Refunding tickets for cancelled shows

Where tickets have been sold through our Booking Office on behalf of a hirer, and the show is subsequently cancelled, the hirer shall bear the cost of refunding ticketholders via the Box Office standard refund procedures. This charge is currently £2+ VAT per seat sold. In addition to any credit card charges incurred in the sale/refund. A Box Office Sales Report will be provided at the time of cancellation to verify the sales position at that time. Hirers who have registered with the Booking Office as an 'Agent' and received Agency tickets are responsible for those refunds back to purchasers at their own cost and arrangements.

Access for customers

The venue is fully accessible both backstage and front of house and every effort is made to ensure we are accessible to all. Please note free Carer seats are offered to those attending in a wheelchair and we welcome advance discussion of performer's or customer's needs relating to access to the venue. The free Carer seat will be offered for all promotions at the venue in line with the venues policy (agreed by Solihull Carer's Service - a Carer's card is required).

If the hirer sells any of their tickets and the customer has specific access requirements (e.g. requires wheelchair space) the Box Office must be informed to ensure the customer’s needs are catered for when they attend the event.
