terms and conditions

Tickets and vouchers cannot be refunded after purchase unless the performance is cancelled or rescheduled or where there is a material change to the programme of Event.

Events cancelled or rescheduled by Shakespeare North Playhouse or Promoter are eligible for a refund or exchange. Should an event be cancelled we will be in touch with you by email or phone with information specific to your booking. Where a customer opts to keep their tickets for a rescheduled date or rebooks their tickets following a cancellation, this is considered as a firm booking and is subject to our usual terms and conditions above. Should you be moved to an alternative performance no response 21 days after the initial communication from Shakespeare North Playhouse will be considered a firm booking and subject to our usual terms and conditions above.

In the event a performance is cancelled part way through customers will be given the option of returning to see the production on an alternative day or credit on their account. Shakespeare North Playhouse can not be held responsible for any resulting costs you may incur for travel, accommodation or any other related goods or service or other compensation.

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.

Transaction fees will not be refunded.

Refunds can not be claimed if you are unable to attend an event due to factors outside of Shakespeare North Playhouse’s control, for example illness of the customer or a member of their party, bad weather or  travel strikes.

Ticket Protection is available at the point of purchase.

Shakespeare North Playhouse offer ticket exchanges to an alternative performance of the same production where possible. Ticket exchanges can not be actioned between different events.

An exchange fee will be charged. This fee is £3 per booking.

If the tickets you are exchanging to are of a higher value the difference will need to be settled.

We offer Ticket Protection via Secure My Booking for every ticket booked. This is made available at the same time that you purchase your tickets or you can add this on up to 14 days after your original purchase.

If you have ticket protection and would like to apply for a refund via Secure my booking please check the terms to see if you are eligible, and then apply here.

There is a transaction fee of £3 per order.

The transaction fee applies per order not per ticket. For example, if you purchase six tickets, you only pay one transaction fee.

This fee is applied to both printed and e-tickets. The fee is applied to all booking methods (in person, phone and online).

The transaction fee covers the costs associated with processing orders.

Transaction fees will not be refunded.

Reservations cannot be made within 6 weeks of the performance date. If the booking is within six weeks of the performance full payment must be provided at the point of purchase.

If the booking is within the six week window Shakespeare North Playhouse, at their discretion, may offer a reservation for a 72 hour period to allow you to make payment on a large booking via BACs or cheque.

You will be notified of the date and time your reservation expires. If you have not made payment before this expiry the reservation will be released and the held tickets will return for public sale.

Reservations can only be made for bookings of 10 or more persons.

The payment deadline for reservations is 4 weeks before the booked performance. If the reservation is for a school and this falls in school holidays an alternative deadline will be discussed and agreed.

Photography, video and sound recording of performances is strictly forbidden. Anyone found to be recording a performance may be asked to leave.

The use of mobile phones is not permitted during performances.

We are working hard to ensure that your theatregoing experience is as COVID-safe and as comfortable as possible. You will find specific information about the measures we’re implementing for forthcoming shows and workshops on each event’s webpage.

When a performance has the potential to sell out, we bring in dynamic pricing for some performances. It’s an approach that is similar to airline ticket prices which change according to demand. Some ticket prices on certain performances therefore may increase if the demand is enough, so it’s always best to book early for popular shows.
