Do you charge a booking fee on tickets?

I can’t come to the performance, will you refund my tickets?

All sales are non-refundable and non-exchangeable except when an event is cancelled. We can resell unwanted tickets, however The Castle’s unsold tickets take priority and a charge of £1 per ticket (to a maximum of £5) will be charged for tickets resold on your behalf.

Who can buy your concession tickets?

We offer a range of concession discounts for selected shows throughout the season, including Under 16s, students, over 60s, Job Seekers and Disabled Patrons. Discounts and special offers (i.e Multibuys, Family Tickets or Promo Codes) are subject to availability. Not all discounts are available on all shows.

Do you offer family discounts?

We aim to offer family discounts on a wide range of our children and family events throughout the season. Unless stated otherwise, a family ticket is applicable for 4 tickets, of which 1 must be a child.

Can you post my tickets to me?

Yes, tickets can be posted to you for a cost of £1.00. If you choose, we can hold your tickets at the Box Office for you to collect for free. A free Print @ Home option is available on selected performances. 

Do you sell and accept theatre tokens?

Until further notice, we cannot accept or sell National Theatre Tokens but we will continue to offer our own Castle Theatre vouchers. 

Where can I find the running times for shows?

Where known, running times are listed on individual event pages.

I’m running late, can I still watch the show?

Our doors usually open 30 minutes before the start time of an event, and we recommend people aim to arrive early and enjoy a drink in our bar area. However, if you are late our stewards will aim to seat you as quickly as possible in a suitable break in the performance.
