Why Do We Charge A Booking Fee

Wherever possible we will not charge you an additional booking fee.  However, for certain shows, we have to add this. Generally, around ¼ of the ticket revenue for a show comes to the venue.  The rest goes to paying the production companies and other costs.  In order to bring you the best shows, which may be more expensive to the venue, we sometimes have to add a booking fee to the ticket price in order to maintain our share of the income. This then comes direct to the venue to help maintain facilities and general upkeep.  Thank you for your support.
