CONTRACT AND INCORPORATION OF TERMS

1.1 Your contract for the purchase of Ticket(s) is formed as soon as We have processed Your payment and will expire immediately after the Event for which You purchased Ticket(s). However, any purchases are subject to payment card verification and other security checks and Your transaction may be cancelled if it has not passed Our verification processes.

1.2 Your purchase of Ticket(s) is subject to these Terms and Conditions, which incorporate and should be read in conjunction with the Event Partner(s)’ terms, conditions and regulations, copies of which are available on the Event or Venue website or at Venue box office. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms in relation to Venue or Promoter requirements, those of the Promoter shall prevail. If no Promoter, those of the Venue shall prevail.

1.3 Please note that our Terms and Conditions do not apply to purchases for tickets made from third parties. If you have any queries or complaints regarding your purchase of tickets from third parties, please contact them direct.

 

TICKETS

2.1 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 Ticket(s) constitutes agreement of these Terms and Conditions. A valid Ticket must be produced to get into an Event. Please notify Us of any access requirements at the time of booking. Removing any part of, altering or defacing the Ticket may invalidate Your Ticket.

2.2 It is Your responsibility to check Your Ticket(s) as mistakes cannot always be rectified after purchase. Please check your Ticket(s) on receipt carefully and contact us immediately if there is a mistake.

2.3 We will not be responsible for any Ticket that is lost, stolen or destroyed. The Management only accept responsibility for Tickets bought from one of its own managed sales points. Any queries regarding Tickets purchased from ticket agents must be directed back to the relevant agent.

2.4 It is not always possible to issue duplicate ticket(s). For example for non-seated events where there is a possibility of both the original and duplicate ticket(s) 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. If an e Ticket is reissued only the most recent version will be valid, previous tickets will be void and entry to the venue may not be permitted.

2.5 We and the Event Partner(s) 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.

2.6 Where a concession is claimed, proof of identity and concession entitlement (for example of age or student status) may be required.

2.7 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.

2.8 Any Ticket cannot be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes, unless formal written permission is given by the Event Partner(s), provided that even if such consent is obtained, use of Our trade marks and other intellectual property is subject to Our prior consent.

2.9 You agree not to obtain or attempt to obtain any Ticket(s) through unauthorised use of any robot, spider or other automated device or any other illegal or unauthorised activity. We reserve the right to cancel any Ticket transaction which We reasonably suspect to have been made in breach of these provisions without any notice to You and any and all Ticket(s) purchased as part of such transaction will be void.

 

PRICE AND PAYMENT

3.1The price of the Ticket shall be the price set at the time We accept Your order. All advertised prices are exclusive of any applicable taxes but are inclusive of ticket booking fee (where applicable) per transaction, collection or delivery fee.

3.2No order will be accepted until We have received full payment in cleared funds. We reserve the right to cancel any booking which We reasonably suspect to have been made fraudulently.

3.3 All concessions and discounts are subject to availability, they may be restricted to certain price levels and performances and can be withdrawn by us without notice

3.4 Only one concession or discount is available per ticket.

3.5 If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on the Site or otherwise communicated to You, or You are able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or pre-sale date or You are able to order a Ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale, then We will have the right to cancel that Ticket (or the order for that Ticket) and refund to You the amount that You paid. This will apply regardless of whether because of human error or a transactional malfunction of this website or other Perform operated system.

 

DELIVERY

4.1 If you select “e Ticket” Your Tickets will be delivered as an e Ticket to the email address provided when You registered on the Site. Your e Ticket must be printed or presented on a mobile or tablet device. If printed, Your e Ticket must be clearly printed to scale on plain A4, clean, white paper. Problems with printing will not be Our responsibility or the responsibility of the Venue. Unauthorised duplication of Your e Ticket may prevent Your admittance to the Event. We are not responsible for any inconvenience caused by unauthorised duplication. If unauthorised duplicates appear we reserve the right to refuse entry to all Ticket holders and may credit the original purchaser the face value, which will constitute full remuneration. Any duplicate Ticket issued by us, will render the original e Ticket null and void.

4.2E-Tickets will only be delivered to the email address provided at the time of booking. Hard copy ticket(s) will only be delivered to the billing address of the debit/credit card holder unless We specifically offer You the facility for Ticket(s) to be sent to an alternative address.

4.3E Tickets will be issued 14 days before the date of the performance. Any Tickets purchased less than 14 days prior to the date of the relevant performance will be issued within 1 working day. Hard copy ticket(s) will arrive no later than 5 Working Days before the date of the performance. If Your Ticket(s) are not being held at the Venue box office, and You have not received Your Ticket(s) from Us 5 Working Days prior to the Event, please contact Us.

4.4 If Ticket(s) dispatched by Royal Mail ordinary post, special delivery or signed for post are returned to Us as ‘addressee unknown’ We reserve the right to cancel Your booking and make a refund of the Ticket price only.

7.3 A 'material' change to the programme of the Event 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.

7.4 Where such a refund is sought due to cancellation, rescheduling or a material change to the programme of the Event, You must bring this to Our attention as soon as possible upon becoming aware of such material change, cancellation or where the Event has been rescheduled, prior to the rescheduled Event. The refund for Ticket(s) equals the price paid by You to Us for such Ticket, including the applicable per Ticket booking fee but excluding the per transaction collection or delivery fee. If You have opted to purchase Ticket Protection, please note that this is also non-refundable.

7.6 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 Tickets except, at Our discretion, where payment was made by cash.
