INFORMATION ABOUT US

We are a partnership with our offices at 42 Cranbourn Street, London WC2H 7AN, where
details of our partners may be inspected. Our VAT number is 625832632.
We are members of STAR – The Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers.
We sell Tickets on behalf of the management of theatres and other venues (Venue(s)).
All tickets are sold subject to the rules and regulations of the Venue, full details
of which are available from the relevant Show's Venue. Please check carefully the
details of a Show before making a booking.
Please note that some Venue's policies may prohibit us from issuing exchanges or
refunds after a Ticket has been purchased, or from issuing duplicates for lost,
stolen or damaged Tickets.
HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED
When you make a booking for Tickets via our website, your booking constitutes an
offer to us to buy Tickets.
All bookings are subject to acceptance by us. Once we have checked your booking
form and that you have sufficient funds to cover the total cost of the Tickets,
we will send you an email confirmation that your booking has been accepted (the
Booking Confirmation) and charge your credit or debit card accordingly. The
contract (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Booking Confirmation.
If there is a problem relating to your booking you will be notified by email.
You are responsible for ensuring that your details are correct in your booking,
and for letting us know immediately if there are any changes to your details once
your booking has been confirmed.
Where you are making a booking on behalf of a number of people, you accept these
terms and conditions on behalf of all members of your party.
We reserve the right to restrict the number of Tickets ordered.

orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Booking Confirmation, except
in the case of obvious error.
TICKET COLLECTION OR DISPATCH
We will normally dispatch Tickets by first class post to the address you give us
when you make a booking. We aim to send Tickets as soon as possible, usually within
7 days, but please allow as much time as possible for the arrival of your Tickets.

do not have your Ticket with you.
All Tickets are non-transferrable. If any Ticket is resold or transferred for commercial
gain by anyone other than us, it will become invalid and the holder will be refused
admission to a Show.
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS
Please note that the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 'cooling
off' periods do not apply to the sale of tickets. As such, you have no general right
to withdraw from the Contract, whether you are a consumer or not. This clause does
not affect your statutory rights.
We regret, therefore, that you cannot exchange Tickets or request a refund after
the Show has been cancelled or postponed or the location of the Show is changed
by the Venue;
we have been negligent or are in breach of contract.
Whilst we will use all reasonable endeavours to contact you (either by telephone
or by email) to inform you of any cancellation, postponement or other changes to
a Show, the responsibility lies with you to check on the day of the Show in the
press or by telephoning us or the Venue.
If, a Show is cancelled or postponed due to unavoidable circumstances we will reimburse
the full cost of the Tickets, including any delivery, postage, service or handling
charges you have paid to us.
If the above paragraph applies you must return your Tickets to us, preferably using
secure mail. Requests for refunds will usually be allowed up to one week prior to
the changed or postponed Show and within 28 days of any cancelled Show.
When you return Tickets to us and you are due a refund, we will usually process
the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the
day we confirmed to you via email that you were entitled to a refund.
We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally
used by you to pay for your purchase.

behaviour likely to cause damage, nuisance or injury shall entitle the Venue to

notice due to events beyond its reasonable control without any obligation to provide
any Ticket refund or exchange.
