Cookies are small text files that are automatically placed onto your device by some websites that you visit. They are widely used to allow a website to function as well as to provide website operators with information on how the site is being used.

Our session cookies are set by our website and are required to perform basic functionality, such as retaining your selected tickets in the basket. These we consider necessary to the working of our website. If these are disabled then various functionality on the site will not work as you might expect. There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.
Some of the functionality that session cookies on our website provide:
- Making our shopping basket and checkout work
- Determining if you are logged in or not

Cookies for Site Analytics and Performance
We use Google Analytics to understand how the site is being used in order to improve your experience – this data is all anonymous, and helps us to continuously improve our website.
These cookies compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using, how long they spend on the site, what page they look at, for example. These analytics programs also tell us on an anonymous basis how people reached this site (from a search engine, for example) and whether they have been here before.
You can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Third Party Cookies
These cookies may be set through our website by other companies. Data may be collected by these companies that enable them to serve up adverts on other sites that are relevant to your interests.
We host the Facebook Pixel on our site. This pixel enables us to track users (anonymous to us) once they click on one of our Facebook and Instagram adverts. This helps us see how people engage with the content on our website and if they purchase a ticket as a result of clicking on an ad.
Whilst it is not possible for a Facebook or Instagram user to entirely opt-out of adverts on the platform itself, you can change what types of adverts you see and the information these social media platforms use to target you with adverts.
You may still see adverts from us on Facebook or Instagram after you change your preferences if you sit within some of Facebook’s anonymised interest based groups.
