Tickets sales FAQ

I would like to give somebody tickets to a performance as a present. Can I buy and pay for tickets for EDS productions in advance?

Unfortunately we have no facility for buying tickets in advance, but you can reserve tickets and collect and pay for them on the night of the performance. You can also pay for tickets and have another person collect them if you prefer.

What happens to my reserved tickets if I do not collect them on time?

If the performance is not sold out we will usually hold on to your tickets. If it is sold out and we do not know you are definitely coming, your tickets may be sold to someone else. We can only guarantee reservations until 20 minutes before the performance.

Do I need to show my order confirmation email to collect the tickets?

We do not need to see your order confirmation when you collect tickets, we just need to know the name of the person the tickets are reserved for. If the tickets have already been paid for, you may be asked to show an identity card to collect these tickets.

Yes, we will ask to see proof of status for reduced price tickets. If you are collecting reduced price tickets for another person, please also bring their proof of status. We accept the following:

How can I change the type of tickets I reserved?

Tickets that have already been collected and paid for are non-refundable. However, they can be returned subject to the following conditions:

In such cases we will refund the full value of the returned ticket. If we are unable to resell your ticket we will unfortunately not be able to offer you a refund, however, we would be pleased to exchange it for a ticket for another performamce of the same production.

The only exception is for teachers accompanying school groups of 11 or more pupils who are entitled to purchase tickets at the reduced rate if the tickets are ordered in advance. The discount applies to one teacher per group of between 11 and 20 pupils.

Yes, the tickets can be collected individually, although we do prefer them to be collected together if possible.
