Ticket prices do not include booking fees that are applied by the ticketing agent. Running a ticket agency costs money – (premises, IT, staff, communication, credit card commission etc). A fee is calculated as a percentage of the price of each ticket and added by agents on top of a ticket’s face value to cover both their costs of sale and as a charge for the service provided.

‘Face Value’ is the basic price printed on a ticket set by the promoter before the addition of any booking fees, service charges or other extra costs have been added (e.g. for mailing).

Children below the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.
