STUDENTS Subject to availability you may claim a full price ticket at a reduced rate as stated in the brochure. This special concessionary rate can only be claimed 3 days before the show opens. REASONABLE BEHAVIOUR We reserve the right to refuse admission or eject a ticket holder for behaviour likely to cause damage, injury or nuisance, or failure to comply with reasonable requests. On occasion we may have to conduct security searches to ensure safety of customers. TICKET RESALE/EXCHANGE/ REPRINT To protect everyone from ticket touts, we don’t allow the resale of our tickets for private commercial gain. Tickets are sold for use by the buyer and his and her party. We can cancel tickets if there’s any breach of this condition, and refuse entry without refund. For your own peace of mind, please only buy from official outlets - which is directly from The Palace Theatre or from one of our approved agents. It is general practice that tickets are not exchanged or money refunded. However if patrons fnd that they are unable to use their tickets the Box Offce will endeavour to resell them (although this cannot be guaranteed) they must be returned at least three days before the performance. The resale value may not total the amount you paid for your tickets originally. Tickets are put up for resale at your own risk. There is an administration charge for this service of £2.00 which will be deducted from the resale value. We will also exchange unwanted tickets on your behalf, for the same show if there is another date to choose from. Exchanges are subject to ticket availability and an administration charge of £2.00 per seat will be made to exchange tickets. Reprinting tickets will be charged at £1.00 per ticket. CHILDREN All children over 12 months of age must have a paid for seat, and will only be admitted to specified children’s shows and the pantomime. Parents with babes in arms under 12 months will only be admitted to specified children’s shows and the pantomime and must report to the Box Office on arrival. We ask that you respect the enjoyment of other patrons and in the event of restlessness request that you take the child from the auditorium. Unaccompanied children attending shows at the Palace are not the responsibility of the theatre and parents leave children at their own risk. DATA PROTECTION
