Upon electronic receipt of the Booking Form, the Venue will check that you have correctly completed all parts of the Booking Form and confirm that you have sufficient funds to cover the total cost of the booking. Upon confirmation of these details, the Venue will then charge your credit or debit card accordingly and send you a Confirmation by e-mail which shall constitute its acceptance of your booking. If the Venue receives a prompt notification that the Confirmation was not delivered successfully, then the Venue will use reasonable endeavours to notify you of your booking by other means.

The prices and availability of the Tickets are specified on the Venue’s website. These details are based on the best available information but the Venue is not obliged to conclude any Contract on these terms.
