- Tickets, including hospitality packages, for all events are non-refundable once purchased. It is possible to add refund protection at the point of purchase from our partner Booking Protect. By adding refund protection, you or anybody in your party will be able to claim back a full refund should you be unable to attend the booked event due to reasons outside of your control. This includes things such as accident, injury or illness. A full list of terms and conditions can be found here: https://www.lwtheatres.co.uk/refund-protection

An exchange fee of £3 per ticket will apply. Tickets for one-off concerts or events are non-exchangeable. Please visit our FAQs page to find out more information.
- Every member of the audience, regardless of age, must be in possession of a valid ticket in order to gain entry to the theatre.

E-Ticket: this will take the form of a pdf attachment to an email which will contain all the ticket information and barcode that will grant access to the venue.

In such circumstances, The Company will not be under any obligation to offer a refund and such person may be liable to legal action.
- If one person buys multiple tickets, the provision by the purchaser of the tickets to their guests will not constitute a breach of the transfer restrictions under these terms and conditions (provided that the provision of tickets to guests is not made for commercial gain). However, the purchaser agrees that by purchasing tickets, they have agreed to these terms and conditions on behalf of themselves and their guests and the purchaser shall at all times be responsible for their guests’ compliance with these terms and conditions.
