Latecomers Policy

We request latecomers to await admission to the auditorium until a suitable break. Some performances will have a no latecomers policy, please check Front of House signage on the day of the performance.


Once payment has been received all tickets are non-refundable.


We will exchange tickets for another performance for the same production on a different date/time if returned to the Box Office 48 hours before the original performance date. There is an administration charge of £1 per ticket for exchanges. Please note that we can only action an exchange once we are in receipt of the original ticket.


If a performance is sold out we can endeavour to sell any returned tickets to the waiting list for that specific performance only. Tickets need to be returned to the Box Office 48 hours before the performance. Refunds will be issued in form of a credit to use against the purchases for future shows. Credits are valid for one year from the date of issue. A re-sale will incur a charge of £1 administration fee per ticket. We cannot guarantee re-sales.

The Lyric reserves the right to refuse the ticket holder admission to a performance if the ticket has been sold for commercial gain.
