Reserve List

If an event is sold out, you may like to put yourself on the reserve list at the box office. Quite often we will be able to get a ticket for you closer to the date. We will do our best but it isn't guaranteed. If you would like to go on the reserve list, for the event you would like to see, please call the box office on 0845 5 218 218 or you can email 

We may contact you to offer you tickets and offers for other events going on during the festival.
