Tickets may be exchanged for tickets to future performances, or a gift token. You’ll need to return the ticket to the Ticket Office at least 24 hours before the performance. If you’re exchanging eight or more tickets, you’ll need to return them three weeks before.

There’s a booking amendment fee of £3.50 per ticket for any exchange or gift certificate. The maximum amount is £21 per booking. Handling and transaction charges are non-refundable.

If you’re late, you will not be allowed into the performance while it’s in progress.

Children under five

We put on some family-friendly performances but, generally speaking, we don’t allow children under the age of five in the audience.

Children under 16 can get half-priced tickets on selected matinees and some evening performances.

If the show does allow children under five, under twos go free. If you’re a parent or carer, please book aisle seats to make getting in and out easier.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
