"Terms" means these terms and conditions.

"Ticket" means any ticket or wristband (as applicable) for You to attend an Event.

"Venue" means the venue where the Event is held.

"We" means Metropolis Music Limited and "Us" and "Our" shall be read accordingly.

  1. These Terms and Conditions incorporate, and should be read in accordance with, Our full terms and conditions of booking and any Venue and/or Agent terms, conditions and regulations, which You can obtain from the Venue and/or Agent. In the event of inconsistency, these Terms and Conditions prevail to the extent of the inconsistency.
  2. Your possession of this Ticket constitutes Your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
  3. Tickets are personal revocable licences and shall at all times remain Our property and subject to these Terms and Conditions.
  4. Upon purchase, please check Tickets carefully as mistakes cannot always be rectified after purchase.
  5. The Event is not suitable for young children. Children aged 14 years or below are NOT permitted. Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (18 or over), who is a paying Ticket holder, at all times. An adult who is 18 or over can accompany up to 4 children aged under 16 years at one time. Children who are aged 16 and above can attend without being accompanied but must have ID on them at all times. We do not accept any parental or supervisory duty of care or liability for any under 18s on site at the Venue. We reserve the right to request that you prove your age when entering the Event.
  6. Please contact Us in advance of the Event if You have any specific access requirements in relation to the Event, otherwise it may not be possible for Us to meet your needs. All requests should be addressed to the box office at [email protected]
  7. You must retain this Ticket on Your person at all times during the Event.
  8. Your Ticket may be invalidated if any part of it is removed, altered or defaced.
  9. Where necessary, We reserve the right to make alterations to the published Event or programme. Artists and billed attractions are subject to change. Our liability for the cancellation, rescheduling or material change to an Event is limited to the refund set out in condition 11 below.
  10. We will not refund or exchange this Ticket unless the Event is cancelled or re-scheduled or there is a material change to the Event. A ‘material’ change is a change which, in our opinion, makes the Event materially different to the Event that any purchaser of a Ticket could reasonably expect. A change to the artists performing at the Event shall not be a material change. No scheduled acts may be considered as headline acts, regardless of their relative fame or prominence in the billing, and so cancellation by an artist will not entitle you to a refund, regardless of their position on the bill. The refund for Tickets shall be as per each Agent’s own terms and conditions. Where a cancellation takes place part-way through the Event, you may only be entitled to a refund of part of the face value Ticket price. Personal arrangements including travel, subsistence and accommodation relating to the Event which have been arranged by You are at Your own risk and We shall not be liable for any loss of enjoyment or wasted expenditure beyond the Ticket price and relevant booking fee (excluding any transaction fees).
  11. If an Event is rescheduled or materially changed, You must claim Your refund in good time before the rescheduled or materially changed event takes place. If an Event is cancelled, You will be notified by the relevant Agent where You purchased your Tickets.
  12. You agree that We will not be liable for any loss, injury or damage to any person (including Yourself) or property however caused (including by Us): (a) in any circumstances where there is no breach of a legal duty of care owed by Us; (b) in circumstances where such loss or damage is not a reasonably foreseeable result of any such breach (save for death or personal injury resulting from Our negligence); or (c) to the extent that any increase in any loss or damage results from breach by You of any of these Terms and Conditions.
  13. You may not re-sell or transfer a Ticket if prohibited by law. Where a Ticket is offered for re-sale in accordance with these Conditions, You must provide the buyer with full details of the Ticket. The buyer of a Ticket must be made aware of these Conditions and any other terms and conditions applicable to the Event.
  14. You may not combine a Ticket with any hospitality, travel or accommodation service and/or any other merchandise, product or service to create a ticket package (“Ticket Package”) and sell or otherwise transfer (or facilitate the sale or transfer of) such Ticket Package for profit or commercial gain, offer such Ticket Package as an incentive or prize in a promotion or competition, or otherwise dispose of such Ticket Package in the course of a business.
  15.
