All theatre-based events include an admin fee to cover booking fees and postage, therefore the price on your ticket may differ from that advertised by Spice.
Regrettably, we are unable to refund any monies unless we can re-sell your ticket as box offices do not operate a returns policy.
We are rarely able to secure groups discounts on tickets as most of our theatre nights take place on a Friday or Saturday night when discounts are not available.
We also book some of the big names in entertainment, who do not offer a discount.
If you are running late, your ticket will be left at the Box Office. Latecomers may not be admitted until a suitable break in the performance.
