4.1 Tickets you purchase are for personal use. You and your party must not re-sell or transfer (or seek to re-sell or transfer) the tickets in breach of the applicable terms.

4.6 An order for tickets is not complete until accepted by us. We try to ensure all prices are accurate but errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of tickets you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and we may either cancel the order (in which case you will be refunded the ticket price and any booking, transaction or supplementary fees you have paid) or give you the option of confirming your order at the correct price.
4.7 Where necessary, specific seats will be allocated to you. We have the right to change these seats to others of equal value.
4.8 On rare occasions the show or event may be filmed or recorded. Buying a ticket affirms your consent to the filming and sound recording of yourself as a member of the audience.

(b) necessary for reasons of identification or;
(c) your tickets are lost in the post or;

We cannot usually specify the dates on which you will receive tickets. If you do not inform us of the non-receipt of tickets within a reasonable time (in any event at least 72 hours before the event) we will have no liability to you.
4.12 If tickets sent by post are returned to us marked “addressee gone away”, "addressee unknown" or similar words indicating that you do not reside at the address, your order may be cancelled and the ticket price and any supplementary charges (but not the booking fee or transaction fee) refunded, or your order may be made available for collection at the box office.

Cancellation Rights and Refunds
4.15 Tickets cannot be transferred, exchanged, or refunded once purchased other than for the reasons set out in these terms and conditions.

Cancellation, change or postponement of an event
4.18 Decisions to change or cancel events are the responsibility of the Promoter. Holding Absence cannot guarantee to inform you of any change or cancellation of any event or be held responsible for refunds or for any resulting costs you may incur for travel, accommodation, any other related goods or service or other compensation.
4.19 You should always check that an event is going ahead at the scheduled date, time and venue.

4.21 If an event is rescheduled, changed or moved, the Promoter will usually give you the option of either retaining or exchanging your tickets for the new date/location, or alternatively claiming a refund. If an event is cancelled by the Promoter, you will normally be offered a refund. Please note that the Booking Fee and any Transaction Fees are not refundable in these circumstances.
4.22 If for any reason you are entitled to a refund, in most cases you must return any tickets you have:
(a) follow the refund instructions otherwise you may not receive a refund. If these require you to return the tickets, do so promptly and within the timeframe communicated to you.
(b) tickets should be returned (with copy of the email or letter entitling you to a refund, or a covering note containing your order reference number and contact information) to the specified address by registered post (or an equivalent secure postal method). Please note that the return postage cost is non-refundable.

The venue or the Promoter will have rights to refuse admission or eject you in certain circumstances and these are likely to include if you are involved with abusive, threatening, drunken or other anti-social behaviour, or carry offensive weapons or illegal or prohibited substances or make unauthorized audio, video or photographic recordings. There will often also be rules restricting or preventing the admission of latecomers.

This will generally include age restrictions, ticket types etc. Information on where you can find full details of relevant terms, conditions or rules will be available from the Promoter or venue operator via the box office or their website.
