The admin fee contributes to the cost of delivering the tickets, whether it is through the post, electronically or collecting at the venue. The admin fee also contributes to other operational costs and overheads associated with ticket fulfilment e.g. ticket stock administration and inventory control, ticket stock/stationery, collection facilities and postage and/or packaging costs.
Children aged 0-4 are free every day but should sit on an adult’s lap in The Kitchen theatre, if a seat is required then please purchase in advance or from the Customer Services Tent on the day. Children aged 5-15 are charged at the child rate (£11.70). Please click here for all ticket prices.
