Disabled visitors are entitled to one concessionary ticket and one free companion/carer ticket. The concessionary ticket rate applies to Newham residents, over 65s, and JSA claimants. You may be asked to show evidence of this when booking or collecting your ticket.


Tickets are required for each child attending. This includes children under 1, though no charge will be made for tickets for under 1s unless otherwise specified.

Ticket Delivery

All tickets booked in advance will be held at the Box Office for collection on the day of your visit. At the point of collection you will need the confirmation e-mail to accompany your booking along with appropriate ID for any concession tickets booked.

Tickets will not be refunded unless an event is cancelled.
