Why do we need to charge a booking fee?

Since the loss of our Council grant, and in order to provide you with the best entertainment possible, we need to charge a booking fee to secure our share of the ticket income.

On average, we receive less than 20% of the ticket price for the shows that you see at the West Cliff, with the majority of the ticket price going to the artists, producers and promoters. Charging a booking fee ensures that 100% of this extra revenue comes to the theatre.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the West Cliff Theatre.


Concessionary tickets are available for patrons over 60 years and children under 16 years on some shows.


Patrons who require their tickets to be posted should send a SAE (If booking in person or by phone). Alternatively we can post your tickets for £1.00 postage & handling charge.

Please note due to price rises Postage will increase to £1.50 in June


Please check your tickets carefully when booking as we are unable to offer refunds on tickets sold unless a show is cancelled in advance. We will try to resell tickets that cannot be used, however this will only be possible in the event that we are sold out.


The information on this website is correct at the time of going to press. We reserve the right to make alterations to the programme if necessary. We cannot be held responsible for cancellations or changes made by external promoters/hirers of the theatre.
