Buying Tickets and Returns

    1. Terms and Conditions

      1. Tickets are not refundable under any circumstances other than cancellation of the event or unless the event is moved to another date which prohibits you from attending. Multi artist events may include changes in line up or venue which do not constitute material change, and therefore do not qualify for a refund.  In the event of cancellation, the full value of the ticket less any booking fees, transaction fees, postage, and insurance will be refunded.  Please note that some tickets contain a hidden booking fee, so it appears as £0 to the customer. If you would like to know this fee before purchasing, please call.  In some cases there will be a deadline for a refund / new date request which may invalidate your refund request if not responded to in time.
      2. If you pay a deposit for a ticket and miss the advertised deadline to pay the balance, your deposit will be void and no refund due.
