Booking Reference

Your booking reference will be on your PayPal payment confirmation. Please bring this with you to the theatre

If you experience any difficulties with our booking system please email with as much information as possible. We will resolve it for you as quickly as we can.

Online Booking

It is very easy. Use the link at the bottom to start the process. The booking system will open in a new window so that you can still refer to the seating plan.

You will be shown a table, which will show you how many seats are available in each row, on each performance date.

In this first screen, enter your details as prompted, the number of tickets you want in each category (full price, member etcetera), and the row you want to sit in, making sure that this has sufficient seats for your whole party.

Press 'go' to go to the next screen, where you will be able to select the seat numbers you want from those available.

You will then be shown the total cost of your booking, and will be asked to pay for these via the secure PayPal system.

Your tickets: Your tickets will be available for you to collect at the box office when you arrive for the performance. If applicable, you will be required to provide proof of membership when collecting your tickets. Proof of eligibility for concessions may also be required.

Our definition of concessions is:
  • 60 years or over
  • Students
  • Disabled persons

Seat Choice

Please choose your seats with thought for others, and do not leave empty single seats in rows if you can avoid it.
We do reserve the right to change seat allocations if necessary.
