All Tickets 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 it 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, for 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 Venue acting reasonably. If duplicates are being issued, a reasonable administration charge may be levied. We reserve the right to provide alternative seats at an Event to those specified on the Ticket if the staging of the Event reasonably requires, provided they are of no less value to that stated on the Ticket.
Where a concession is claimed, proof of identity and concession 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.
4. Price and payment
The price of the Ticket shall be the price set at the time We accept Your order. All prices set are inclusive of any applicable taxes but exclusive of any booking fee and collection or delivery fee (where applicable). No order will be accepted until We have received full payment.
Where electronic tickets are issued, they will be delivered electronically to the cardholder (e.g. to the address supplied to the cardholder or available to download as applicable). Tickets will only be delivered to the email address of the debit/credit card holder unless We specifically offer You the facility for Tickets to be sent to an alternative email address.
