About us

Encore Tickets Limited is a website for purchasing theatre and event tickets.

How we work

You can visit the Box Office Tickets Limited website at www.boxoffice.co.uk to browse and purchase tickets to theatre performances and events. Tickets may be purchased via American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Union Pay or PayPal.

Encore Tickets Limited reserves the right to refuse to accept any users at its sole discretion.

Ordering and availability

The contract between you and us in relation to the Tickets ordered (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Contract.

Encore Tickets Limited guarantees that the ticket you purchase through the Services will provide valid entry to the event described on the ticket, and that the ticket you receive from us will be the same one as the one purchased through the Services.

If the ticket you receive from us is not the same one as purchased through the Services, then Encore Tickets Limited will provide you with a ticket of the equivalent face value or, if we cannot provide this, we will provide a full refund, including any Encore Tickets Limited fees.

Risk and title

Tickets ordered will be at your risk from the time of collection. Ownership of the Tickets ordered will also pass to you on collection, provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Tickets has been received.

Price and payment

The price of Tickets is as quoted on the Site. All prices which are displayed include any applicable payment booking, processing, or order fees. All prices are inclusive of any applicable VAT. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.

By completing and submitting the electronic order form (or proceeding through the 'checkout process') you are making a purchase of goods.

By completing and submitting the electronic order form (or proceeding through the 'checkout process') you are making a purchase of goods.

If accurate personal contact details are not provided at the time of booking (correct email, phone number and billing address), we reserve the right to cancel and refund the transaction.

We try our very best to ensure the accuracy of all of our prices, but in rare instances pricing errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of your booking, we will contact you via email or phone or letter and will give you the option of either (a) re-processing your booking at the correct price or (b) cancelling your booking with a full refund of any monies already paid.

Personal arrangements including travel and accommodation relating to the event are the ticket holder’s own risk and in no event shall Encore Tickets Limited, the venue or the producer/promoter be liable for any wasted expenditure beyond the ticket price, booking fee, and order fee.


Payment for all orders must be made by credit, debit card or PayPal, or any other acceptable payment method listed on the checkout page.

You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorise payment for any reason. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this.

This site acts as an agent only and has no control over the event or venue. Tickets are sold subject to the Rules and Regulations of the event organiser/venue which are available on request. The event organiser/venue reserves the right to make alterations to the advertised arrangements or featured artists, to refuse admission and to request latecomers to await admission until a convenient break. The ticket holder has a right only to a seat of a value corresponding to that stated on the ticket. Both Encore and the venue management reserve the right to provide an alternative seat to that stated on the ticket.

Ticket collection

If you have selected Care of the respective theatre’s box office, tickets and items purchased from this site by customers outside the UK will be available for collection from the event venue on the date of performance or upon arrival at the hotel, restaurant or attraction. Tickets will only ever be posted to the registered billing address of the credit card holder in the UK. Should box-office pickup not be available due to COVID-19 or any other reasons, We will update customers via email with alternative delivery options.

You will need to bring a form of personal identification and your reference number if you collect your tickets from the venue. We will send you a reminder email before you are due to attend your theatre performance.

Cancellation and refunds

Tickets or Packages cannot be exchanged or cancelled, unless specifically stated otherwise at the time of purchase, or you have purchased a Flexiticket option. If you purchased Flexiticket, you can change your booking to an alternative date up to 3 days before the original performance date, and protect yourself against cancellation charges.

In the event a live event is cancelled or postponed, Encore Tickets will attempt to contact you to inform you of refund or exchange procedures. Encore Tickets or Owner, as applicable, guarantees that if an event is cancelled and not rescheduled, Encore Tickets, or where the ticket is purchased from the Owner, will facilitate a return of the full purchase price of your tickets in the form of a Voucher or Premium Voucher for the transaction amount, at the sole discretion of Encore Tickets. A Voucher is a credit worth the same amount as the total amount charged in the original transaction. A Premium Voucher is a credit worth some amount greater than the total amount charged in the original transaction. If Encore Tickets does not receive a written request for a refund (not including any applied booking or order fees) in lieu of a Voucher or Premium Voucher within ten (10) days from the issuance of the Voucher or Premium Voucher, then it will consider the offer of a Voucher or Premium Voucher in lieu of refund to be accepted by the Customer. Should a Voucher or Premium Voucher be used towards the purchase of a future event that itself is subsequently cancelled, a replacement Voucher or Premium Voucher in the amount of the purchase price (not including booking, handling, or order fees) will be issued and this will not be replaced by a Voucher or Premium Voucher relative to the value of that successive transaction. For exact instructions, or to request a refund for any cancelled or postponed event, please visit https://support.boxoffice.co.uk/support/home.

Should any user disagree with the final resolution we provide, user will have access to a free Alternative Dispute Resolution for Consumer Disputes (ADR) service through STAR. Details of how to contact STAR and make a complaint through ADR should be provided to the customer by the STAR member. Full details of STAR’s ADR procedure can be downloaded as a PDF file HERE.


Customers who arrive late for a performance may not be admitted until a suitable break. Certain venues/productions may not admit latecomers at all. You must enquire with the venue for specific information on their latecomer policy. In the event that it is not possible to admit a latecomer for any reason, no refunds will be offered.
