The Arts Theatre aims to be accessible and welcoming to all. We have space for one wheelchair in our auditorium as standard and may be able to provide additional spaces on enquiry. Unfortunately, performances in Above the Arts are no accessible for wheelchair users. Guide dogs and hearing dogs are welcome in the auditorium, please discuss with the Box Office team when booking.

If you require a full-time carer, and are registered disabled, then we may be able to offer you a discount. As we are a receiving house, this will vary with each different production as it is up to the Producers of each different show, so please do ask.

The Arts Theatre does not have an induction loop system. As we are quite a small theatre we find most customers who usually require a loop do not need it in our house.



We do not have an advance waitlist for returns. If any tickets become available in advance (up to 2 hours before the show time), they will be instantly available on the website for sale.

Last minute return tickets (any that become available to us just prior to the show) are only available ON THE DAY AND IN PERSON. You must come to the theatre if you want your name on a list, and then be present at performance time to collect the return ticket if it becomes available. There is no guarantee that tickets will become available. We do not take phone numbers to call you as we simply do not have the facility to make calls at busy show times, you must be here to claim them.

Tickets may be exchanged for an alternative date of the same show, at an additional cost of £2 per ticket. Tickets must be exchanged no later than 48 hours before the start of the performance and this is always as the discretion of Box Office Management


The Arts Theatre reserves the right to refuse admission and request any ticket holder to leave the theatre and take any appropriate action to enforce this right.

The unauthorised use of photographic and recording equipment is prohibited. Mobile phones and any other electronic equipment must be switched off before entering the auditorium.

The Arts Theatre reserves the right to make any changes to the performance owing to unforseen or unavoidable cause.

Standard concessions, when available, are purchasable for guests over the age of 60, under the age of 16, in full time education or registered unemployed. Concessions for other guests will be advertised when applicable. Patrons who are registered disabled may be entitled to bring a free carer. Please ask at our Box Office for access seating and information.

The Arts Theatre reserves the right to cancel or abandon the performance for reasons beyond its control without notice and without being liable to pay any person compensation for damages other than a refund of the ticket price.

It is not always possible to issue duplicate tickets where there is a possibility of both the original and duplicate ticket being used, compromising the licensed capacity of the venue. Duplicates may therefore be issued at the discretion of the Box Office.

There is a £0.90 booking fee on all tickets purchased online or over the phone. This is not applicable on bookings of 10 or more tickets to a single performance. Please note the booking fee will increase to £1 per ticket for performances after 17 June 2017.

If you arrive late we appreciate that you will want to take your seats as soon as possible. To limit disturbance to fellow audience members and artists, we may ask you to wait until a suitable break in the performance and we cannot always guarantee admission.

Readmission cannot always be guaranteed but sometimes we may be able to show you to alternative seats.

Tickets are strictly non-refundable. Tickets may be exchanged for an alternative date of the same show, at an additional cost of £2 per ticket. Tickets must be exchanged no later than 48 hours before the start of the performance and this is always as the discretion of Box Office Management.

The Arts Theatre sells tickets using a dynamic pricing structure and as such the price of a particular ticket may change. The Price paid at the time of booking is final and non-negotiable.

Customer details are held in our database in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1988.

All persons entering the auditorium must have their own ticket.
