We do not offer hires based on splits or percentages of ticket sales.
We work on straight hires, as this is easier for all parties.



Payment for your engagement can be made in full, or using the method below:

On receipt of a deposit and return of the theatre's contract, your booking will be secure, your tickets will be printed and will go on sale from the date you specify.
The balance of your hire fee will be taken from your ticket sales, and the remaining amount returned to you within 28 days of the final performance.
Should your ticket sales not cover your hire fee 7 days prior to your engagement, the remaining balance would be required before your show get-in.


TICKETS (see Hire Rate – 2, full show, production, event)
Ticket printing, and ticket sales from our Box Office are included in the price of your hire. The Theatre charges a sales commission of £0.50 per ticket. It is up to The Company whether this is added to their ticket price (ie. An £8.00 ticket becomes £8.50), or the cost met by The Company.

Companies CANNOT print or produce their own tickets unless discussed
with the theatre beforehand.

ALL ticket sales must pass through The Theatre’s Box Office unless discussed.
If The Company wishes to distribute tickets, these tickets must be
purchased from the Box Office.
Blocks of tickets will be reserved, and a seating plan given to The Company.
The Company can then take orders for tickets based on the block of seats they have reserved.
The Company then return these orders to The Theatre’s Box Office, along with any ticket revenue, to collect the tickets required.
When taking orders for tickets, The Company MUST make note of
the price of the tickets ordered.

These conditions enable The Theatre to generate an accurate reconciliation sheet of your ticket sales at the end of your engagement.

The Theatre does not provide an online booking service at present
. If The Company wishes to sell tickets online, this must be discussed with The Theatre,
and organised/operated by The Company themselves.


Our Box Office opening times are as follows:
Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays between 11.00am and 5.30pm
(or until curtain up on a performance night).

For performance days that fall on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Sunday, our Box Office will be open for two hours prior to the start of the performance.

The Theatre and Box Office are closed to the public:
Bank Holidays, the first two weeks in January, Easter weekend,

Please bear these closures in mind when booking your performance with us.
