Terms & Conditions (valid at 1 January 2011)

Membership By becoming a member of Shaftesbury Arts centre you become a shareholder in the charitable company that is Shaftesbury Arts Centre and agree to the following:

  • to abide by the provisions of the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the charity and its rules, a copy of which is attached here.

Membership cards Membership cards are normally posted within 10 days of online purchase. They may also be collected from the Box Office during normal opening hours (Mon-Sat inc 10.30am-12.30pm).

Ticket purchase

Due to the increasing cost of processing credit/debit cards we reluctantly have to make a 50p per ticket handling fee that applies to tickets booked online or over the telephone, or when using a credit card at the box office. If you require tickets purchased online or over the telephone to be posted we make an additional £1 charge for this service.

Please also note:

  • Shaftesbury Arts Centre is not responsible for any ticket that is lost, stolen or destroyed.
  • Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase unless the performance is cancelled or rescheduled.
  • Tickets bought online can be collected from the Box Office up to 15 minutes before the start of a performance.
