    COVID-19 TICKET GUARANTEE: Please be reassured that if we are required to reschedule the event due to changing Government regulations around Covid-19 your ticket will remain valid for the rescheduled dates. In the unlikely event that we have to cancel the event due to Covid-19 the face value of your ticket will be automatically refunded within 14 days.

    For information about the changes we’ve made in light of recent events please read our safety section below.

    • Do I need to print my tickets? You do not need to print your tickets, even if you have purchased a 'Print At Home' ticket. Our ticket scanners can read the barcodes of tickets stored on your phone as well as physical tickets.
    • I haven’t received an email with my tickets on them, what should I do? First, check your spam! If you have no luck there contact your ticket provider directly (SEE Tickets are our primary provider). Have ready all of your booking information and they will be able to send you through your tickets.
    • Is there an age limit? Yes. The festival has an age limit of 18+. You may be refused entry if our staff think you are under 18, so please bring ID if you’re concerned. This age policy applies to babes-in-arms too. We do not offer refunds to ticket-holders who are denied entry. Apologies to all you younger comedy fans out there!
    • You’re sold out! Where can I apply for returns? Check our facebook page. Anyone who can’t make it to a show may try to pass on their tickets via our facebook page. Do not buy tickets from external sources as they may not be accepted on the door.
    • I need to organise the babysitter - what exact time is my favourite comedian performing? We do not give out specific timings of comedians. Your tickets however will provide information on the event open and show start times, we estimate that our multi-bill shows last approximately 100 minutes.
    • Can I bring my dog / cat / parrot? Unfortunately not. Assistance animals are welcome, but please contact ahead of your show to organise.
    • I have booked for more than one show in a day - must I leave the audience arena in between my shows? Yes, so that we can carry out our enhanced hygiene protocols we must empty the audience arena between shows. Thanks in advance for your understanding. If you are one of our accessibility ticket holders please speak with a member of our team when you arrive and they will be able to assist.
    • I’m running late, is this a problem? To assist our new socially-distanced event space we ask you to please check your tickets and allow yourself plenty of time. Latecomers will be guided to their seating plots by our PPE-adorned staff.
    • Can I bring a picnic? Afraid not. We ask that you do not try and bring food or drink into the event, if you do you will be asked to leave it outside. But worry not, our snazzy new drink & snack bundles are on hand to keep your taste buds as tickled as your sides.
    • Cash or card? We are operating a cashless site this year. All walk-up ticket bookings must be made online via our website and orders for additional drinks and snacks during the show will be managed via our delivery partner app.
