CANCELLATIONS DUE TO COVID-19: The Old Red Lion is happy to refund tickets to any performance cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. As well as a full refund, we are also offering the option to donate the cost of your unused ticket to the producing company of the show. In doing this, you will be helping them get back to creating the theatre you love.

Applications for refunds will be accepted up to 12 months after the date of the cancelled shows. Please email  to arrange.

The proceeds of any unclaimed tickets after this point will be donated back to the venue to support their post-lockdown recovery.

Latecomers cannot not be admitted.

Seating is unreserved. 

Due to the intimacy of the auditorium the theatre operates a strict no latecomers or re-admittance policy. Late entry will involve crossing the stage and, therefore, this policy is enforced for the benefit of both the actors and our audience members. 

We are under no obligation to offer refunds or exchanges on your tickets if you are refused entry to a performance due to being late or you are unable to attend a performance due to any travel problems beyond our control.


Tickets can only be transferred within performances of the same run and of the same price, subject to availability and at the discretion of the theatre for a £2 fee per ticket.

Requests to transfer tickets can only be made up until 6pm the day before the show for which you originally had tickets booked for, and by Friday 5pm for all performances Saturday-Monday.


Concessions apply to Senior Citizens, Unemployed, NHS staff, Students, Equity/BECTU/SDUK Members and people with registered disabilities. You will be required to show proof at the Box Office when you collect your tickets.


If you are registered disabled and require an essential companion in order to visit the theatre then we will provide your companion with a complimentary ticket.

The theatre is located on the first floor above the Old Red Lion Pub and access is gained through the pub and up a staircase with two 90o bends.

As a listed building we unfortunately have limited mobility access – so please do contact us in advance of your visit with access requirements on  and we will offer as much support as possible.


Tickets will not be refunded except in the case of a cancelled performance.  Personal arrangements including travel and accommodation relating to the event which have been arranged by you are at your own risk and are not refundable by us.


The use of mobile phones, cameras, video and any recording of the performance either audio or visual is strictly prohibited. The theatre reserves the right to refuse admission of such equipment.
