However, tickets may not always be available for immediate delivery, particularly in cases when the tickets have been purchased far in advance of the event in question.

Please be aware that if this option is required to get your tickets in time, and if you have not selected this option, we will automatically upgrade you to this service and you will be charged for the difference.

Stalls (or Orchestra Stalls) refers to the main seating area that begins below, or at the same level as the stage and rises gradually back through the auditorium. The centre front section is normally considered the premium seating area.
The Dress Circle (or Royal Circle) section refers to the first tier of seating above the stalls section. The front section is usually considered as premium seating with un-restricted views of the stage. Rows rise more steeply than in the stalls to enable good sight lines from all rows.
The Grand Circle (also known as the Upper Circle) refers to the second level tier of seating above the Dress Circle. Seating is raked progressively steeper but all seats offer a good view of the stage.
Boxes can differ greatly between theatres. In older theatres they are aligned in the sides of the auditorium boxes are often not on sale as the visibility of the stage is often highly restricted. In more contemporary theatres the boxes can be part of the first tier of seating.
The floor typically refers to the main area that begins below or at the same level as the stage. Sometimes this area will have seats and sometimes it will be standing room only. Typically when there are no seats the area will be referred to as General Admission.
The layers around the Floor are typically numbered sections, often in groups of 100s (e.g. 100s, 200s, 300s) with the lower the number the closer the section is to the middle.
If you have a disability, or require special access, please contact the venue's box office directly, as they will be able to offer full support and discuss seating options with you.
