2. Tickets

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 gain entrance to the Event. All persons require a ticket. 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 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 Organiser acting reasonably. If duplicates are being issued, an administration charge may apply.

3. 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.

Where there is not enough time to deliver Tickets, You will be contacted to arrange for collection of Your tickets.

5. Changes to Event

The Organiser and/or the Venue reserves the right to make alterations to the published Event programme where reasonably necessary.
