Group bookings (over eight tickets):

We operate a group booking policy aimed at protecting potential customers from ticket touting, ticket scams and re-selling of tickets at an inflated price.

Purchases of up to eight tickets can be made on our internet sales pages. The purchase of over eight tickets constitutes a group booking (even if purchased in separate transactions). If you wish to book nine or more tickets, please contact the box office on 03000 680400 or e-mail

As part of this policy, we ask customers booking nine or more tickets to sign a disclaimer regarding the use of their tickets. This is designed to prevent purchase by parties intending to re-sell the tickets for profit (prohibited in point 15 of our Terms and Conditions). 

We reserve the right to contact any customer to discuss their purchase and ensure that our booking policy and terms and conditions are adhered to.

We are unable to offer any group discounts.
