Standard Terms & Conditions of Sale of Tickets
Tickets advertised by us by way of our web sites at www.mayflower.org.uk and www.ticketsouth.co.uk and by way of official advertising literature produced on our behalf (our "Official Advertisements") are sold by us, namely The Mayflower Theatre Trust, a company limited by guarantee (Company Number 2026445) and a registered charity and/or, if the tickets are for performances for which tickets are being sold on an agency basis, ticket south, a trading name of Mayflower Enterprises Limited (Company Number 3193293) which is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Mayflower Theatre Trust, (together "The Mayflower") to you on the following basis:
We are entitled to refuse any order placed by you;
We will notify you over the telephone or in writing or by online confirmation if we accept your order and that acceptance will be deemed to have been effectively communicated to you when we make that communication to you (whether or not you receive such communication). Such acceptance remains subject to the condition that tickets are available for the performances selected by you until such time as tickets, with the confirmed seat numbers written on them, have been issued to you;
No order will be accepted until we have received payment of the whole of the price of the tickets that you order;
By accepting your order we bring into existence a legally binding contract between ourselves and you;
In some circumstances, tickets advertised on this web site or on our Official Advertisements are advertised by us as agents for a third party. If this is the case:-
the placing of an order by you by whichever means will constitute your consent to our passing on such details to the third party; and
your tickets will inform you on whose behalf we are acting as agent and with whom your contract is made.
If you are ordering tickets which you have seen advertised by us on our web site, by contacting us and placing an order, you confirm that you have read and accept the terms and conditions of the use of our web site shown elsewhere on our web site which relate to the material and information displayed on our web site.
When ordering tickets on our web site, the web site will not prevent you from making infeasible bookings such as tickets to two different performances at the same time. If an erroneous booking is made, a refund will not be given in any circumstances, even if clause 4.1.1 below applies
Price and Dispatch
The price payable for the tickets is as set out on our web site or on our Official Advertisements. A 7.5% booking fee per ticket is added to bookings for Mayflower Shows when purchased online, by telephone or post.
Tickets will normally be dispatched to the address given by you when you place your order, unless the date of the performance for which you have ordered tickets ("the Performance") is within fourteen days, in which case you must collect the tickets from the ticket office at The Mayflower, Commercial Road, Southampton, during its normal opening hours, or other address if so advised.
Tickets may not be dispatched immediately where we are acting as an agent on behalf of a promoter and that promoter gives alternative instructions about the dispatch of tickets. However, you will be given notification of dispatch once you have ordered your tickets.
Once you have received your tickets, you should check them and you must inform us of any errors within two working days, or before the performance, whichever is sooner.
Tickets may be reserved by telephone or in person for three working days at the end of which time payment must be received or the reservation will be cancelled. Tickets reserved by telephone or paid for by phone or post will incur a 7.5% booking fee. Tickets may not be reserved within three days of the performance.
The taking of photographs or the making of recordings (on any format) of the Performance is expressly forbidden (unless it is expressly permitted in writing by the promoter, the venue and the performer). You consent to the filming and sound recording of yourself in the audience.
The Mayflower, the Management of the venue at which the Performance is taking place and/or the promoter of the Performance each reserve the right to:
refuse admission to you;
request latecomers to await admission to the Performance until a convenient break in the Performance;
refuse re-admission to those leaving during the Performance; and
request that you leave the Performance;
make alterations to the advertised details of the Performance (including Principals and cast members) and make alterations to the script or the content of any particular Performance at any time up to and including and during the Performance.
If, at any time during the Performance it is cancelled, postponed, suspended or delayed for any reason, the Mayflower will not make any refunds nor will they be liable for any loss caused by such cancellation, postponement, suspension or delay.
