When you book tickets you will receive two emails from us. The first will be a confirmation of your booking – this is not your ticket.
Your e-tickets will be sent in a separate email soon after. This will include a barcode which you will need when you arrive for your performance. The e-ticket can be printed and shown when you arrive at the theatre for your booked event or can be shown on an electronic device such as a smartphone or iPad. You can log into your account on our website at any time and view your booking and access your e-ticket. You can also update your contact details, payment cards and contact preferences.
PRE-PAID CAR PARK
We are continuing with the ability to pre-pay for car parking in the Greene King car park for evening and weekend performances. We recommend that you book these here when you book your show tickets but pay-on-arrival will also be available. The rear entrance to the theatre has easy access from the car park and is well signposted. Please note, this route does have some steps. Those will access needs can be dropped off at the front of the theatre prior to parking.
The financial stability of the theatre relies on the support of our audiences in the form of ticket sales. It is important for us to protect ourselves, our visiting companies and the livelihood of our actors, technicians, production, sound and lighting crews so please be aware of our ticket return policy.
SCHOOLS & LARGE GROUPS
Schools and large group bookings can be held on reservation while arrangements/number are confirmed. The booking will be confirmed once payment is received. Once payment is received, the booking will be considered confirmed.
A confirmed booking can be amended to reflect small changes in attendance but cannot be cancelled after this point.
Pantomime Cancellations: School pantomime reservations will be held until 23 October. Confirmation of numbers will be required at this point and once received your invoice will be issued. Payment terms are 30 days. Once payment is received your booking is confirmed and your seating plan will be provided. Once payment is received and the booking confirmed, small adjustments in numbers will be accommodated where availability allows. Due to the size of school pantomime bookings, confirmed bookings cannot be cancelled or refunded.

This can be taken in the form of theatre credit (which can be used against any future production at Theatre Royal or as payment for Theatre Royal workshops within 2 years of the date of issue), a refund to the original payment card or donated back to the theatre.

We regret to inform that we are unable to look after bags or luggage during performances due to having no secure cloakroom. Therefore, for security reasons we ask audiences to avoid bringing bulky items with them. We do have a rail to the left of the Box Office where you are more than welcome to leave any coats and/or umbrellas, however, please be aware that this is not a secured area and leaving any items here is at your own risk.
Our ticket prices are subject to change as the theatre fills, so book early to secure your favourite seats at the best possible price.
To ensure the best experience for our audiences and actors on stage, often the Upper Circle and Gallery are not offered for sale until the pit and dress circle are sold. To encourage having the front of the auditorium full and to offer good seats at accessible prices, tickets in the front of the auditorium are often priced at £10.50 each.
Some seats offer a restricted view, when booking there will be an icon over the seats which you can hover over for more information.
We will do our best to seat late arrivals safely but it may be necessary to wait until the interval.
CUSTOMERS WITH ACCESS NEEDS
Wheelchair users and customers requiring assistance should contact the Box Office [email protected] and we will help you find the seat most suitable for your needs.
