Booking Tickets


This year we are introducing a new online booking system.  This is incorporated into our own website so, unlike in previous years, when booking tickets you will remain on our website and you will be able to freely browse the event listings without losing the contents of your shopping ‘cart’.  On some screens the ‘continue’ or ‘pay now’ buttons may be hidden off the bottom of the screen – please scroll down if you can’t see one.

With changes to legislation due (GDPR) and also repeated problems in previous years with people forgetting passwords and login details, we will not be requiring purchasers to create user accounts in order to buy tickets online.  Online purchasers will be required to provide a valid email address in order for us to send the booking confirmations and tickets.  Unless you positively choose to have this address added to our mailing list, we will only use this email address for the purpose of processing your booking.

If you book online you will normally have a link to your tickets emailed to you so you can print them at home.  All tickets have a unique identifier so please don’t be tempted to print twice as our stewards will know who is expected to attend. If you don’t have a printer you can choose to have them printed in our box office for collection (no charge).  There is also an option for us to print and post tickets to you, for which we charge a postage and handling fee.  Please allow 4 working days for them to arrive if you select this option.

Stripe logoCard payments are being handled by Stripe and no card details are stored on our website.  You can opt to allow Stripe to store card details for your convenience for future purchases.
