What does it mean if the event is described as having unreserved seating?

If an event has unreserved seating then this means that the seats will usually be allocated on a first come first serve basis by the event organiser.

We will always try where we can to accommodate changes to bookings. However changes to dates and seating depend on availability and are down to the discretion of the event organiser.

Refunds, Delivery and Postage

I have changed my mind, can I get a refund?

Obtaining a refund for a purchase is made at the discretion of the supplier. If you do require a refund please get in touch and we will contact the supplier for you.

My debit card has expired, can I still get a refund?

On the advice of our bank, we only refund the card that was originally used to pay – this is to make sure that the refund goes to the right place and avoids any problems or discrepancies. Most of the time, if you've had a replacement card for the same account the refund will go into your account anyway and you won't need to do anything.

If your account is closed or you've had a replacement card and the refund still isn't appearing in your account after 10 working days, please contact the card issuer. They'll be holding the funds for you and will be able to arrange a transfer to your new account.

My refund is not showing on my bank statement, what should I do?

If you cannot see your refund please contact us so we can clarify the status of your refund.

Which method of delivery is used?

The delivery method of products are decided by the supplier. This can vary from Royal Mail, Courier or Tracked Courier. This is clearly communicated on the product detail page before you purchase.

Can I amend the delivery address after I have made my purchase?

If you would like to amend the delivery please contact us as soon as possible so we can pass the new details onto the supplier. We cannot promise it will always be possible to amend this however.

Do I need to pay for postage?

If payment for postage is required this will be clearly communicated on the product detail page and on your Order Summary as you go through the checkout process. The cost of postage depends on the item that you are purchasing. The postage will either be free, a flat fee or per item.

The event I bought tickets for has been cancelled what do I do?

If an event has been cancelled by the event organiser we will automatically organise a full refund for you.
