ALL TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE

All tickets sold for SU events, are subject to the terms and conditions set out on the SU website and to the venue regulations. A breach of any of these conditions may render your ticket invalid. 

All sales are final, and refunds are not available on tickets once they have been purchased (including duplicates or purchases made in error, tickets bought for the wrong event or non-attendance due to illness or injury). Please note that this is standard practice at every entertainments venue in the UK.

In the event of UCSU completely cancelling an event (as opposed to rescheduling) tickets will be refunded to the original purchaser at the price paid, via the means paid less the booking fee.  Tickets will not be refunded under any other circumstances.

UCSU will not refund tickets if we have to cancel or change the event in any way because of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control (Force Majeure). These can include, for example, war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity and its consequences, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, epidemics and pandemics, unavoidable technical problems with venues.

The event has been stopped whilst in progress due to circumstances beyond our control, which may be deemed as too unsafe to continue. In this instance, a decision will be made by management as to whether refunds will be offered to those with tickets. However, refunds will only be given in special circumstances and as approved by management.

All tickets advertised for sale are subject to availability.  In the event of us being unable to supply the tickets ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible.  Please note that booking fees are NOT refundable.

In all instances management’s decision is final, based on the individual circumstances, and not open to discussion.

THERE ARE NO OTHER INSTANCES IN WHICH A REFUND MAY BE OFFERED.  If you have a question or query, then please contact the UCSU Directly.

For events with physical tickets such as the Summer Ball, Graduation Ball or Sports Awards, it is the responsibility of the individual purchaser to keep their ticket safe once it has been collected. Please note that replacement tickets will not be issued in the event of their loss or damage, and will need to be repurchased in this instance. It is advised that you write your name and Student number on the back of your ticket so that it can be returned if handed in.

The management reserves right of admission to either venue. This is performed in line with our policies and licensing law.
