Book together, sit together
Due to social distancing requirements, seating will be allocated based on the size of the group, time of booking and venue configuration. You cannot choose or move seats and must purchase tickets with the group you wish to sit with in one transaction.
We encourage purchasing your tickets online or via phone wherever possible. Paper tickets will not be printed at any time. Tickets will be issued in a digital, PDF format and will be sent by email to the ticket purchaser, not to each individual.
Contact details are required
At the time of booking, you will be asked to provide the full name, mobile number and residential addresses of everyone in your group.
