Terms & Conditions


Collection of Tickets

Tickets purchased over the phone, from the Seafront office or online will be held at the Seafront office for collection Tickets can be collected either on the performance day or in advance during opening hours.

Posting of Tickets

Tickets are posted out within 24 hours of receiving an order and payment is completed.
Postage is charged at £4.80 per transaction. Tickets are sent out by Royal Mail 'Signed For', due to fire safety regulations at venues they cannot be replaced if lost. This means that they require a signature on receipt. If there is nobody at home when the Post Office call, you should find that they have left a card with instructions: check this carefully, but usually you will have seven days to collect your tickets from the delivery office.

Non-Delivery of Tickets

If you have not received your tickets by ten working days prior to the gig, please call us on the telephone (01323 410611) for advice. Don’t leave it until the last minute!

Sometimes (mistakes happen) the Post Office may attempt delivery but not leave a card. In this case your tickets are likely to be at the delivery office – give us a call first so we can check if they’ve been returned to us, and look up the reference number for you if not.

Customers purchasing from other outlets are advised to consult individual ticket policies

Lost & Stolen Tickets

We can't always replace your tickets, so treat them like cash and keep them in a safe place out of direct sunlight and moisture. Tickets are printed on heat sensitive paper, so any contact with high temperatures will turn them completely black and they won't be valid, so please keep this in mind. Don't attempt to laminate them!

Refunds & Exchanges 

We regret that tickets once purchased, cannot be refunded or exchanged. However, we will accept tickets for resale and once resold the value of the tickets will be issued as customer credit less £2.00 admin charge.
