While the Theatre is closed due to the national lockdown, the Box Office is closed for in person bookings. Our live phone lines are also closed but you can call 01243 781312 and leave a message, and we will endeavour to respond within 48 hours. Alternatively, our online chat facility is available via our website, usually between 11am - 3pm, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Box Office is currently a reduced team, so we would appreciate your patience.
We do not charge booking fees or for using a credit card. If you are having trouble with your online booking please call the Box Office on 01243 781312 (opening hours above). Alternatively visit our Online booking support page for downloadable and video guides.
We accept MasterCard, Visa and Maestro. Cheques are payable to Chichester Festival Theatre. We also accept SOLT theatre tokens and Chichester Festival Theatre gift vouchers. Please note SOLT theatre tokens are not redeemable online.
For all performances, E-tickets will be sent by email. These do not have to be printed - you can show them on your smartphone for us to scan on entry. Please ensure the brightness is turned up for the scanners to read the QR code.
In order to reduce queueing and minimise contact, we are not offering the option to collect tickets from the Box Office. For customers without an email address, paper tickets will be sent by post one week prior to the performance.
Refunds, returns and exchanges
Tickets may be exchanged for another performance of the same production, on condition that we receive the tickets at least 48 hours before the performance (7 days for group bookings). In the unlikely event that the performance you have booked for is cancelled or rescheduled, or is abandoned when less than half of the performance has taken place, you are entitled to a refund of the price paid. For full details, including specific terms relating to COVID-19, please view our terms and conditions.
