Box Office Times
Please click here for this month's Box Office opening times.
The box office will be open on performance days until half an hour after the performance begins.
When will my tickets arrive?
All tickets are sent by 2nd class post unless the show is less than 7 days away. They are sent out between 5-10 days from the date of purchase unless otherwise stated.
Can tickets be posted overseas?
No. Unfortunately we are unable to post tickets outside of the UK. Overseas customers must collect their tickets from our box office on the night of the show.
I've lost/damaged my tickets, what can I do?
Please contact us by calling the Scarborough Spa Box Office on 01723 821888.
Can I exchange my tickets to another show?
This is not possible as once tickets have been purchased they are non-refundable. In some special circumstances, authorised exchanges may be made i.e. if disabled seating is now required (subject to suitable seating available).
What is the age restriction for events?
The age restriction for each event can vary depending on the content of the show as some events may be deemed unsuitable for Children. Where there is no set age limit, often it is left to the discretion of the parent or guardian. However, please note that anyone aged 14 or under should be accompanied by an adult, aged 18 or over, both at the time of booking tickets and for the concert itself. If you are unsure, please check with the Scarborough Spa Box Office before booking your tickets to avoid disappointment.
Do I need I.D. to collect my tickets and where do I collect them from?
You will need to present the credit or debit card used to purchase the tickets and sign a receipt on collection. This is to protect both you and ourselves from potential credit card fraud. Your tickets will be available for collection from the Scarborough Spa Box Office in the main foyer.
How can I pay?
You can pay for tickets using any major credit or debit card, by cheque or postal order. If purchasing in person at our Box Office you can also pay with cash.
Do you charge booking fees?
From 1 April 2017, the following ticket fees apply:
Bookings made by telephone or online will be subject to a fee of 12% of the face value of tickets plus a fulfilment fee of £2 per transaction if tickets are to be posted or £1 per transaction if tickets are to be collected from the Spa Box Office. An option may also be available for some performances to print your tickets at home for which there will be no fulfilment fee applied.
Bookings made in person at the Spa Box Office will be subject to a fee of 5% of the face value of tickets unless otherwise stated.
I’m getting ‘AVS Declined’ / ‘AVS error’ when paying by debit/credit card online – what does it mean?
If you receive an ‘AVS failed’ error this is due to the address you have entered not matching that of your payment card. Our Ticketing System will only authorise debit/credit cards if the full name and address details match where the card is registered. If these do not match then the card transaction will be declined and we will not be able to process the sale. This may result in your account appearing to have a charge taken – this will be removed by your bank automatically within 3 to 7 days.
Who do I contact for lost property?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01723 821888.
How do I make a complaint?
Scarborough Spa endeavors to make your visit as enjoyable as possible, however if you do encounter a problem please feel free to contact us by emailing email@example.com F.A.O Customer Services.
Please note it is often easier to resolve a complaint at the time as there is often very little we can do after the event. A Duty Manager always works at each event so it is always best, in the first instance, to speak with them at the time to see if your problem can be resolved immediately.
Can I hire Scarborough Spa?
Yes! Scarborough Spa is available for hire for both corporate and private events. Be it a conference, exhibition or a special event, we have multiple spaces for you to choose from. For more information please contact our Events Team on 01723 376774.
Do you offer any pre-show dining options?
Yes! Pre-show dining is available on select shows. You can see if it is available on the individual event page and book via the pre-show dining link.
Can I get married at Scarborough Spa?
Absolutely. Scarborough Spa offers fantastic wedding packages, with the option of the ceremony in the Suncourt. For further information call 01723 376774 or visit the dedicated weddings page.
