Basis of Contract
In entering into this contract you have not relied on any representation or information from any source except posted on Our Website.
You acknowledge that you understand exactly what is included in the price of a Ticket and you are satisfied that the Ticket you have selected is suitable and satisfactory for your requirements.
The Contract between us comes into existence only when we write to you to confirm that the Ticket you want is available. Your payment does not create a contract. If we decline to provide a Ticket we shall immediately return your money to your credit card.
We may change this agreement and / or the way we provide a Ticket, at any time.
If we do:
the change will take effect when we post it on Our Website. You are advised to check this page from time to time.
if you make any payment for Tickets or Services in the future, you will do so under the terms posted on Our Website at that time.
When you buy a Ticket, in law you buy a personal licence to attend an Event. We may revoke that licence at any time. If that happens you are entitled only to the return of money paid.
To discourage unfair practices, we will not sell to you more than a maximum number of Tickets for an Event. That number varies from one Event to another and is specified on the page of Our Website describing that Event.
We may restrict sales to a maximum number of Tickets per person, per group or per credit card. If you buy a number which we regard as excessive, we may cancel some or all of the Tickets. We may do this without notifying you. If you wish to know whether your proposed purchase will be accepted, you should contact us via Our Website
You may not resell any Ticket. If you do, or attempt to do so, we are entitled to cancel all your Tickets without compensating you.

We may change the programme for events for circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
All ticket holders are required to treat the Magic Lantern Team, other members of the audience and performers with respect and courtesy. We will not tolerate any verbal or physical abuse and failure to behave appropriately will result in your removal from the venue.
Because you would be in breach of your implied obligation to behave in an acceptable way, no money will be refunded.
If you arrive after 5 minutes of the start time, it may not be possible to allow your entry in the Event. Alternatively, you may not be allowed admission until a suitable time.
We reserve the right to place you in different seats to those allocated if necessary.
