All bookings are made via a secure server so you can be sure that your details remain safe at all times. On completing your booking you will be sent confirmation by email. On selected events, you can have your tickets emailed to you via the ‘Print at Home’ option. The ticket will be in a pdf format and attached to your ticket confirmation email. You can either print this attachment and show the steward at the door or you can show it on your mobile device. If you have booked a concession price, ID may be required.

Theatre Tokens are vouchers which can be used at over 240 different venues nationwide including Warwick Arts Centre. Theatre Tokens can be used against all events, including Comedy, Music, Theatre, Dance and Film.
Theatre Tokens can be bought from Warwick Arts Centre over the counter only, but are also available to buy online from www.theatretokens.com or by calling 020 3011 0755. They can also be bought on the High Street from most Waterstones and WH Smith stores. As well as from Coventry Tourist Information Centre in the city centre.
If you want to buy tickets from Warwick Arts Centre using Theatre Tokens it’s best to do this in person over the counter at the Box Office. We can give change for your Theatre Tokens in vouchers. Any change below £1 will be given in cash.
You can also reserve tickets over the phone and post your Theatre Tokens to us. We do, however, recommend posting Theatre Tokens via recorded delivery, as we cannot accept liability if your tokens are lost or mislaid in the post. We are not able to post change and vouchers back to you via recorded delivery and would therefore encourage you to send a smaller amount in Theatre Tokens and make up the remaining balance by cheque made payable to the University of Warwick. Also, if you want your tickets posted out, remember to include our postage fee of 75p.
Unfortunately, Theatre Tokens cannot be used on our website.
All pre-paid tickets must be collected from the Box Office at least 30 minutes before the start of the performance.

If you would like to take advantage of this service you must return your original tickets to the Box Office at least 24 hours before the performance. Please note – this does not apply to tickets purchased through ticketing agents. We accept no responsibility for tickets or services purchased via an agency or third party.

We add a booking fee* to all tickets sold at Warwick Arts Centre, whether booked online, over the phone or in person. The booking fee is £2 on Comedy and Music events in the Butterworth Hall and £1 on all other events. By levying these small fees we are able to retain a greater share of the ticket income than by simply raising our ticket prices. The sum raised is invested directly back into the organisation, helping to maintain the unique, wide-ranging, contemporary programme that is enjoyed year-round.
*Exceptions to the fee will include schools and group bookings.
