    September 2019

    1. BACKGROUND
      • These terms and conditions apply to tickets purchased from The Ticket Factory by all non-consumer customers buying tickets through the TTF Groups team (“Groups Customers”).
      • If you are a consumer, our consumer terms will apply to your booking and can be found at https://www.theticketfactory.com/tickets/terms-and-conditions/.
      • The Ticket Factory is the operator of the Ticket Factory website, phone line and groups bookings services (“Ticket Factory Sales Channels”) and offers tickets for sale on behalf of promoters, venues or other persons (“Ticket Suppliers”). Any ticket sold via the Ticket Factory Sales Channels is sold by The Ticket Factory on behalf of the Ticket Supplier.
      • Any purchase of a ticket from us is subject to: a) these terms and conditions, b) any special conditions and/or restrictions which we will have brought to your attention during the ticket purchase process; and c) the Ticket Supplier’s terms and conditions, which can be found on their website (you will be told who the Ticket Supplier is during the ticket purchase process, or can contact us at any time to find out).

    2. PURCHASING YOUR TICKET
      • The purchase of tickets by Groups Customers via Ticket Factory Sales Channels is subject to availability and subject to acceptance by The Ticket Factory.
      • We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of tickets displayed are correct. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some tickets on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of a ticket you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error. You will have the option of continuing with the purchase at the correct price or cancelling your order. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you of the cancellation.
      • Certain events may not be appropriate for children and an age restriction will apply. Please note that where age restrictions apply you will need to advise the ticket holders to bring proof of age - we will refuse entry to anyone who is, or appears to be, under the applicable age.
      • If we suspect that your ticket has been purchased fraudulently we may cancel your booking.
    3. TICKET FEES APPLICABLE TO YOUR TICKET
      • Fees may be payable for the purchase of the ticket. Details of all fees payable for your tickets will be clearly set out during the purchase process.
      • Fees may include a fee per ticket and/or a fee per order. For certain venues a renovation levy/facilities fee may also apply.

    4. RECEIVING YOUR TICKETS
      • Your tickets will be posted to the billing address of the debit/credit card holder. For e-tickets, your e-ticket will be sent to the email address registered during the ordering process.
      • We aim to dispatch your tickets as soon as possible however we are not able to specify the exact date of dispatch. If you have not received your tickets 5 days prior to the event, please contact us with details of your booking.
      • In certain circumstances it may be necessary to collect your tickets from the venue. If you are collecting your tickets from the venue, we will require details of a lead booker who will be present at the event and responsible for collection. Please ensure that the lead book brings the acknowledgement of order and the credit/debit card used to make the order if possible.
      • When you receive your tickets please carefully check them as mistakes cannot always be rectified.
      • If your tickets are returned to us we may choose to cancel your booking and refund you the ticket price (excluding all fees) (“Ticket Price”). We may be unable to issue replacement tickets for lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed tickets due to restrictions by the Ticket Supplier. When you receive your tickets, please keep them in a secure place. We will not be responsible for any tickets that are lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.

    5. RESELLING YOUR TICKETS
      • Except in the circumstances outlined within this clause 5, resale of Tickets is strictly prohibited and we reserve the right to cancel such tickets without refund and/or refuse entry to the event.
      • Tickets purchased by Groups Customers may be resold at face value subject to the provisions of clause 5.3-5.6 below.

    8. AT THE VENUE
      • In addition to your obligation at clause 5.5, we recommend that you make ticket holders aware of the following conditions of entry at the venue:
        • Ticket holders should arrive on time. Whilst every effort will be made to admit latecomers at a suitable break in the event, admission cannot always be guaranteed.
        • Ticket holders must keep their ticket safe as they will be required to produce it to gain entry to the event. They will also be required to produce their ticket upon request for inspection at any time. Failure to do so may result in the ticket holder being ejected from the venue.
        • Admission to the venue and the event is subject to the terms, conditions and regulations of the Ticket Supplier and the venue. Amongst other things ticket holders will need to comply with health and safety rules and any security requirements.
        • If you have purchased a ticket using a concession the ticket holder(s) will need to bring proof of identity and concession entitlement to the venue to gain entry.
        • Defacing a ticket will invalidate the ticket and the ticket holder will be refused entry to the venue and event without refund.
        • In certain circumstances, we or the venue may provide the ticket holder with alternative seats. Any alternative seats will be of an equivalent value.
        • Photography or recording is not permitted. Laser pens, dogs (except guide dogs) and food and drink (not purchased at the venue) may also be prohibited (please check with the venue).
        • Sometimes we’ll make video recordings of the crowd whilst ticket holders are at the venue.
