1. Tickets

All Tickets for 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 get into an Event. Removing any part of, altering or defacing the Ticket may invalidate Your Ticket.

It is Your responsibility to check Your Tickets as if you have made a mistake they 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. It is not always possible to issue duplicate tickets, for example but not limited to 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 Promoter or the Venue acting reasonably. In the event of duplicates being issued, a reasonable administration charge may be levied.

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, trade marks, logos and/or intellectual property appearing on the Ticket.

2. Price and payment

The price of the Ticket shall be the price set at the time We accept Your order. No order will be accepted until We have received full payment.

3. Changes to Event

Where reasonably necessary, We reserve the right to make alterations to the published Event programme.

4. Refunds/exchanges

Except where We offer an applicable Ticket exchange or resale facility, Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase unless the performance is cancelled or rescheduled (subject to below) or where there is a material change to the programme of Event. Where the Event is cancelled or rescheduled (subject to below), You will be entitled to claim a refund from Us in accordance with this clause.

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.

Where such a refund is sought You must bring this to Our attention as soon as possible upon becoming aware of such change and, where the Event has been rescheduled, prior to the rescheduled Event. The refund for Tickets equals the face value of the Tickets 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 Ticket(s).

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, Consumer Direct (http://www.consumerdirect.gov.uk/) or the Department for Business Enterprise & Regulatory Reform

5. Liability

Personal arrangements including travel, accommodation or hospitality relating to the Event which have been arranged by You are at your own risk.  Liability for the cancellation or rescheduling of an Event, or for material changes to an Event, will be limited to the refund as set forth in Section 7.

Neither We nor the Venue nor will be responsible for any loss, theft or damage of Your personal belongings, other than caused as a result of Our negligence or that of the Venue or the Promoter or other breach of statutory duty.

6. Cancellation/re-scheduling the Event

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 with at the time of ordering. We do not guarantee that You will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the Event.

It is Your responsibility to inform Us of any change to the contact email address You provide Us with at the time of ordering.

8. Resale/use of Tickets and property

You may not re-sell or transfer a Ticket if prohibited by law.

Circumstances where We may consider that a Ticket is being resold in the course of business include:

1) Where a Ticket is sold or advertised for sale for profit (as defined below) through any medium not authorised by Us, including through unauthorised online auction or other websites.  Such a sale will be assessed in the light of the factors set out at 2 & 3 below.

2) Where a single Ticket reseller frequently advertises or offers tickets for resale for the same event or multiple events.

3) Where we reasonably consider that a Ticket offered for resale has originally been purchased with the specific intention of offering it for resale for profit and with no intention for the original purchaser or a friend or associate of the purchaser to make use of the Ticket by attending the event.

4) Where we offer an authorised exchange, return or resales facility, a Ticket offered for resale for profit more than fourteen days before the event takes place and through sales channels that have not been authorised by Us will automatically be considered to be a business transaction.  Such a sale will be assessed in light of factors set out at 2 & 3 above. If a ticket is offered for resale for profit less than fourteen days before the event takes place then We may determine whether We consider this to be a business transaction by taking other factors into consideration including:

a. The number of tickets being offered for sale by the ticket reseller.

b. Any evidence that You or someone for whom You have bought the ticket can provide regarding the fact that he/she cannot attend the event for genuine reasons.

c. Whether a third party business (such as an online auction site or other such ticket resale facilitator) not authorised by Us will benefit financially by way of commission or other fee from facilitating the resale of the ticket, particularly if that financial benefit varies according to the price paid for the resold ticket.

Re-selling a Ticket for profit means any re-sale that seeks a price that is higher than the face value of the ticket and the relevant booking fee and/or handling fee (if any) that You paid for the Ticket.

Where a Ticket is offered for resale in line with these terms and conditions, you must provide to the buyer full details of the ticket. Full details include, if printed on the ticket, the block or tier, row and seat number as well as the name of the original supplier and any booking reference number.  Buyers must also be made aware of these terms and conditions and any other terms and conditions that are specific to the event.  You should check whether any special terms apply before offering a free Ticket for resale. Free tickets are often provided for specific reasons limiting their transferability.

9. Conditions of Admission

We reserve the right to refuse Ticket holders admission to the Venue in reasonable circumstances including for health and safety, licensing reasons or where a Ticket is void.
We also reserve the right to request that Ticket holders leave the Venue at any point on reasonable grounds and may take any appropriate action to enforce this right. By way of example, the Venue may remove a Ticket holder who:

1) has behaved in the Venue in a manner which, in the reasonable opinion of the Venue has, or is likely to affect the enjoyment of other visitors; or

2) uses threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or in any way provokes or behaves in a manner which may provoke a breach of the peace; or

3) in the reasonable opinion of the Venue is acting under the influence of alcohol or drugs; or
