Ticket will be between you and the Organiser. These contracts will only be formed when the Organiser has received payment in full for the Ticket(s). Until such time there is no contract between you and the Organiser for the Ticket(s) or related services. The Organiser reserves the right in its sole discretion to reject any order it receives. The price of any Ticket will be as quoted on this site at the time we accept your order, except in the case of obvious error. This price will include VAT where applicable but is exclusive of any booking fee and collection or delivery fee which will be indicated to you during the order process (including on the breakdown of costs on the order page and confirmation of order page). Prices are subject to change at any time. We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Ticket(s) displayed on our site are correct. If an error or inaccuracy is discovered and we have not yet taken payment we will normally reject your order for Tickets and notify you of such rejection. You will then be able to order the Tickets at the correct price if you wish (subject to availability). We are under no obligation to provide the Ticket(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a pricing mistake. We reserve the right to withdraw from any contract in the case of obvious and unmistakable pricing errors. Payment for all Tickets must be made on-line by Visa, MasterCard, Paypal or Stripe. By providing the details of a credit, debit card or Paypal, you confirm that you are authorised to purchase the Tickets and that you are the holder of the relevant credit/debit card/account or are expressly authorised to use this to purchase the Tickets. We use a third-party payment provider to assist us to process payment. We reserve the right to cancel bookings which we reasonably suspect to have been made fraudulently.
We will offer you delivery options (which may include box office collection) as part of the Ticket order process. Your Ticket(s) will be despatched in accordance with the delivery option chosen. If postal delivery is chosen, Tickets will be delivered to the billing address of the debit/credit card holder unless you specify an alternative delivery address. If Tickets despatched by Royal Mail ordinary post, special delivery or registered post are returned as “addressee unknown” we reserve the right to cancel your booking and refund the Ticket price only (i.e. you will not receive a refund of the booking fee or the collection or delivery fee) or to charge you an additional delivery fee (which will be an amount equal to the delivery fee for the Tickets indicated to you when you place your order) if we agree to re-deliver the Tickets to an alternative address. The additional delivery fee will be charged for each and every attempted re-delivery of the Tickets even if the Tickets are again returned to us as “addressee unknown” (i.e. if the delivery fee is £5 you will be required to pay this when you place your order and will be required to pay £5 again each and every time we attempt to redeliver the Tickets). Each additional delivery fee must be received by the Organisers before the Tickets are despatched for re-delivery. If your Tickets are being sent to you and you have not received your Tickets from us 72 hours prior to the Event, please contact us by emailing us at [email protected] We reserve the right to make Tickets available for collection at the Venue box office, for example if there is not sufficient time to post the Tickets before the Event is to take place. You will be notified by telephone, email or in writing of the arrangements for collection (using the details provided at the time of ordering) if this becomes necessary. If you are collecting your Tickets from the Venue box office, you must have your acknowledgement of order and the credit/debit card used to make the order with you. If you do not bring the required forms of identification, you may not be able to receive the Tickets. We will notify you when your Tickets are available for collection. Where available, Ticket concessions will be notified to you at the point of purchase (e.g. student). By ordering a discounted concession Ticket you accept that, in order to gain entry, you or the relevant member of your party must be able to provide, at the Event, valid photographic proof of entitlement to the concession in a form which is acceptable to the Organiser. Age restrictions for Events will also be notified to you at point of purchase. By ordering a Ticket for an Event to which an age restriction applies you accept that, in order to gain entry, you and each member of your party must be able to provide valid photographic proof that each of you meet the minimum age requirement for the Event in a form which is acceptable to the Organiser or Venue at the Event. You accept that your Tickets may be withheld and you and/or members of your party may be refused entry if you are unable to provide such proof. We shall not be liable for any refusal of entry if you and/or the relevant members of your party are unable to provide such proof.
Changes to Event and cancelled/re-scheduled Events
The Organiser reserves the right to make alterations to the published Event programme where reasonably necessary. It is your responsibility to ascertain whether an Event has been cancelled or re-scheduled and the date and time of any re-scheduled Event. Where an Event is cancelled or re-scheduled, we will use our reasonable endeavours to notify you using the details you provided us at the time of ordering. We cannot guarantee that you will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the Event.
After you have purchased a Ticket it cannot be exchanged or refunded. Where (i) an Event is cancelled by the Organiser; or (ii) an Event is cancelled or curtailed because of circumstances beyond our control, we shall not be liable to make any refund or pay any compensation beyond the refunds that may be payable under the Organiser’s rules. Where a refund is sought you must bring this to our attention as soon as possible upon becoming aware of such change or cancellation. The refund for Tickets will be for the face value of the Tickets purchased only (unless otherwise stated). Should the Event be cancelled due to Local or National Government Health & Safety concerns or guidance then we will not be liable to make any refund or pay compensation but will roll over tickets to an alternative Event date. In order to claim your refund, please apply within 30 days by emailing us at [email protected] We may require you to return your complete unused Tickets, if received. It is your responsibility to ensure that Tickets are returned where required. We recommend using registered or special delivery post to return your Tickets. Refunds shall only be made to the person who purchased the Tickets and, when possible, shall be made using the same method used to purchase the Tickets. These terms do not and shall not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. For further information about your statutory rights you can contact Citizens Advice, Consumer Direct or the Department for Business Innovation and Skills
Resale/use of Tickets
Tickets are only for your personal use or that of your party. We reserve the right to cancel any Tickets if you resell or attempt to resell such Tickets in breach of this section (including any resale or attempted resale of Tickets at a higher price than the purchase price, for example tickets being resold at a higher price via any internet auction site). The holder of a resold Ticket may be refused entry or ejected from the Venue. Re-sales or transfers of Tickets (even within your party) may be prohibited for certain Events by the specific terms of those Events (for example free tickets, tickets to charity events or events where age restrictions may apply may not be capable of being transferred). You may not, without the prior consent of the relevant Ticket Provider use any Ticket in advertising, promotions, competitions, free draws etc.
Any Ticket obtained in breach of these terms shall be void and all rights conferred or evidenced by such Ticket shall be void. Any person seeking to use such a void Ticket in order to gain or provide entry to an Event may be considered to be a trespasser and may be liable to be ejected and subject to legal action. Void Tickets are non-refundable.
Conditions of Admission
You must comply with the instructions and directions given by Organiser and Event staff and stewards and with all relevant laws, safety announcements and Event regulations whilst attending the Event.

The Organiser also reserves the right to request that Ticket holders leave the Event at any point on reasonable grounds and may take any appropriate action to enforce this right. By way of example, the Organiser may remove a Ticket holder who:

The use of equipment for recording or transmitting any audio, visual or audio-visual material or any information or data inside the Event is strictly forbidden. Unauthorised recordings, tapes, films or similar items may be confiscated and destroyed. The Organiser will not be liable for any loss, theft or damage to confiscated items. Ticket holders entering the Event may be filmed, photographed and/or recorded for broadcast, event promotion or security purposes. The Organiser may use such films and recordings without payment and without further notice.
