Booking Fees - Our Terms & Conditions
• To make our booking fees as transparent as possible and to meet the requirements of relevant legislation, the £1 per ticket booking fee is built into our prices, so the price you see is the price you pay.
• An additional £1 is payable if you would like your tickets posted.
Why do we charge a booking fee?
Booking fees cover the cost of running the box office, bank charges, computer technology and tickets, ensuring that our customers enjoy the best possible customer service.
•All tickets and booking fees are non-refundable.
Tickets can only be offered for re-sale when an event is sold out. A credit voucher will be issued and the booking fee retained by Hertford Theatre.
Original tickets must be returned to the Box Office at least 24 hours before the performance. To put tickets up for resale please contact the Box Office on 01992 531500.
• Tickets may be exchanged for an alternative performance of the same production for a fee of £1 per ticket. For changes to a more expensive performance, the customer will be charged the difference.
For changes to a cheaper performance, no refund will be given.
Original tickets must be returned to the Box Office before any exchange and at least 24 hours before the original performance. This also applied to seat changes.
• If you have not paid for your tickets to be posted, please show your email confirmation to the Box Office to collect your tickets, at least 15 minutes before the start of the event, with your proof of concession (if applicable).
• In the event of a performance being cancelled ticket holders can book for an alternative performance of the same show/film (subject to availability) up to the seat value on the ticket. Alternatively we can issue the ticket holder with a credit voucher for the value of the original tickets or a refund for the value of the original tickets.
• Once tickets are collected or posted to the ticket holder Hertford Theatre cannot be held liable for any tickets that are lost or stolen. If you have lost your tickets, these can be reprinted at a charge of £1 per ticket.
• Management reserves the right to refuse admission.
• Latecomers may be admitted to the auditorium at a suitable break in performance.
• Photography, video and sound recording, smoking, vaping and the use of mobile phones and pagers in the auditorium are strictly prohibited.
• Only refreshments bought in the cafe/bar are allowed in the auditorium and we request that you respect performers and other patrons when consuming refreshments during an event.
• The event promoter may record or take photographs of performances. However, if it does so, customers will be informed before the performance.
Concessions & Ticket Prices
• Reduced price tickets may be available on some performances and only where stated. Age restrictions may apply. You must select the most appropriate ticket when booking online as refunds are not available. Valid concession eligibility is required for all bookings.
