How To Book Your Tickets

Ticket Delivery:

You can opt for Print At Home Tickets. You will receive an email with a PDF attachment containing your tickets. When arriving at the venue you can either display your tickets on a mobile device or printed on paper. 

If you would rather have physical tickets, these can be picked up from the Box Office at the event venue prior to attending your chosen event. 

Book Online:

Customers booking online are able to choose their seats.

If this will be the first time you have used the on-line booking system, we recommend you set up your account before proceeding to buy tickets or choose seats. We will send a confirmation of your password to your email address and you will then be able to book your seats.

As a general rule we do not allow single seats to be left unoccupied when you are booking online. It is hard for us to fill lots of single seats, as most bookings are made for two or more people; and so our website will not let you leave an empty seat between booked seats or at the end of a row. If you receive this warning, please look elsewhere in the auditorium for your seats, or call the box office for further assistance.

You can visit the Box Office at The Octagon Theatre or Westlands Entertainment Venue:

Babes In Arms Policy

Under 2's will be admitted free of charge to children's shows, but parents must obtain a special ticket from the Box Office on arrival at the theatre.

For all other shows we kindly request patrons contact the Box Office in advance to ascertain whether a performance is deemed to be suitable for young babies by the Management of The Octagon Theatre & Westlands Entertainment Venue. If considered to be the case, a ticket will be issued free of charge with the understanding that parents sit near an aisle and be prepared to remove themselves from the auditorium if their baby becomes unsettled. The Octagon Theatre & Westlands Entertainment Venue are family friendly venues and we are happy to assist parents wherever possible, but must also consider our other patrons enjoyment of the theatre and ensure they are not disrupted during performances.

Babes in Arms tickets for all performances permit under 2's to sit on the lap of a parent. If a parent wishes to have a separate seat for their baby they must purchase a ticket accordingly.
