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.
  • to pay the charity an amount not exceeding £10 if the charity is dissolved while you are a member and for 12 months after you have ceased to be a member in accordance with clause 7 of the charity's Memorandum of Association.
  • to pay any membership subscriptions that are levied in accordance with the charity's Articles and/or Rules.

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.
