Where possible we are working with promoters to reschedule events and transfer tickets for shows which were affected during the shutdown. If you have tickets for any of the following events you will receive an email or letter from the box office to notify you of this and confirm ticketing arrangements. We ask for your patience while our team work hard to reschedule the dates and contact all customers individually.

  • If a show has been rescheduled then your tickets will have been automatically transferred to the new date and you do not need to do anything – easy!
  • If an event has been rescheduled and you are unable to attend the new date, or if we have not been able to reschedule the event then you are entitled to a refund. We would like to give you the option to continue to support The Cresset by accepting this refund in the form of a gift voucher which can be used for future events – this will help to support our venue and staff through what is a very difficult time
  • If your event is not listed then don’t worry – our booking guarantee means your tickets, and money are safe. Sometimes it can take a while for promoters to reschedule dates, particularly on large national tours, so please be patient and rest assured our team are doing everything they can to keep everyone up to date.

If you have any questions about your tickets please email our team who will be happy to help