In relation to tickets sold by us for performances at The Mayflower theatre whereby we are acting on our own accord and not as an agent for a third party (please check the details provided on our web site or our Official Advertisements in relation to the listed promoter of the relevant performance):
we will exchange your tickets for another performance of the same show at the same price of ticket subject to availability provided that you give us seven working days notice prior to the date of the Performance of your wish to exchange tickets. Please telephone 02380 711811 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an exchange. Handling charges of £2.50 per ticket will be payable for exchanges. The 7.5% telephone booking fee will apply to the new booking, regardless of how the original booking was made. Tickets must be returned to the Sales Office, The Mayflower, Commercial Road, Southampton SO15 1GE, before the exchange of tickets can take place;
No refunds will be given except in the event of cancellation of a performance prior to the performance;
We will not re-sell on your behalf any tickets sold by us;
Tickets which are resold or transferred for profit or commercial gain by anyone other than the Mayflower or one of its businesses or authorised agents will become voidable and the holder may be refused entry;
We reserve the right to provide seats other than those specified from the seats issued to you to the same or to a higher value;
Children under two years old will not be admitted to the Performance unless it is defined on our web site or our Official Advertisements as a "Children's Show" in which case a ticket will need to be purchased for every child, including babes in arms. If admittance for babies as advertised as free, they will still need to be allocated a ticket, whether they occupy a seat or not.
In relation to tickets sold by us for performances whereby we are acting as an agent for a third party who will be the promoter or the venue at which the Performance is held ("the Third Party") (please check details provided on our web site or our Official Advertisements in relation to the listed promoter or venue of the relevant performance):
Such tickets are subject to the terms and conditions of that Third Party, which you are advised to check as they may vary, and, in the particular case of outdoor events, may include restrictions on barbecues, picnics, tents or umbrellas;
You must contact the Third Party to obtain information and arrangements for traffic approaches, parking and for information relating to access for those ticket purchasers/ticket holders who are disabled. We make no representations or warranties that any such information provided by us in this regard is accurate, complete or up to date and we expressly exclude all liability for any such representations made by our employees or representatives in this regard;
No tickets sold by us acting as agents for a Third Party can be exchanged, refunded or returned except with the express authority of the Third Party;
If, prior to the commencement of the performance, the event is cancelled or postponed to a later date, we will contact you and any refunds will be made by the Third Party only, unless the Third Party makes such monies available to us; the face value of the ticket only will be refunded;
Where the Performance is scheduled to take place out of doors, you should assume (unless notified otherwise) that the Performance will not be cancelled or postponed in the event of inclement weather conditions;
Information provided by us in relation to tickets for restricted viewing seats may not be accurate and complaints should be addressed to the Third Party prior to or during the Performance; the Mayflower expressly exclude all liability for any representations made by our employees or representatives relating to restricted viewing tickets in circumstances where a Third Party is involved.
In relation to tickets sold by us for Restaurant / Themed Events at The Mayflower theatre:
In the event of cancellation of tickets sold as a Restaurant/Theme package, written notice must be given at the earliest opportunity. Tickets for the package may be exchanged for another date of the same show, subject to availability. No refunds can be given for the cancellation of a package.
In the event of a dinner only booking, cancellation must be made at the earliest opportunity. Up until two weeks before the dinner booking an administration charge of £5.00 per person will be made and the balance credited to the customer's credit/debit card. No refunds can be given for cancellations less than two weeks before the date of a dinner only booking.
In the unlikely event that minimum numbers of restaurant bookers are not met, a full refund will be offered or the booking may be exchanged with another date for the same show, subject to availability.
No liability is accepted in relation to the tickets advertised or sold by us as agents for a Third Party or for any aspect of the relationship between you and that Third Party.
Although we will do our best to correct our errors and omissions on our part as quickly as practicable after being notified of them, we do not accept any liability for any errors or omissions, howsoever caused and we reserve the right to change information, specifications and descriptions of listed performances at any time.
We do not accept liability for any losses or claims arising from any inability to access our web site or any failure to complete a booking on the web site or with our bookings office.
We do not accept any liability for any indirect or consequential loss of any kind in contract, tort or otherwise arising out of the use of the web site or the purchase of any tickets or other goods or services from us by whatever means.
We will only be liable for direct loss (save in the case of death or personal injury arising from negligence) up to a maximum total of the price of the tickets or other goods or services purchased in respect of any claim.
Nothing in this clause 5 is, however, intended to limit any rights you may have as a consumer that may not be excluded by law.
Security on our web site
Our web site uses industry standard encryption software and a stand alone secure server to make sure the safety of orders placed on our web site.

It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
If you do not wish your personal information to be used for contacting you with information, please inform the Mayflower Marketing Department or check the appropriate box on the order form (if applicable).
