Do I need to purchase tickets for my children?
For The Drum Theatre presented shows children under two will be admitted at no charge provided they sit on an accompanying adult’s knee and are taken out of the auditorium if they are disturbing the enjoyment of other patrons. For some commercial performances the producer may request to vary this policy (for example: free admission only for children under 12 months or perhaps all children under 14 admitted free).
Producers may also require that everyone attending the performance hold a valid ticket, including babes in arms. Please call us to clarify any ticketing conditions relating to commercial shows as the Ticket and Customer Service team will be delighted to answer your questions.

Changes in program
The Promoter reserves the right to withdraw, replace, add or substitute artists or performers without notice.
If you arrive after the performance has commenced you may be asked to wait for a suitable time to enter the theatre to ensure disruption to the performance is limited. Occasionally a performance will have a total lockout where latecomers will not be admitted once the performance has commenced. Unfortunately tickets cannot be refunded under these circumstances.
Lost your tickets or left them at home? The Ticket & Customer Service Office team will be happy to reprint them for you on the day of the performance with suitable ID.
