Our tickets are non-refundable; however, we are happy to exchange tickets for another performance of the same production, subject to availability, up to 48 hours before the performance. Alternatively, we will try and resell your tickets (after all other tickets have been sold). We charge £2.50 per ticket to exchange or re-sell.
