Every theatre performance is unique, but this is especially the case at the Open Air Theatre where the stage, lawn and entire auditorium are uncovered.
It's best to come prepared for all types of weather: bringing your own shade in the afternoon is particularly important as is a jumper for the end of evening performances. So sun hats, sun cream, sunglasses, raincoats and rain hats should all be considered. Although the vast majority of performances are completed each year, as the auditorium, stage and lawn are completely uncovered, we may have to stop and re-start the show.
On average, 94% of our performances are completed each season. In the event that the performance doesn't go ahead, or is abandoned due to bad weather, you can exchange your tickets for a future performance in our main summer season. We will never cancel a performance before the advertised start time. No refunds are given.
Please note that, if the temperature during a performance exceeds 40 degrees, the performance will be abandoned, and the weather exchange policy will apply.
MOREoutdoor films and one-off live music and comedy shows are never cancelled because of the weather.
Tickets are non-refundable in the event of cancellation because of the weather but may be exchanged in accordance with our policy set out in section 5 of our Terms and Conditions.
Once the 2024 Season is on sale and you're ready to exchange, you can either:
(a) the quickest, easiest way to exchange your ticket is to complete this online form; or
