TICKET PURCHASING

2.1     All Tickets are sold subject to availability and to these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions should be read carefully prior to purchase and any queries relating to them should be raised with us prior to purchase, as purchase of Ticket(s) constitutes agreement of these Terms and Conditions. A valid Ticket must be produced to get into an Event. Please notify us of any access requirements at the time of booking. Removing any part of, altering or defacing the Ticket may invalidate Your Ticket.
2.2    It is your responsibility to check Your Ticket(s) as mistakes cannot always be rectified after purchase. Please check your Ticket(s) on receipt carefully and contact us immediately if there is a mistake.
2.3     It is not always possible to issue duplicate ticket(s). For example for non-seated events where there is a possibility of both the original and duplicate ticket(s) being used, compromising the licensed capacity of the venue. Duplicates may therefore be issued at the discretion of the Promoter or the Venue acting reasonably. If an e-Ticket is reissued only the most recent version will be valid, previous tickets will be void and entry to the venue may not be permitted.
2.4     We, and the Event Partner(s), reserve the right to provide alternative seats at an Event to those specified on the Ticket if the staging of the Event reasonably requires, provided they are of no less value to that stated on the Ticket.
2.5     Where a concession is claimed, proof of identity and concession entitlement (for example of age or student status) may be required.

3.4     Only one concession or discount is available per ticket.
3.5    If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect - regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on the Site or otherwise communicated to you; or you are able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or pre-sale date; or you are able to order a Ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale - then we will have the right to cancel that Ticket (or the order for that Ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid. This will apply regardless of whether because of human error or a transactional malfunction of this website or other SAMT operated system.

Problems with printing will not be our responsibility or the responsibility of the Venue. Unauthorised duplication of your e Ticket may prevent your admittance to the Event. SAMT is not responsible for any inconvenience caused by unauthorised duplication. If unauthorised duplicates appear, SAMT reserves the right to refuse entry to all Ticket holders and may credit the original purchaser the face value, which will constitute full remuneration. Any duplicate Ticket issued by SAMT, will render the original e Ticket null and void.

5
CHANGES TO EVENT

5.1    The Event Partner(s) reserves the right to make alterations to the published Event programme where reasonably necessary. Where such alteration is a material change (as described in clause 7), you may request a refund in accordance with clause 7.

Exchanges are not possible for Events with only one performance. In order to obtain an exchange you must contact us at least 48 hours before the Event.

If a discount has been applied to the Ticket(s), then this will only be honoured within the original terms and conditions of the offer.
7.2     Except where we offer an applicable Ticket exchange or resale facility, Ticket(s) cannot be exchanged, cancelled or refunded after purchase (except pursuant to clause 6).

7.4     A 'material' change to the programme of the Event is a change which, in our reasonable opinion, makes the Event materially different to the Event that purchasers of the Ticket, taken generally, could reasonably expect. A change of cast or the use of understudies in a theatre performance shall not be a material change.
7.5     Where an outdoor Event is cancelled or curtailed because of adverse weather, We shall not be liable to make any refund or pay any compensation beyond the refunds that may be payable under the Venue's or Event Partner(s) rules.
7.6     Where such a refund is sought due to cancellation, rescheduling or a material change to the programme of the Event, You must bring this to our attention as soon as possible upon becoming aware of such material change, cancellation or where the Event has been rescheduled, prior to the rescheduled Event. The refund for Ticket(s) equals the price paid by you to us for such Ticket, including any applicable fees
