Ticket Despatch

In the course of booking, you will usually be offered the option to have your tickets mailed to you. Postage is only available to addresses within the United Kingdom and there is an additional cost for this. If you do not pay the additional cost for posting, or you are booking for events which happen within 10 days, your tickets will automatically be held for collection.

Please note, if your booking contains certain concession tickets, postage will not appear as a delivery option. The entire booking must be collected from the Traverse Theatre Box Office, 10 Cambridge Street, as appropriate proof of entitlement must be presented.
