Event

Tickets are sold subject to the Promoter’s and the Management’s right to alter or vary the published Event programme where reasonably necessary.

It is Your responsibility to ascertain whether an Event has been cancelled or re-scheduled and the date and time of any re-scheduled Event. Where an Event is cancelled or re-scheduled, the Management will use its reasonable endeavours to notify You using the details You provided at the time of booking. The Management does not guarantee that You will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the Event. It is Your responsibility to inform the point of sale from where you bought the ticket of any change to the contact address, telephone number or email address You provided at the time of booking.

Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded unless the performance is cancelled, rescheduled or where there is a material change to the Event. A ‘material’ change is a change which, in the Management’s reasonable opinion, makes the Event materially different to the Event that any purchaser of a Ticket could reasonably expect.  The use of understudies shall not be a material change.

Where an Event is cancelled, rescheduled or where there is a material change to the programme of the Event, You will be entitled to claim a refund from the Management. The refund for Tickets equals the face value of the Tickets purchased plus the relevant per Ticket booking fee but excludes any transaction fees.  Personal arrangements including travel, subsistence and accommodation relating to the Event which have been arranged by You are at Your own risk and the Management or Promoter shall not be liable for any loss of enjoyment or wasted expenditure beyond the Ticket price and relevant booking fee (excluding any transaction fees).

In order to claim Your refund, where an Event is cancelled, please apply in writing to the point of sale from where you bought the ticket, enclosing Your complete unused Tickets within 1 month from the date of the Event. Where there is a material change to the programme of the Event, You must bring this to your point of sale's attention as soon as possible upon becoming aware of such change in good time before the Event. Where an Event is rescheduled, You must apply in writing to your point of sale, enclosing Your complete unused Tickets in good time before the date of the rescheduled Event.  The Management and/or the point of sale will not make any refund if Tickets and/or the relevant notification are not received by the point of sale within the above timeframes. Refunds will only be made to the person who purchased the Tickets.

 

Resale

Tickets are personal revocable licences and shall at all times remain the property of the Management and subject to these Terms and Conditions.  If a Ticket is re-sold, transferred or advertised for profit or commercial gain by anyone other than the Management, Promoter, or an authorised sub-agent, it will be void and You will be refused entry to, or ejected from, the Venue without refund. You may not re-sell or transfer a Ticket if You are doing so in the course of business. You are deemed to be selling or transferring in the course of business if the Management reasonably believes that You are doing so. The Management may reasonably consider that a Ticket is being resold in the course of business including without limitation: if You frequently advertise or offer tickets for resale; or where the Management reasonably considers that a Ticket offered for resale has originally been purchased with the specific intention of offering it for resale for profit and with no intention of You attending the Event.  If You offer a Ticket for sale for profit on an authorised Ticket exchange before the Event the Management may consider it to be a business transaction by taking other factors into consideration, including, without limitation: the number of tickets being sold by You; any evidence that You or the person You bought the Ticket for cannot attend the Event for genuine reasons; and whether any third party business not authorised by the Management will benefit financially from the resale of the Ticket. Re-selling a Ticket for profit means any re-sale that seeks a price higher than the face value of the Ticket and the relevant booking and/or handling fee that You paid for the Ticket.

 

Liability

Tickets obtained in breach of these Terms and Conditions shall be null and void and the Management may refuse admission to or eject You from the Venue. Any person seeking to use a void Ticket in order to gain or provide entry to an Event will be considered to be a trespasser and will be ejected and liable to legal action. Void Tickets are non-refundable.

The Management reserves the right to refuse You entry to and/or eject You from the Event and/or Venue in reasonable circumstances including without limitation for health and safety or licensing reasons; if You behave in a manner which has or is likely to affect the enjoyment of other persons at the Event; if You use threatening, abusive or insulting words or mannerisms; if, in the Management’s reasonable opinion, You are acting under the influence of alcohol or drugs; if You fail, when required, to produce proof of identity or age; if You refuse to comply with the Management’s security searches; if You breach these Terms; or if Your Ticket is void.

Tickets may be restricted to a maximum number per person. Any such restriction will be notified to You at the time of purchase.  Tickets purchased in excess of this limit may be cancelled by the Management without prior notice, unless Your purchase of an excess was due to Management's error.

For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, “Force Majeure” means any cause beyond Management’s control including, without limitation, act of God, war, insurrection, riot, civil disturbances, acts of terrorism, fire, explosion, flood, royal mourning, national mourning, theft of essential equipment, malicious damage, strike, lock out, weather, third party injunction, national defence requirements, acts or regulations of national or local governments. The Management will not be liable to You for failure to perform any obligation under these Terms and Conditions to the extent that the failure is caused by or due to Force Majeure.

You agree that the Management, its employees and agents will not be liable for any loss, injury or damage to any person (including Yourself) or property however caused (including by the Management or its servants or agents): (a) in any circumstances where there is no breach of a legal duty of care owed by the Management or any of its servants or agents; (b) in circumstances where such loss or damage is not a reasonably foreseeable result of any such breach (save for death or personal injury as a result of a breach of a legal duty of care owed by the Management, its servants or agents); or (c) to the extent that any increase in any loss or damage results from breach by You of any of these Terms and Conditions.

Queries or Complaints

If you have any queries or complaints regarding your purchase, contact us, by emailing [email protected] quoting your name, order number, Event name and date and time of Event.

If before or during the Event You have a complaint in relation to the Event (including without limitation in relation to Your ability to view the Event), please contact Us or a steward promptly since complaints are very difficult to deal with after the Event.

Because we sell tickets on behalf of promoters, we may need to contact them for more information before responding to your complaint. Some complaints can take up to 28 days to resolve, but we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Should a dispute arise, we shall use our reasonable endeavours to consult or negotiate and attempt to reach a settlement satisfactory to you, us and the Promoter of the Event.

Although this does not restrict your rights to pursue court proceedings, if we are unable to settle any dispute by negotiation within 28 days, you and we may attempt to settle it by mediation. To initiate a mediation a party must give written notice to the other parties to the dispute requesting a mediation. The mediation shall be conducted in accordance with the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers Code of Practice and Dispute Resolution Procedure current at the date of the referral which sets out the procedures to be adopted, the process of selection of the mediator and the costs involved, and which terms are deemed incorporated into this agreement.

As an online trader, pursuant to European Union legislation, Nederlander Theatres also draws your attention to the European Commission's Online Dispute Resolution platform Here, where you can access for further information about online dispute resolution.
